The Interruptions ARE your job.

Recently, our pastor mentioned that once, when he was trying to get a project finished and feeling frustrated at repeated calls/interruptions from parishioners, his wife pointed out that "those interruptions are your job". Her comment stopped him in his tracks because, of course, it is true!

Well, ever since he shared that, I've been thinking how the same is true for parents; we have a daily "to-do" list that we try diligently to finish. Our children, though, seem to think their needs, problems, concerns and worries are far more important than any "to-do" list...and they are right! Parenting, like pastoring, is a calling in which the "interruptions" are the most important part of the job!
