I have a pretty hectic schedule at work and sometimes it can get to me. Lately we have been very short staffed and I’ve to do all my own work plus additional sorting and shelving, which is not hard, but terribly time-consuming and often tiring. Anyway, while fairly irritated with this situtation yesterday and shelving non-fiction (which involves fixing books on the shelf as I go), I heard a boy of six that I helped a few minutes find a book about space run to his mother and exclaim, “Look at this!!! The lady gave me an AWESOME book. Oh My God, can you see how awesome it is. It is total AWESOME!!!”
Working with kids is a real treasure. Although trying at times. Their laughter or enthusiasm for small things always make my day much brighter. I am very happy with my decision every day to go into children’s work.
