Mother’s Day at Work

May 11, 2008 at 2:12 pm Leave a comment

It’s Mother’s Day and I’m here working at the Library.  Yep, it’s a bummer, but I actually volunteered for this day.  While my mother was alive, I never worked a single Mother’s Day Sunday, but now I’ve worked two in the past three years.  Our neighboring library is closed today, so we get twice the traffic in ours.  Working on the Reference Desk for three out of five hours is just my cup of tea.  So far, I’ve had three really great research-type questions for which I’ve been able to provide quality material for potential papers.  Two of the three patrons were genuinely interested in the topic, which makes it even more rewarding.  There are entire weeks that go by without this kind of reference activity!  There are, indeed, good things to be done on Mother’s Day.

On a personal note, my daughter-in-law actually signed an email to me “your daughter” – WOW!!  I’ve been waiting for a daughter for years.  Now I have one – as well as a granddaughter.  As I grow older, it’s not the material things that matter nearly as much as the emotional rewards.  My life is good.
