The Working Girl and the Privileged
I'm enjoying these two new thimble-sized teacups I picked up at the Chinese Garden. I'm calling them the Working Girl and the Privileged. They are both me.
I'm a conscientious and hardworking employee. I give a lot to my employer. I manage through the turmoil and stresses - along with the benefits - of corporate life.
I'm also privileged, simply by being born an American into a middle class family. I have an advanced education which affords me some job flexibility and security. I have a safe home. I have a loving husband, family and friends.
I take none of this for granted. I often think of how lucky I am to simply have been granted life into my family, this century, my geography. And I wonder how I can be of service in this world to so many who don't have the same.
