Yesterday morning I taught Sunday School and part of the lesson required each child to fill out a little questionnaire about themselves. The standard questions: your name, your birthday, who is in your family, your best friend, etc, etc were there.
One other question was:
What will be your main job during your life?
I called a few kids up to read theirs and then I called on Noah.
Noah’s answer was:
To be happy.
To. Be. Happy. Not a doctor, not a lawyer, not a teacher, not an athlete, not a creative. He didn’t list a profession. He simply said his main job during his life is to be happy.
Needless to say, I for one am super proud that he is able to make that distinction.
