Isaac went outside with his digital camera today and took some gorgeous photos.
My skills as a photographer are nearly non existent and I use a pretty cheap digital camera for our business so
I asked him if he would like to be our business photographer and I handed him two products.
He asked me where he should take them and I asked him to decide.
When he came back inside and showed me the photos which I was more than happy with and handed him two dollars his response was, "wow, really?"
Now our family probably has a convoluted sense of money. $20.00 to us is a lot. We still make less than what Mike was making over 15 years ago when he was on his career track.
I didn't expect that $2.00 would make a fifteen year old happy.
The real message, though, that I wanted him to get was that when you are engaged in something you enjoy doing and get paid for it, then it doesn't seem like work. Wouldn't that be a great way to live?
