sweet validation

My husband came home the other day and said one of the deepest, most reassuring things to me.  He said, “I was at work today and I was thinking about our jobs. At my job I work hard and make good money but there are 50 other people that line up the work for me, schedule it, sell it, fix our equipment, etc. So I’m good at what I do but I only have to focus on my specific area.  Noelle, if you even make $1 or $50 or $1000 it’s all because of you. You create your art, you put it in your computer and edit it or put it on your sites. You sell it, you make your website and business cards, you mail your own work.  You should be so proud of yourself that you are doing it, you are making money doing what you love.”

I just got teary. To have the man that I love most in this world so truly validate my work and my efforts was one of the kindest things anyone has ever said to me.

To my husband’s credit and every other person who is not their own boss; he busts his ass and is one of the hardest working people I know. He’s dedicated and great at what he does.   I just know that me working from home on my own now versus when I was working for other companies is completely different.  Different challenges and different rewards. Regardless of what field you are in, it feels really great to have the person you love be supportive. I’m so blessed.
