The job of a lifetime

I just read a letter to the editor in Men's Journal that extolled the virtues of fatherhood. It was in response to a recent article by the magazine that described a series of dream jobs. The author of the letter felt that the job of 'father' was a glaring omission. In his words:

"Drawbacks: Less nights out with friends. What it pays: Nothing. Why it's a dream job: When the boss says "I love you", everything else seems wildly insignificant."

I like his word choice, and "wildly insignificant" is a great description of how everything else seems to fade to the background when Dominic gives me an unanticipated and unsolicited hug.
