Today I am thankful for a job that allows me the flexibility to take off a morning here or an afternoon there to spend time with Maya at school, or to let her move a little slower in the morning if she isn’t feeling well.  In a few weeks, I will get to be Shabbat parent again and volunteer for her school’s Thanksgiving feast (not to mention watch her perform!) Not every workplace would be as understanding of an employee who still wants to be involved in her child’s education despite working full-time. And for that, I am grateful.
