Milk...just milk

I went to the grocery store today to pick up a gallon of milk.  That's really all we needed.  I left the store with five bags of groceries, a twelve-pack of Pepsi, a bag of potatoes and two gallons of milk.  I obviously have no self-control.

Things to do today:

Smile.  It makes you feel good.

Job offer

I was offered a job today.  It's a great position and would mean more money for us.  If I take this job I have to significantly reduce the amount of time I put into my other jobs.  Job #1, my current position, enables me to work with kids who need someone like me to pay attention to them, like them, listen to them and spend time with them.  If I spend less time in this position there is no doubt the kids will feel the effects.  Job #2, also a current position, gives me a little bit of the same opportunities.  Job #3,  again current, is something I can take a break from until summer.  Job #4, the new offer, would also enable me to work with kids every day...but do these kids need me?  Or, will they be okay with anybody? 

Do I leave the old jobs and take the new one?  Do I turn down the new one and keep the current ones?  What matters most; more money or more quality? 

As I sort this out in my mind during the twenty-four hours I have been given to make a decision, I keep coming back to the same question; where can I do the most good?
