The last 3 months have been busy.
Almost too busy, but the problem…
…I have is I like it that way.
Travel, full schedule, more travel, more in the schedule, more travel…and so on.
Busy fall, but I got this.
I always do.
Until my 3 year old asked the same question twice in one week when I was putting him to bed:
“Daddy, are you leaving tomorrow?”
That will wreck you.
Because he wasn’t asking if I was going to work, I do that every day.
What he was really asking was whether I would be there the next evening to tussle, play tag, hiding-seek, read books, and finally put him to bed.
He was asking whether I was leaving for the airport again tomorrow to return in a couple days.
Fortunately both times the answer was yes, I’ll be here but the point was well received: I was pushing the limits with my schedule.
So my encouragement to you is three-fold:
1. Love on your loved ones when you can.
2. Be thankful you have loved ones.
3. Being gone or busy doesn’t make you a bad person, but know when enough is enough.
Question: Have you ever been brought back to reality like this by your kids?
