It’s been awhile since I’ve come over here to share my gratitude and nibbles of abundant deliciousness. In part, because I’ve been so busy consuming. 🙂 My parents rolled in to town (literally since their home is a big RV) on Friday, 9/5, and left first thing this morning. It’s been great having them as neighbors (when they are here, they stay at a lake about 5 minutes from our house).
Jim and I enjoyed sharing our weekend ‘deck time’ with them. We got to celebrate Mom’s birthday. We got to catch up on things (it’s been too long since we were last together in person). We got to reminisce and share stories together.
I also enjoyed the opportunity to take a mid-day break from work every day to enjoy lunch with them. Good practice for finding my way back to some semblance of work-life balance. I had been overindulging in work in a way that was not sustainable – it’s fair to say my folks came to the rescue just in time!
Good to hear from you again…
My experience is that ‘WorkLife Balance’ is one of the greatest challenges for leaders, once they have accomplished ‘WorkLife Integration’ successfully – the more you love what you are doing, the harder.😃
It’s 6:30 am, and I have to tell you that when I woke up this morning, I thought, I haven’t seen anything from Vicki in a while! 🙂 Glad to hear it was for good reason and that they rescued you from your work! Very nice, my friend. Your back yard and deck look GORGEOUS. And the people aren’t bad, either. ;0)
Thanks, Thorben and Maureen, for stopping by with your words of encouragement!
