With my head on a bit straighter and for the most part my soul caught up with my body, ready to remind myself when I need rest, ready to work hard and work wisely, ready for what comes up in the next phone call...
Snap. First hours back in the saddle and we are into a couple of gut wrenching situations a few different families are going through.
It was a good break, and it's really good to be back at work, and it's really, really good that I can say that with honesty. I'm going to need that as we head into Advent here this weekend. It always seems like Advent and Christmas take the life right out of me, and I have come to brace myself for the season, rather than to embrace the season, and I wish that were different.
However, maybe with this rest recently behind me, I can enter into Advent with a little more, um, Hope.
We shall see.
Anyway, we are back at it.
Many reply emails shall be forthcoming.
Peace to your souls too.
