I've been driving up and down the dreaded I5 corridor to commute an hour each way to a conference this week, and it's put a few things into perspective for me.
- I am so glad commuting is not a normal part of my life. Driving across town, mostly on empty backroads, is so much nicer. I will not complain anymore about how I'm not close enough to church to walk or ride my bike.
- Working long hours outside the home is tough on my family. They've survived these three days, but I've got some catch-up to do now that I'm home.
- Although I LOVE my work and am inspired by the material I just encountered in the training, pulling into my own driveway I was glad to be home and reminded of all I want to do here.
- I really really love being home.
