The Lessons We Learn From Our Children

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Credit Restoration Consultants

I received an e-mail this morning asking where I have been. Let me tell you it was very nice to realize someone noticed I have not been around much lately. Yes I have been very busy lately. Yes, it is business related. I was knee deep in work again this morning when the phone rang and on the other end was my son. "Mom I just had a car accident"  First of all he is FINE!!!! I of course ran out of the office to make sure. He just got home from St. Louis on Monday for a few weeks. He is entering his senior year at Washington University in St. Louis. It never ceases to amaze me how when push comes to shove I was able to find time and leave the office.

Why am I writing this.......Let's just say it was a bit of an eye opener. Why should I wait till something like this to get out?? I am always touting myself as the glass half full person. Lately I must admit I have not been very good to myself. So...... from now on I will stop eating my lunch at my desk. I will take time to smell the roses. I will remember to get out of the office. Yes it took a little car accident to make me open my eyes again. I am so very grateful nobody was hurt. Now if the car repair fairy could just wave a magic wand and fix the car!!! Although my son is an adult he was instantlyl my baby when I heard his voice on the phone. You know what, he is only home for a few weeks. I am going to make sure I spend as much time with him as possible. For those of you with young children, believe me they grow fast. Enjoy the summer vacation time!!

I am grateful it is Friday and I have the entire week-end to start planning how we can spend as much time together as possible. Opps I wonder if he thinks this is such a great idea....hahahahahah

Happy Friday!!
