Well, I didn't completely skip work. I worked from home with laptop and cell phone and actually made it to the office for a few hours late in the day. But this morning we had snow. I know, I know... you northerners don't see what the big deal is. You think it's ridiculous that our schools shut down and everyone raids all the milk, bread, & eggs at the local grocery when we see a couple of flakes. Maybe it is ridiculous. But we don't usually get more than one or two snows a year... and you should see the looks on my childrens' faces when we do. It's like Christmas to them.
Someday when I'm laying on my deathbed, I won't wish that I spent more hours at the office. But I'll treasure the memories of being with those I love. There are a lot of real estate agents out there... but my children have only one daddy. Yes, I'm a hard worker. Yes, I often have to sacrifice time that should belong to them just so I can put a deal together and get paid in order to provide for my family. But sometimes they need to know that they are the priority. Work is important... very important. But it's not all important. I don't trust a man who thinks otherwise.
Today I played in the snow with my kids. We rode our 4-wheelers. We made snow ice cream. I cooked a big breakfast with eggs, biscuits, & gravy. And the real estate world survived for a few hours without me.
