You’ve always heard that “time flies” and that the older you are the faster it goes. I never believed it or placed much thought in that saying until last week. I took my wife and three kids to the beach for our annual vacation. We were ready to leave the jewelery store and all its cares behind. I caught up on all repairs and custom jobs and my wife had all orders placed, we were ready!! With car packed and kids in tow we left for the beach, YEAH!!!!
The first thing I noticed, when we arrived at our destination, is that we were without cell phones. God works in mysterious ways!! No sooner had we arrived than it was time to pack up and go home! Sure we had spent many hour playing in the sand, swimming in the pool and eating great food, but I was not ready to come home. None the less our lease was up no matter how much I begged for an extra couple of days, I couldn’t get them.
Funny thing about vacation, even when you’re away from work it doesn’t stop comming to you. I left a clean desk on Monday and returned to a war zone that had been hit by a tornado and thrown into a pig pen. It was not pretty. I’m not complaining about work, thank the Lord for it, but I’m not good at playing catch-up. Anyway while all this is happening I noticed the June was all but over. Where did it go? Like they say “time flies….when you’re having fun” and I believe in having fun. My job is great and no matter what, it is a blessing to be here everyday. And the best part is….we’re closed July the 3rd and 4th!!
