A much needed respite

Last week was a rough one. After being in trial on Monday I was in a funk most of the rest of the week. Things began to pick up a bit on Thursday night leading my hearty band of 3, 4 and 5 year olds through practice. Prepping the fields on Friday night served as a calm reflective meditation on the week.

Then Saturday morning arrive - Game Day! My kids played hard, hustled and put in another great performance for the parents and grandparents in attendance. Yesterday I put in about 13 miles on the road.

It's all too easy to get burned out in this, or any other profession. There are times you just have to step away from it and enjoy life for what it is - a collection of snapshots that creates a story. I feel much better now.
