Was working (another) late evening at the office when wife M called with an invitatino for a date offer. “Want to meet me for pizza at Serious Pie on S. Lake Union?” I am wired to work (luckily, I am also wired to be present for my family) but wisdom kicked in and I realized a few hours more in the office will mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. The result was gourmet pizza, a glass of wine and a great conversation with M on a pleasant Spring evening.
Later, helped daughter L prepare for her Spanish presentation today. She memorized her lines far better than I ever could.
Life — and being married to my best friend and appreciating our kids — is wonderfully good sometimes.
