Tough Job, But Someone Has To Do It

It is 10:30pm. My husband's meeting has just ended and he is leaving for home. It is a two and a half hour drive. It will be at least 1am when he arrives home. He has a meeting in the office early in the morning. Sigh....

He is going to be completely drained for our son's visit. I need to pray hard for strength for him, not only for tomorrow, but for the rest of this week. I am so grateful he is on retreat for two days next week.

Sometimes the demands of this job are completely ridiculous. Something has to change. Deciding what that is constitutes the reason for the retreat. I am grateful for our wise bishop who sees the need for change in several job descriptions to prevent burn out among the diocesan staff. We pray he is including himself in these stress relieving changes.
