This weekend I’ll be coming home with a little less baggage than I brought.
Visiting your kids might just be less about a vacation away from work than worry.
As a parent, we want to ensure for ourselves in person that they’re doing okay in the most important things. Like seeing that their marriages are solid and loving. Their kids are happy, well adjusted, and kind by nature. That the family business is thriving and providing for their needs. And that they’re engaged in doing good things for the world we live in.
Coming home with resolve in these matters is a unique kind of rest only parents can know and enjoy. The kind of lovely assurance that brings peace to our existence.
So my load home will be a little lighter and my heart will be a little merrier, and isn’t that what vacations are all about?
