Lately, by the time 2:00 rolls around each afternoon, I find myself exhausted and my mind completely shot. I somehow manage to finish my workday and drive home in a daze. Usually I keep my cell phone in my purse, enjoying a few moments of solitude sandwiched between talking all day to my customers and talking, singing, and sometimes negotiating with my kids. By the time I pull down Norma's street, however, I get a second wind and become excited to again put on my "mom hat" and hang with my favorite guys. These are the sweetest faces, and although I feel like they are sucking the life and energy from me, they are the best people in my life. I have found it so interesting how individuals who have no life experience can teach an adult more about themselves than colleagues, friends, and mentors. Their laughs, smiles, and exuberance dwarfs and humbles me, causing me to reassess my strengths and weaknesses every day. It is then that I realize that we are taking this journey of life together.
