the end in mind.


on the first of three days

of parent-teacher conferences

at the end of just our second family meeting

one of us

(names are unimportant)

closed the conference

with a friendly goodbye –

“have a great weekend!”

only to

glance up


it was actually

tuesday at 10:02am.

almost there….

 “begin with the end in mind.”

  1. One of the many great things about being retired is that I no longer have that ‘waiting for the weekend’ feeling. (Mind you, I worked shifts as an EMT or for the police for most of my life, usually only getting one weekend off in each month.)
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. They are either ahead of themselves or they are behind of themselves, either way they have misplaced themselves … a flight to Western Australia and back might readjust their time settings!!

  3. I get it. Same page. Four year old Elijah will be with grandma and grandpa every day and night next week. Should be an “experience” each day. By mid-morning we’ll feel like it’s bedtime.

  4. It’s so neat how you use our “human” moments to share with always the perfect quote and pic! Have a great weekend, Beth! (I had to,…because I’m usually the one slipping it up or saying, “I love you!” oops! Maybe I don’t? Well, I do,. But not in THAT way) 🤍
