So, if you read my previous post about my new job in Charleston, you know that I’m living back and forth between here and Greenville, SC (about a 3 hour drive). Thus, on evenings like this, I’m away from my wife and daughter and feeling a bit out of sorts. No matter how much I am away from them, it never gets any easier.
I was talking with a new friend and co-worker today about this topic (thanks for the talk, Jim): How do you behave when you’re away from your family? Do you live it up like you’re a teenager again… or do you become reclusive and shelter yourself? I tend to get kind of quiet… I read more… I skip meals because I hate going to restaurants by myself. I really don’t like life out of a suitcase, but this new job means so much to me that I will motor on as long as I have to; my family will be able to join for good as soon as God allows.
So, I throw that question out to you… Who/how are you when you’re away from your family or they are away from you?
