This past week I traveled to Boston for work. It marked the longest time (6 nights) I have been away from Eli since his birth. I learned that my life at this point really isn't worth it unless I am with my family. I enjoyed my time away but I appreciate and love the precious time I have to spend with my son so much more than any time away would ever give me. I pray that I will always remember the longing I feel when not with Eli when I am cursing away the day or exhausted from running around chasing him all day. That is life. Those days are always worth it. He is always worth it to me.
