This week, I’ve been down in South Pasadena doing a few speaking sessions with the Women’s Connection at the wonderful Holy Family Parish. While I’ve been here, my darling teenager has been under the capable supervision of my mother in law Norma, who lives just a few blocks away from us. Coincidentally, Norma works less than a mile away from Adam’s high school and their work/school hours are nearly identical. So she’s able to take on the driving duties when I’m out of town, which is a major relief for all of us. Honestly, if it weren’t for Norma (and Greg, of course!), I wouldn’t be traveling to the extent that I have been lately. She is also very willing and able to jump in whenever we need her for any type of help. Having Norma on my support team has been a major blessing!
This week, I’m asking the question “Who’s on your support team?” Who can you call when you have a sick child, a late night at the office, or a sudden emergency that requires backup? If you don’t have anyone in mind, can we brainstorm together about how you might assemble a few friends or neighbors who can “be there” when you need extra hands? Let’s talk about it!
