I had/have a choice to make. Uphold a commitment or celebrate my brother's birthday with family. The call came last night. Meet at a restaurant on Sunday afternoon. The answer came out of my mouth: We are in Norwell.
Was that the correct answer? Helping friends is a commitment. Also knowing we won't be able to get to the job site the following three weeks for other family events... All scheduled a week and months before.
Where does being flexible come into the picture? It's interesting. If you have my word or my promise, I guess it's good I won't back down and toss you over. But life is never so neatly planned.
