Several plant start-ups around town sent a couple of dozen phone calls in our direction, as our made-of-gold customers looked for anomalies through the weekend. A few of these unicorn hunts did not materialize even though we spent valuable time away from our families and dealt with interruptions at all hours. True customer service is not void of problems and does not always yield a high five at the end of the day. Being the victor is not as common as you may think and washing feet can be dirty work.
Praise God for families that understand and do their best to support us in this crazy time of year. Praise God for families that suppress their true feelings when the 4th phone call comes at 3AM on a Sunday morning or another family dinner is interrupted.
I absolutely love what I do and praise God every second of the day for it. I would almost do it for free. But that drive and commitment would be extremely difficult to execute without my wife and kids pushing from behind. Choosing to forgive when another basketball story is paused, in order to answer an emergency phone call, is the stuff champions are made of. That crew of mine is the real hero in this story.
