Ministry Matters has a great article about Work / Life Balance (“the amount of time you spend doing your job compared with the amount of time you spend with your family and doing things you enjoy”). Why is it we find it so easy to forget how wonderful the "little" things in life can truly be?

On an afternoon not long ago, Australian CEO and outspoken advocate for work/life balance Nigel Marsh left work early to pick up his young son, Harry, from school. The senior Marsh reports that they played games in the park and then shared a pizza for dinner. When they arrived home, Marsh gave his son a bath, put on his Batman pajamas, and read him a story. As Marsh wished him a good night and started to walk out of his son’s bedroom, Harry said to him, “Dad, this has been the best day of my life, ever.”
