something you have to offer

Here we are at the beginning of a strange week, a work week during which--at least in many office buildings--not a lot of work will get done.

Final holiday shopping, business holiday gatherings, packing to travel, cleaning the house for visitors, and the unfolding of a monumental electoral college vote--a lot of people are doing a lot of extra things all at the same time.

As a leader, who can you offer space and understanding to this week? As a person who simply cares about other people, who can you offer space and understanding to this week?

What are the few things that absolutely have to get done this week, really? And can you offer grace for all the rest?

As you are remembering that we're all a bit more stretched than our usual stretched, I love you. And you are not alone.
