Some days I like nothing better than holing up in my office so I can think, create and excise items from my to-do list.

Other times I feel profoundly grateful to sit across from another person and hear their story.

Today I had a couple of chances to do the latter.  Both times I heard my friends share openly and honestly about their mistakes, struggles, questions and faith.

I was impressed, humbled and honored to be a part of the conversations.

Not a bad day.
