Am I a little excited? Why yes! I had a fantastic visit at Google’s Mountain View campus and the San Francisco office the next day. Google knows how to treat parents well and offer an amazing day. What did I notice?
- A variety of well-designed work spaces
- Basic needs, such as food, met. Also, conveniences to make daily life easier, such as access to medical, child care, dry cleaning, gym, etc.
- Smart people willing to engage conversations on all kinds of topics
- A welcoming environment
- Empowered employees
A time of reflection and renewal – a good time to revitalize this blog!
With child #2 almost done with college and hopefully launching into the world, we look back and celebrate. We also look forward to new opportunities. New opportunities to serve others, to build up others, to renew others. Onward.
This poor blog is ignored more than it should be – perhaps because I enjoy the short updates and sharing available through twitter. So patience, or, catch up with me on twitter!
So I feel guilty – I really have been ignoring the blog. Hopefully this spring I can get back on track with the writing and blog posts!
