Coming back to work yesterday was tough. After a fantastic weekend of seeing friends and being reminded of what it is like to click with a group of people, coming back to the real world was an adjustment. I came back to an amazing group of people, who I work with and spend an insanely large amount of time with. We work together, we laugh, we cry, we are concerned with what's going on in each other's lives and although it's a different type of click, there is still a click. We learn to read each other's moods and thoughts and know when to push each other into sharing and when it's best to just let it go. We don't hang out after work, we don't have interaction away from this building, but the time that we are here, we click. Looking at these relationships differently between all of us is good. It makes work more tolerable and I know that there are a group of people in my "real" life everyday who would help with whatever is needed. For the first time in a while, when I came to work yesterday, I felt blessed to be in the situation that I am in, surrounded by people who pay attention to what is said when they ask how you are and who care about you. I guess that's what happens when you grow up--new connections are made in places where you spend your time--but it is just as important to recognize and value those friendships.
