Have you ever come off of one of those work shifts where you are already in your 30th overtime hour, every impossible scenario that no one thought would ever happen...did, and you were the one in charge?
I just had one of those shifts.
But as I walked away from the tower this morning, all "fires" now under control, with my shoulders drooping just a bit from exhaustion, I pulled off my hard hat with a dirty, gloved hand, turned and saw the sun just starting to begin the day breaking a purple, red and orange dawn across the Texas plains. At that moment, I knew that today was a whole new day and that everything was going to be all right.
Now that...is a feeling of satisfaction.
