As employees, we usually don’t take a pause just to keep up with our deadlines. In exchange we forget to give time to the people we love and things we love to do. We forget ourselves because of work.
On facebook, a employer had a heart warming reminder for all employees which had a beautiful message.

I hired you in the hope that you can be a good provider to your family, not to take you away from them, to give you additional skills not take your parental skills away from your kids, to make you a better person not just for the company but all the more for your family.
So when the time comes that you will have to choose between attending your sons and daughters’ school activities over a client’s needs, if you have to choose between your wife or your husband’s needs over mine as your boss, —please choose them.
You see, not all employers will understand some of my principles in leadership but I would rather close this company than seeing you miss your kids school activities because you have to be in a meeting, or seeing you getting broken because of your unfixed misunderstanding with your husband or wife. They are your home first before the company gave you a second home, they’re your family before you became mine.
I have always believed that a person who’s happy at home is also happy at work.
So, Go home. Be home.
Your work can wait. I can wait.
Your family, the home that you built, once broken, will never be the same again. You will never be the same again.
What a very inspiring message to have. Everyday we spend our time at work. Working to the best that we ca. Are we also working to be the best family member we could be? We are working for our families to provide for their everyday needs but sometimes we are they only ones they need.
