I had so much fun putting this page together. The tags! Guh! Which is short for gushing, you know? I love the color scheme, the subtle blues, tans and browns and that I changed the photos of Jeff hard at work to black and white.
if you get tired, learn to rest, not to quit
don't just be good to others. be good to yourself.
it is not your job to be everything for everyone.
don't be afraid to say no.
In one conversation or another I have to remind Jeff of those words, or words similar. Because he doesn't know how to quit and he works until he's exhausted. He is always so good to others, but rarely takes time for himself. In his job he really does try to be everything for everyone - and it's exhausting, because he hates to say no.
Jeff really is perfect for his job and God has gifted him with the talents to be the general contracter logistics superintendent on jobistes and for his company. He is not a sit-behind-a-desk kind of guy and would never be happy working in an office. He loves the day to day activity of logistics, different every day, with all the moving parts and pieces, plus he’s outside with eyes on the work being done. He comes home with no less than 12,000 - 18,000 steps a day, and many floors climbed. His abilities stretch to every piece of big and little equipment on site, which makes him pretty much invaluable! Unfortunately, Jeff is not getting any younger and the long days in the sun, and the sometimes 6-day work weeks, have him dragging his feet. He gets little down time at work, even to sit in the air conditioned job trailer. Often times his lunch is interrupted with one of those moving pieces, or cancelled altogether. Some days are just so hard! No rest for the weary.
