This article in today's New York Times, however, says that clergy are especially in need.
Members of the clergy now suffer from obesity, hypertension and depression at rates higher than most Americans. In the last decade, their use of antidepressants has risen, while their life expectancy has fallen. Many would change jobs if they could.It's true. I know so many of my colleagues and friends who have a hard time separating work from life.
But "many would change jobs if they could"?
I might be tired out and I might be ready for the vacation that is coming up next week, but I do love my job and all that it entails.

Either way, I'm headed out on a little family roadtrip soon. I'm sure that it will be interesting, to say the least, and perhaps not restful at all. I am hoping for a lot of fun, though!
I'll let ya know how it goes!
