“Grow Like a Lobster” talks about planning and preparing for the molts. The idea behind the metaphor is that if we expect tough times to come, we will be better able to prepare for their arrival. Right now, Italy and the world are molting. I’m not sure any of us were prepared for this, but it is happening. Many friends from around the world have reached out to inquire about life here in Florence. I’m blessed to report that we are well and enjoying the extra family time together. What can we learn from difficult times like these? How can you plan and prepare for the future?
