People, not parents, struggle to find the time and energy to do the things they know they should. Anyhow, it struck me that there are some things I can (and will!) blame my children for, cheerfully, and some things that I resolve I will not blame them for.

Kelsey Ramsden | Posted 11.20.2013 | Canada
Kelsey Ramsden

About 1.5 years ago I underwent a 6 hour surgery to remove a few cancer-inflicted organs. I was guaranteed to be a goner prior to that surgery. Before that, I thought I had it all figured out. I took serious pride in the statement "I am so busy." I was productive and important. I was burning the candle at both ends, and society loved me for it. But what did that get me?
