"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!"
- Lilian G. Katz, Phd.
It has been an interesting journey so far. I woke up recently, and the problem with waking up is that you can actually see what needs to be done in your life. There is a lot of clean up from being depressed, and the mess is huge. I am working to get caught up on my internship, school in general, and life things. The boys were sick this weekend, which makes it a more interesting balance. It would be easier if they would give me space, but there is a constant monitoring involved with taking care of them that I thought would lessen as they got older. I can do this, but I need to make some better conscious choices.
