I took care of my younger sister and both my parents in ways that took my time, my energy and sometimes my spirit.. it was easily the most enriching experience of my life. My boy from the time he was 8 to 16 was often there with me and for me and I believe he was taught caring and empathy and concern for others in ways that are too often not seen in today's family. There is something to be learned from the lore and history of each of us and old days are a great time to pass that on to young days.
If I had to do it all over again I would in a heartbeat~
