The Arizona Republic has published " Sandwich generation finds stress, satisfaction'" an article written by H.J. Cummins, McClatchy newspapers. I like it, because I believe it is real. It represents many of us who spread our nurturing selves very thinly. We need to give of ourselves to our children, our marriage, a job - and now our parents. This results in stress, but, if the marriage is good and supportive, it can give great satisfaction, as well. If the marriage isn't strong, that is one more stress, but that is for another article, another blog.
