Here is another article from the Work & Family site at BellaOnline.com.
*Taking Good Things for Granted*
Many of us do take the good things in our lives for granted, our mate; our children, our home, the list goes on. Most of us don't stop to think "what would happen if I lost this or that." We only think of what we have (or had), when it is gone or simply diminished.

Please visit the forum, see our latest post below, perhaps you have an answer:
|Just wondering how others take care of themselves while balancing work and family. I worked and completed my undergraduate degree while pregnant and then single parenting and then moved to the other side of the country to complete a graduate degree while still working and parenting. Now I am a practicing counselor, writer, college teacher and political leader in my town while still parenting and I think the thing that goes by the wayside the most often is self care. I preach it to my clients, but never manage to do it myself because once the weekend comes I have piles of laundry, housework, writing and correcting papers to do before I start all over again.
So, what do others do to take care of themselves?
I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
