Are you in "The Middle Place"?
I just read the book “The Middle Place” – by Kelly Corrigan. The author finds herself in that place where “parenthood and childhood overlap”. She is a married adult with children, who is also worrying and caring for aging parents. She is battling cancer as is her father.
Have you found yourself in that middle place, are you there now? How do you prioritize between yourself, your children, and your parents? Do you embrace this stage in life or despise it? If you have children, do you expect them one day to care for you?
