Balance 

Just when I feel like I have all aspects of life fairly balanced, the teeter-taughter becomes heavier on one side, and things  are out of whack.  If I'm on top of the house chores, then my soul is frustrated with always cleaning. If I give the kids 100% of my attention all day, then the …
