I cared for both of my parents as they prepared to leave this world and to the end. I don't look at it as a burden, but as their final gift to me. The last chance I had to show them that all they taught me, had done for me and had hoped for me had meant something. That they had loved me and I them. I carry that love in my heart and hopefully share it daily with the family that is growing up with me as part of their elders. So don't assume your needs will be seen as a burden to your kids, regardless the challenges they face, but an opportunity to let them reflect back you all that you have given them. Best wishes.
