The World’s Best Source of Renewable Energy; PARENTS

Powered by salads and requiring little to no down time, these amazingly green energy sources leave virtually no carbon footprint and remain as low-maintenance as most plant life; a little water, food and light and they’ll run for years. Even better, these sustainable powerhouses adapt well to change and are so easy to operate the whole family can do it.

They care deeply, love relentlessly and make a mean macaroni and cheese. They’re the gatekeepers, cheerleaders and motivational speakers, (even if it sounds like nagging, trust me, it’s motivational speaking.) It’s a lifetime position with no pay, but great benefits. It’s a dream come true rife with potential nightmares. It’s exhausting and exhilarating, loud, messy and regularly involves other people’s bodily fluids. It’s also the best thing that has ever happened to most of us.

The adventure begins with a little plus sign and ends when we close our eyes for the last time. Our work is never done and our hope never ends. We are parents.

So, the next time you feel guilty for hitting the drive through instead of serving a home cooked meal, or taking some time for yourself instead jumping every time you’re called, remember this; renewable energy needs time to renew. So do you.
