Yesterday afternoon I had one of those short periods of mental distress regarding my capacity to be a good parent. I have a reasonable supply of patience, but it’s certainly not endless. My youngest of six children will turn 16 in about a month and a half. I thought about the coach who says, “We didn’t lose the game, we just ran out of time.” I could become a great parent, but after 38 years I’ve run out of time.
