Thank you for this, Shaunta. I need to imagine who my Max is without my grandchildren, who are a huge part of my days now but will be moving away soon. My only plan was to throw myself even deeper into my (day) work, which is already too consuming. Not at good plan. Not a healthy plan. Who is my Max without the kids and without the work drug?
