It’s a relatively new phenomenon. These are the modern-day adults who are being squeezed from both sides: dealing with children and aging parents.
In previous generations, kids tended to grow up more quickly and leave the nest more permanently. In the past, people didn’t live as long. When Social Security began in the 1930s the average life expectancy was about 67 years. Today, many people are living 25-, 30-, 35-years into retirement. All of this is good—but it can make for difficult circumstances for the Sandwich Generation. There are more and more middle-aged adults who are trying to save for their own retirements and are who are still supporting grown kids (or, at least paying college bills); and simultaneously trying to care for their parents.
Are you a part of the sandwich generation right now? Have you ever been? What would you like to share about this season in your life? How has it impacted your walk with Christ? How has God helped you? What do you want to say to someone who is running tired and needs some encouragement right now?
