Dad’s Overtime Could Be Troubletime for Sons — Dave’s Diary

I’ll be the first to admit I have sacrificed family time for work. I guess I got the habit from my father, the hardest working man in agriculture.  I’m trying to do better by my 4 year old but I do carry a sense of guilt for time lost with my other kids.
