Frog wrote:I personally feel sacrifice is an old an archaic thing.
1. the offering of animal, plant, or human life or of some material possession to a deity, as in propitiation or homage.
2. the person, animal, or thing so offered.
3. the surrender or destruction of something prized or desirable for the sake of something considered as having a higher or more pressing claim.
4. the thing so surrendered or devoted.

Sacrifice to me is giving up your time, attention and energy to a need other than your own.
