No, this is not a post about baby goats. It is a post of how amazed I am at how many of my friends have children. I have come to realize this via Facebook. Otherwise I really wouldn’t have a clue. Literally every day I see that one of my friends has posted photos of their kids. There are a few friends who have multiple children. There were a couple times I was talking on the phone with a friend who has three children under the age of 5 and thatwas some amazing birth control. (Just to be clear, that’s a joke. Get it? Ha ha?) On a serious note, all the way through college, I wanted to get married and have children so much it hurt. (Only a mild exaggeration.) While it wasn’t all I wanted, I had hopes of leaving college with a BA and an MRS. degree. (Hah! Another joke!) Well, that didn’t happen. What’s neat is that while I still desire to get married and would like to have kids one day (and/or adopt) it is not something I pine away for. Some of my times of loneliness have been intense, but all in all, I am kinda glad that I don’t have children. My mom had me when she was 21 (a week shy of 22) and when I think about how if I had done the same I would have a 7 year old right now it makes me think, “That would be crazy!” Yes, if that had happened, I wouldn’t be saying the same thing but don’t ruin my point! One thing I can say, I feel more equipped to have children now than I did 7 years ago. And I have a feeling I will feel more equipped a few years from now. So while God is the only one who knows what the future holds, I think I am finally content with waiting for that time of life. And that, my friends, is no small miracle.
