I love kids. Especially young kids (toddlers), but I don’t want ANY….right now.
Still, I have STRUGGLED with this.
Partner that with the conversation I experience almost daily: “Are you married? (Yes). Do you have kids (No). ****Insert confused/shocked/lost puppy/blank stare here****
I know I’m not the first to experience this and I understand that most people don’t mean any harm when asking those questions; However, it’s been on my heart to have a conversation (blog) about this topic. It is so frustrating/challenging and sometimes just downright draining to deal with this as frequently as I do.
Then came the guilt. Thoughts like:
Am I being selfish?
SHOULD we have kids now?
I know there are many young, married couples that are praying for children, but right now that’s not my prayer.– Does that make me a bad person?
Maybe it’s another character building exercise God is walking me through…
