As a newlywed (of almost one year), the question of “So when are you going to have kids?” comes up fairly often. Considering the fact that I come from a big family, one might expect that I want to have lots of kids. This is not the case. The truth is being a parent scares me. I’m a selfish individual. I openly admit it. That doesn’t mean I never want to have kids, but I definitely don’t feel prepared to be a mother.
I also know that God does not always wait until you’re “ready.” I have known many women in my life who weren’t ready for the first, second, third, etc. child. But every one that I can think of is a great mother, a wonderful woman whom God has blessed.
So, today–Mother’s Day–I find myself thinking about the possibility of having children someday. I’m not as opposed to the idea as I used to be. I might even be excited about it someday. I mean, kids can be cute, right?
