Mother’s Day

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?
