Ladies, do you too feel the pressure?
You know how it goes. Your parents are asking or grand babies, your friends are asking to be bridesmaids, and only thing on your mind is cookies.
Well this past weekend the pressure was thick. For the first time ever my mom asked for grand kids, I through a baby shower for my best friend who is married and on her second baby, and now I feel guilty.
What really pushed me over the guilty ledge was seeing how happy my mom got when interacting with the children at church this past Sunday.
Her face lit up! She was so happy, and although I was glad to see my mom smile, I felt bad knowing that that there was no way for me to give her that kind of joy anytime soon. I have to guy, no prospects, and I can barely take care of myself let alone a child.
Ladies if you’re feeling down or guilty because marriage or kids hasn’t happened for you yet, stop. There’s no blueprint for life and how things are supposed to go, so stop comparing your life to others and focus on you.
Sooner or later you’ll have the husband and the kids, but for now just enjoy the journey to having it all.
