I have friends who have chosen not to have children. I am in agreement, even I had three.
Back as a young adult, I had been adamant that I would not have any children. It was my plight to be independent, build my business, make money and live a simple life once the money flowed in.
NOT. I fell in love at first sight and that changed my world. I was told I couldn’t have children, but all of a sudden, one year into marriage, I was pregnant. I had most wonderful baby. So wonderful, that I was hooked, and afraid of how much I loved him.
I had two more.
There are days my children ask me why I had them. The first one, the answer is easy. It was a surprise. The other two, I will admit, were selfish, because I wanted to love more children. I wanted to spread my love out. I thought it was too much to place the burden of all the love I felt on just one.
I have no regrets. I have no regrets that my life path changed, that it was definitely often a “path less travelled”.
Today I can say, I did so much and love so much. And I will continue to feel that way. Blessed beyond belief!!
