10 Things a Childless not by Choice Woman Will Never Do
Have you ever thought about it? There are certain things our sisters with children do, that those of us who never had children will never do!
Lately I have been hearing from people who either have children or are not ready to have children yet. Some of the resounding comments include: ‘I didn’t know!’ And ‘I have always wondered about my friend/neighbor/co-worker, but did not know how to ask.’ Well honestly, I would only want someone to ask if they were sincere, and then I don’t know how much I would want to share with people over and over. Which is where, my podcast comes in.
You get all of your questions answered without approaching someone who might not want to talk about it!
Well, I am sure this episode will be an eye-opener and an all around light bulb moment for most listeners!
So! Thank you for coming in and listening to another episode of 21st Century Hannah! I appreciate your taking the time to stop by!
Repeat listeners, childless not by choice or not: thank you. I am truly humbled. First time listeners, childless not by choice or not, thank you! Please come back and join the family!
Everyone: I hope you are telling your friends about the show. Feel free to share the show to your social media followers! I would appreciate that!
S0, 10 Things a Childless not by Choice Woman Will Never Do. (this is by no means an exhaustive list):
A childless not by choice woman will never go through the ‘dreaded labor’ her sisters with children will go through and complain about. But she is just as strong as her sisters with children.
A childless not by choice woman will never watch her baby make a face when he or she tastes a food for the first time.
A childless not by choice woman will never watch her baby walk for the first time.
A childless not by choice woman will never stay up all night with a colicky baby. But she will choose not to stay up all night grieving that fact.
A childless not by choice woman will never stare into a crib in awe and wonder at a being she co-created. But she will pray for her nieces and nephews as they make their way into the world.
A childless not by choice woman will never get to correct a toddler who told her ‘no!’, shake her head at a teenager who thinks he or she knows it all, or feel the sting of disappointment from a child who made a bad decision. But she will make herself available to lend an ear to her sister or brother for those moments.
A childless not by choice woman will never feel the pride of watching her child graduate kindergarten, middle school, high school and college. But she will feel the pride in knowing she was there to help get them to that moment.
A childless not by choice woman will never feel comfortable sitting with a group of women who are chatting about their children, no matter how she may seem on the outside. But she will continue to become strong enough to do it if she must.
A childless not by choice woman will always have a little empty space in her heart. But she will be sure to fill that space with peace, joy, love, and relevance.
A childless not by choice woman has a choice to make: Live a life of bitterness and sadness, or choose to do the best with the cards that have been dealt. I know you can do it!
