In my current phase of life, I'm constantly reminded of pregnancy and babies. My most recent response to this topic is: "I currently have no desire to have kids but I'll re-evaluate this at age 32 (two more years...yikes!). I just don't want to be 60 years old with kids still in my house." If you are close to me, you've heard me say this many times. Periodically, the Lord reminds me that I'm still not ready for this adventure...will I ever be? Who knows?!
The last few days, I've been in Nebraska with my mom visiting my sisters, brother-in-law, and these little ones:

I had SO MUCH FUN hanging out with these little ones....seeing how their personalities have developed. They are such good kids! My sisters have done an amazing job raising them. Despite all of the positive things about having kids, I just don't desire the responsibility of this HUGE task. I used to think it's laziness but now I'm seeing it's not...I just desire other things. I want to be able to hang out with my husband and dogs, go on vacations, go out to eat, hang out with friends, etc. I know these things can be done with kids but we all know that those things are limited and are different with kids in the picture.
My point: visiting my awesome family this weekend has simply reminded me that I'm not ready for this committment any time soon or maybe ever. BUT, I might be ready for this life:
