May is here!! May is my favorite month. Where I live, it's the month when the tulips pop, the trees blossom, the leaves form and the lilacs bloom. It's the month when we can get our gardens in. It's the month that starts family picnics! Days are longer and warmer in May, but not too hot.
This year May is extra special because for the first time, I get to celebrate Mothers Day! Being a mother is so special to me. I know there are feminists out there who believe that being a mother isn't fulfilling. When my son stares at me with those big blue baby eyes and studies my face, I can't think of one thing more fulfilling than that! Out of love, my husband and I got married, came together and through the miracle of God's perfect creation, our son was formed in my womb body, soul and spirit. 8 months later, he was born, healthy and vibrant. Now, nearly 6 weeks after his birth, he has grown and developed. Daily, I see changes. Daily, I see how much he's learned and how much I've learned. Daily, my heart grows to love him more and more. If that's not fulfilling, I don't know what is.
That's what gets me confused about these feminists. I don't see how slaving away at a job outside the home just to exists on my own is fulfilling? Granted, there are very fulfilling jobs out there, such as being a doctor or working for a good cause. But still, I don't see how they can be any more fulfilling than bearing and rearing precious children.
OK, now what do you think about corn fuel? It's all the talk now. I saw commercials for it on TV at my in-laws' house.
Also, I ask that you pray for hubby and I. We're hoping to get an outdoor furnace this year. Right now we have an oil furnace and we can't afford to keep the tank filled.
