It bothers me when someone catches me in a difficult day of motherhood and cheekily asks, "And you want more?" Of course I do! Just because I'm having a trying day doesn't mean I suddenly hate having children and don't want any more. I know at the end of the day when my wee ones have finally fallen asleep that every ounce of stress that occured during the day will disappear as soon as I look at their sleeping, beautiful faces.
I guess it is because we live in a society of negativity. Good news rarely gets noticed, millions are addicted to soap operas, reality shows feed on our desire to see others suffer, people only seem to remember the bad in our leaders, dramas outrank comedies and even out comedies are negative, AND we focus on the negatives in our own lives.
The debt, the bills, the spilled milk, the cracked window, the misbehaving children, the grumpy husband.....We forget about the abundance we have, the freezer full of food, the paycheck coming in each week, the delicious milk we have to drink, the home around us, the hugs and kisses and dandelion bouquets from our children, the man who loves us and most of all Christ Jesus who loves us!
Yes, I want more. Even though I actually hate being pregnant, I do want more. :)
