What gives with this? It is like they all have to prove themselves with the 1950s birthing of children. That’s nice. There’s a sale of baby stuff at Target, but everyone has to do this == according to them.
Sorry but your version of God’s will is not mine. It is a box that is worse than drudgery. Trust me, like why do these unknown to everyone else outside the Catholic superstar world people have to prove themselves to themselves?
That’s what everyone else wants to know. I was a writer long before you were born and showed up. I practiced my faith long before you humped your hub and got down and dirty and started pumping them out to prove your worth to others.
Sounds to me like a reproductive version of serious Obsessive Compulsive Disorder!
Quite frankly, no one cares. We still may or may not adopt. We have a house now. We may add another bedroom to adopt more than one.
But that is none of your DAMN BIZ IF WE DO OR DON’T. EXACTLY. But why aren’t you doing it?
I almost do care why you are not doing so. You are not going the extra extra mile to seriously validate thyself.
But remember the Catholic world as a whole will nod and well, the rest of the world will move on.
My version is this: a 51 year old that is in no way bitter. I am thankful for what I got in the life cards of things: no mortgage, a loving husband and more free land out west. And oh yeah being as old as I am I have the common sense not to feel bad about what God wanted for me. And I know I am not naive and stupid and not in debt.
In other words, I can say mine mine mine now. I said “MINE”. Not YOURS. Quite frankly, don’t touch anything of MINE.
We said, don’t go near our property boundary or we can call the deputy.
Gee, that would be fun to prove ourselves.
Nah, Big deal. Big fat hairy deal. God still loves me.
And being it is lunchtime I know one thing: a leftover cold rib eaten at my desk in my florida swimsuit while writing is way better than having a “proper lunch to prove myself” to a God who already loves me. I don’t have to pump out 10 kids to suck up to a God who already loves me.
Right? But some of them still will never get that until they are old ladies. They will never get that until they are poor old ladies who have never worked at day in their lives due to the excuse they had all these Catholic trophy kids they had trouble paying for over the years.
Tell ya what: we who have worked are not going to pay for them.
