Think Before You Speak

on May 4, 2014

Let the count down begin!  It’s one week until Mother’s Day, which is one of the most celebrated holidays of the year. Many have made plans, bought gifts and if you wait much longer there will be slim pickings on the greeting cards aisle.  Blog posts are intended for those who follow the blog, however, this post is not for the followers of Baby Please, but I’m hoping  it will reach their friends, family, church members and co-workers.  As we prepare to celebrate Mother’s Day please think of those who desire to have children.  On Mother’s Day think of those who may have had miscarriages, failed fertility treatments or stillborn babies.  On Mother’s Day think of those who are on pins and needles waiting for the adoption to become final and praying that the birth parents don’t change their minds.  On Mother’s Day Think Before You Speak.  Please don’t walk up to women/couples and say things like “what are you waiting on,”  or “you are not getting any younger”.  You don’t know the struggles, heart ache or pain that person has endured.  Let’s stop putting so much pressure on women/couples to have babies and let’s start praying more for them.  As we prepare for Mother’s Day, Class and Family Reunions, Graduations, Father’s Day and all other festivities that will bring us together this summer, please remember to Think Before You Speak. The Struggle Is REAL!!

    Thank you so much for this post! No there isn’t anything wrong with me and yes I do like children. I just haven’t physically given birth.
