Family?

I am super excited. Some friends that have been trying for awhile to get pregnant are NOW pregnant! How exciting! I am so happy for them. I must admit my heart sinks everytime I hear that someone else is pregnant not because I am not happy for them because I truly am but rather because Im not at that phase in my life yet. But I did realize something the other day driving home from camp....in my own way I do have my own children. Ok so I have to explain a little. The camp counselors are almost young enough to be my children....mind you I would have been pretty young when I had them...but they mean a lot to me. Some of them I've known since they were little. Some of them were my campers and now they are camp counselors. The reality is I am glad that they are in my life and I care deeply about them. I dont want to see them hurting or in pain. Maybe for now that is my mission on this earth to be a caring adult/mentor in someone else's life until Mr.Right comes into my life!

  1. Kathy did not have Ben until she was 44. We were convinced that we would never be able to have children;then, what-ya-know. No scientific intervention of any kind; it just happened (well Kathy and I obviously did our parts, but since for six years of marriage our attempts were disappointments, it did seem that God had some saying in the timing.). Anyway, keep the faith.
