Blog: Love from Little Hearts

A co-worker told me that he did not want to bring children into the world because it was a messed up place.  I  had kids anyway and here's how it turned out.  Last Sat., I woke up to the sound of heavy breathing and crunching.  My 2 year old daughter was lying above me with a bowl of cereal.  She just wanted to be near me because I have been working a lot lately.  My 7 year old boy asked if I can just work in the grocery store nearby, so that I can come home earlier. My 10 year old son planted on his own the bushes that I bought to please me.  Then, there is my 6 year old daughter who asked, "What will make you happy, Daddy?"  While the world can be a dangerous place, that should not be a reason to deprive oneself of the love that comes from little hearts.

Agree.

That was my first argument against having children as well. More like a flimsy excuse really...

Raulito: I can understand your position. It's daunting because parenting is an immense responsibility - specially the spiritual and moral aspect.
