Is it just me or does it feel like there seems to be a rise in the divorce & pregnancies that have been announced lately? I feel like every time I get on Facebook or read a blog someone is either letting us know they are expecting or they are no longer married. I guess it’s just the season of life we are in. Most of the people my age got married 5-10 years ago so babies & divorces are bound to start happening.
When I hear of the divorces I immediately think, “How sad!” But I then realize that although it’s sad for me to hear of that news, I can’t image what they are going through. I’m not sure I’d know what to do if that ever came about in our marriage. I just can’t even foresee it, though, I don’t think many of my friends foresaw it either. After my immediate reaction, I always begin to pray for those friends. I don’t pray for them out of pity, I pray for them so they find peace in a hard situation. That they can find love again, a real and lasting love. I’ve seen many people come from a divorce and end up finding their true love later.
When I hear of the pregnancies I immediately think, “Holy moley there are loads of pregnant ladies!” And then I realize that I’m one of those pregnant ones! I get a bit nervous when I think of the idea of 3 kiddos, but it will all be fine. I just thank my lucky stars that the boys will be older and mostly self sufficient unlike last go around. Cohen & Lucas are 15 months apart, so you can image the chaos that was my house or those first 6-12 months of transition. In the end, life will go on, and I’ll be a happy Momma to 3 littles.
Am I the only one seeing this trend in divorce and pregnancy??
