…sadly this is how it can often feel just because we have no kids.

I’m sure people don’t mean it but I often find when around others who have families, there’s so much talk about their child did this or tha, or it was nice to go here or there and do such and such with the kids, that’s it can sometimes be very hard to feel at ease.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect other to stop talking about their kids when I’m around, that would be ridiculous, and I’d find that even more uncomfortable. However in saying that, there are definitely some situations, and some people who seem to be oblivious to other people – yes, those I’m talking about know nothing about the reasons why we’ve not had any kids, nor should they have to.

Don’t get me wrong I love kids, and am always delighted when I hear of family and friends when I hear they are expecting a child. I love kids and would have been delighted had we ever been privileged to have any, however for reasons I’m not going to get into, we have never  had any kids.

I just pray that those of you who have children truly appreciate and love them, because you are so lucky, there are many of us who would have loved to have children but have for one reason or another not had any. If you have children and are estranged from them, please, I urge you try and rebuild those bridges and pick up a phone and give them a call today, say a pray for them as God will always listen to your prayers and will answer them in some way at some time.

God loves us all, because we are all His children – Therefore we must appreciate and love our children, just as God loves us.

With every breath with every salt
From what it seem to the deepest part
I offer all that I?ve come to be
To know your love fathering me

Father you’re all I need
My souls sufficiency
My strength when I am weak
The love that carries me
You arms enfold me
Till I am only
A child of God

With every step on this journey’s walk
And wisdom songs
But the soul is sad
I give my self unreservedly
To know your love fathering

Father you’re all I need
My souls sufficiency
My strength when I am weak
The love that carries me
You arms enfold me till I am only
A child of God

Do you have any brothers or sisters?

If you have, do you get on with them? Did you get on well with them when you were kids?

I don’t have any brothers or sisters, I’m an only child, so I obviously don’t know what it’s like to have brothers or sisters to fight with, play with and love. I know when I was much younger I often wished I had a brother or sister but that was probably more because all my friends had brothers or sisters so I was “different” from everyone else. Now as I’ve got older and thought about brothers or sisters, I’ve wished I had a brother or sister so I had someone to confide in, someone to talk to that wasn’t part of my everyday life.

I also feel at times that I’m missing on out on something else, and that’s the possibility to be an aunt to anyone – I have no brothers or sisters so there’s no chance of that from my side of the family and from my husband’s side that is not possible either as his sister died a number of years ago.

Anyone else out there an only child having the same thoughts? I’d love to hear your thoughts about brothers and sisters.

For those of you with brothers or sisters, you are so lucky in many ways, you may argue and fight with them, you may be very different people living very different lives, but you’re still family and as such I’m sure you all still love one another, even if just a tiny wee bit!

1 Timothy 5:5 (NIV)

If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

The love between you and your brothers and sisters must be everlasting,because they are your family!
