I have friends who have a lot of children, and I have friends who only have 1 child. I have friends whose children are grown, and I have friends who don't yet have any.
Here is the deal, though.
No one ever wishes that they had less children.
Some are content with the number that they have.
But, let me tell you a secret.
When I talk to older women they often say things like, "I know it was hard when my kids were little, but I wish I would have had another."
I simply say,
"no one ever wishes for less kids".
And this Christmas,
I have become more convinced than ever,
that the best gift we have given our children,
is each other.
