Hey y’all! Happy September. Can’t believe August is over already. It just flew by.
I know it’s been a bit since my last post, and for that I am extremely sorry. I’m sprinting trying to keep up with school and life, but I’m doing my best. Hope y’alls week is going fantastically 🙂
Just a quick follow up on my classes…. Problems with American Democracy is going to be hard. Law and Justice is going to be hard. Criminology is going to be hard, but that’s the class I am most excited about. It’s going to be a rough semester, let me tell you folks. But I promise if anything interesting happens, I will tell you. Unfortunately, nothing interesting has happened yet. It’s in that dry, introductory phase still. Yeah, I know… Lame.
Anyways. The Republican Presidential candidates are going to be debating on Sept. 7, Wed. I am actually REALLY excited. I missed the last one (*sigh*), but I don’t plan on missing this one. And you can bet your bottom there will be a post afterwards, so be ready.
Found this really awesome article this afternoon. http://www.catholic.org/hf/family/story.php?id=42620
I would ask that you check it out. The article is about family and how, in this post-modern era, so many woman do not want a husband or children because it hinders their independence, or “freedom to be selfish.” It always makes me kind of sad when I hear my peers (mostly girls) talk about how they don’t want children. Or they don’t believe in marriage; they want to keep their freedom, their independence, their happiness.
But I agree with the author. I want to be married because I want to keep my happiness, I want to stay independent. I don’t think you lose anything when you get married and have children. Sure, things change. But life is about change. What you gain is more important. You gain love, happiness, innocence, knowledge.
I look forward to that time in my life when I find the man I want to spend my entire life with. I look forward to the time when God blesses him and me with children. It makes me all smiley every time I think about it. I hope that someday these women realize that what you gain with marriage and children is more than you could ever lose.
