At age 37, I thought it was too late. It wasn't.
The thing I've always liked best about your writing is the fearless honesty. Write more please.
Thank you Bridget. I wish my 37 yo self could read this beautiful piece. But I'll take what I can get! ...Thank you.
Bridget, I know *exactly* what you're feeling now, because I was there. It's Joy. It's the relief that a condemned woman feels when she's granted a reprieve. You have been blessed with the greatest gift that one can be given. Much love to you and your child.
That was some incredibly deep stuff! You bought every lie that the left set out for young women, i.e. career is as fulfilling as motherhood, abortion is just a contraceptive, women need a man like fish need a bicycle, I'm glad my daughter decided not to have kids to lower her carbon footprint, etc. -- the left is sick and sadistic. Thank God you woke up! I will be praying for miracle baby, for a healthy, whole and happy child! In the meantime check out this corny love song from years past "Having my baby" -- I think it and similar songs will give you the peace and calm you seek! Godspeed! https://youtu.be/RDHn1Qbd2A4 https://www.mixcloud.com/genericmaledjs/mostly-70s-cheese-volume-4-quattro-formaggi/
Love you and love this piece - so many women can relate.
Love this...I'm looking forward to reading the continuing journey. Your writing displays earned wisdom and love. Thank you
