LDs, this month, I'm going to try my hand at the ICLW. It's the International Comment Leaving Week.
Good Lord, I have no idea how to introduce myself. I could do a numbers post a la Mrs Gamgee. But I'm not that good with numbers.
I could randomly spew out words. Course, I normally seem to do that.
I look at the list of ICLW participants, and I noticed something.
I'm not a mother, nor do I want to be. At one point, we did, but I'm too selfish with myself and Mr Realist; he feels the same. And most of the peeps are about being a mom or infertility or loss or TTC. I feel like I've stumbled into an alternate universe, and at some point, someone's going to turn and point and "Shun the non-believer!" I've only run across one...two... a total of nine blogs who's description doesn't say anything about children from start to finish.
That's nine out of one hundred and seventy-four. Six percent, LDs. I feel way out of place. I don't know if I can comment about miscarriages or infertility, pregnancy or loss, since I have experienced none of these things. If you're of the other 94% that come here, please don't take this post the wrong way. I pray for everyone who wants children and can't have them. I pray for those trying to adopt. I pray that pregnancies go well and stay sticky and you have a beautiful baby at the end of all the prayers and tests and drugs and heartbreak.
So, for my first month ICLWing, I'm going to hit the ones that I would feel less like an outsider. Bear with me, LDs. I think I'll do an intro post next. Everyone is welcome.
Heepwah, and be safe out there.
