Besides, kids are great. A challenge, yes, but a blessing (see, for instance, Psalm 127:3-5). It’s interesting to read the late-in-life reflections of those who have chosen career over family. They often draw their satisfaction from the impact they had on a few key lives. An architecture professor savors the work of one of his star pupils, a lawyer remembers an innocent prisoner he helped free, a stock broker recalls the kid who went to an expensive school because the father’s investment portfolio was fruitful.
But what about cutting to the chase and impacting key lives directly from their moment of conception? Now, that’s a career move.
Hubby and I are among those who “occupy ground to the right” of Granny and the author of the article; nevertheless, we share much of the sentiment expressed.
