30 Reasons Why EVERYONE Should Want LOTS of Children
1* Their laughs are contagious.
2* It is a really great feeling to be able to stop a child from crying just by being YOU
3* They give you a good excuse to sit and read an afternoon away
4* They give the greatest presents. And OFTEN.
5* They remind you how to look at the world with wonder; things like dew covered grass, the wings of a dragonfly or the shimmer in the eyes of frogs. Things that you forgot to notice when you began to grow up.
6* You can excuse yourself from boring conversation without being obviously rude by going to 'check on them'.
7* They laugh at your jokes-even when no one else does.
8* They love you even with bedhead and morning breath.
9* They are great ice-breakers when meeting new people
10* Missing teeth grins are one of the greatest sights in the world.
11* They teach you what faith is.
12* They are brave enough to wear cowboy ensembles to the grocery store.
13* They don't care or worry about time-or whether there is enough of it.
14* They can make wedgies look cute.
15* They love you fiercely.
16* They force you to become BETTER than what you are
17* They give grown-ups the opportunity to goof off like children without looking like idiots.
18* They say you are pretty when you are wearing your ugly glasses and sporting pimples for the day.
19* They say and do the most hilarious things at the most unusual times. And you can't help but laugh your head off.
20* You end up with plenty of candy in the house around holidays
21* They make you get-well cards when you are sick
22* They are as happy with grilled cheese as they are with Filet Mignon.
23* With children, your life becomes a legacy.
24* They give you flowers!
25* They sit nice and close.
26* They are innately conditioned to think that they can do anything and don't stop to think "What if I fail?"
27* There is nothing so amazing as seeing bits of yourself in another human being.
28* You can send them out to do chicken chores in winter when you really don't want to do them!
29* A sleeping baby pressed against you is more calming and relaxing than any spa treatment imagineable.
30* Every person should want LOTS of children because having children requires selflessness and selflessness is what is sorely lacking in this big, crazy world of ours. The more we die to self, the more we live like God. And that is just what this world needs.
