I went to Starbucks on my break. There was a lady in front of me who commented that her daughter was having a bad day so she was there to get her a tea before taking the daughter her spare car keys. I said that she’s very lucky to have a Mom like her.
Lady: No, I’m lucky I get to do this for her. There are so many people out there who don’t get to do this. Some don’t have kids or their kids are in a bad place. My friend just got back from visiting her son in prison.
Me: I’m one of those who can’t have kids.
Lady: Are you 100% sure about that? Just because some doctor said you’re infertile doesn’t mean that God doesn’t have a plan for you.
Me: True. I’ve been through multiple IUIs and IVF with no success.
Lady: God knows best and He knows what He’s doing with your life. Maybe He’s got your family figured out and it will happen in a few years. I was 42 when I had my last child (the lady couldn’t have been much older than I am!). There are plenty of women having babies into their late 40’s!
Me: I agree. Kelly Preston and Halle Berry are having babies late in life!
She gave me a hug and with this conversation, HOPE. All in a brief moment of time.Jeremiah 29:11, NIV: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
