This week, we heard that one of the Mhinisteir’s clergy colleague’s wife is terminally ill. I was very disappointed and disturbed that we didn’t know anything about it until the Mhinisteir did a courtesy phone call. Have we all become so self obsessed that we no longer know what is happening right at our door step??
Again this week, we heard that two of our young friends are going to be first time parents! What fabulous news!
Unfortunately, it was the good news that tipped me over. I was genuinely happy for our young friends but a little sad that I never got the opportunity to taste motherhood. Friends our age are already grandparents so I don’t know where this ugly thought came from.
