Many people argue that they are too old for more children, and so they choose to not have any more. I hear things like, "I do not want a teenager in the house when I am in my sixties!", "I will be old and retired before they are even married!", or "I am in my forties, I am too old for babies".
Funny thing is though, that these same people do not think they are too old for the workforce. They willingly work into their sixties, or even their seventies. Clearly, they are not too old to work. Most times they are not to old to raise children either. They have simply made a choice.
I am glad we have examples of some Biblical matriarchs that were old, and yet were still thrilled to raise children. Wish there were more like them living near me today. Wouldn't that be wonderful? Love Michelle
