Let Me Not Complain

Let me not complain

For this baby growing inside me is a blessing.

Let me not complain

For each day I grow bigger and bigger is another day closer to holding her in my arms.

Let me not complain

For my back aches and sleepless nights are a beautiful sacrifice.

Let me not complain

For each stretch mark is a mark of honor.

Let me not complain

For some women will never know the movement of a baby in her womb.

Let me not complain

For some women will never see their babies full term.

Let me not complain

For some women can’t conceive.

Let me not complain

For this may be the last time I am able to carry a baby.

Let me not complain

For some women would give anything to have an achy back, stretch marks, sleepless nights, extra weight, heart burn, and little odd movements.

Let me not complain.

Let me not complain.

let me not complain.

 

 

Let us never forget our privilege.  If you ever catch me complaining about my pregnancy, you have permission to rebuke me.
