Okay so DH often tells me how he thanks the Lord for not making him a woman. Apparently he doesn't want to have to go through monthly cycles, EWCM, the pain of childbirth, etc. But I often thank the Lord that I AM a woman. Nothing compares to carrying a baby inside you for 9 months... we pay a small price to grow a life inside us, IMO. And besides I don't want to be a man... it's just too much responsibility (being the spiritual leader of the home)!

What about you, what do you think?
Do you praise the Lord that you were born a woman? Why or why not?
Do you believe or shy away from all the responsibility (like I do) placed on men?

I do feel so very blessed to be a woman. We were watching some special on tv once about how it might eventually be possible for a man to carry a baby (similar to surrogacy) and I told Matt that there was no way I would be at all willing to give up the ability to carry a child.

At the same time, I would NEVER want the responsibilities of being a man either. I was a single mom for a while and I felt under so much pressure. There is no way I want that kind of weight on my shoulders all of the time.

I often ask DH the opposite question: Don't you wish you were a woman just for one second so you could feel what it is like to carry a child? And DH always responds NO! LOL I think watching me give birth scared him!

I am so very thankful to be a woman and to have carried my daughter and felt her move inside me and to be able to nourish her...
