HAVE A KID

by

David C. Hughes

If you want to learn the true meaning of life, have a kid.  If you want to see a reflection of yourself in 1080p HD, have a kid.  If you want all your weaknesses exposed, have a kid.  If you want all those weaknesses announced to the world with no hesitation whatsoever, have a kid.  If you want to know to what degree you “get it” (or not), have a kid.  If you want to know what God’s grace and mercy and love and forgiveness is, have a kid.  If you want to learn the difference between selfishness and selflessness, have a kid.  If you want to know what pure joy is, have a kid.  If you want to know what pure hell is, have a kid.  If you want to know the true definition of trust, have a kid.  If you want to realize what Jesus meant when He said “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven,” have a kid.  If you want to roll around on the floor and play Legos and Tinker Toys and Lincoln Logs, have a kid.  If you want to play with dolls without anyone thinking you’re weird, have a kid.  If you want to brush the cobwebs off your imagination and start using it again, have a kid.  If you want to eat a Popsicle without having to sneak one out of the freezer, have a kid.  If you want to watch “Jimmy Neutron” and “Shawn the Sheep” and “The Munsters,” have a kid.  If you want to learn the ins and outs of negotiating like a pro, have a kid.  If you want to revel again in Mother Goose and Fairy Tales and silly songs, have a kid.  If you want to make up silly songs and sing them out loud to an enthusiastic non-judgmental audience, have a kid.  If you want to learn how to pray, have a kid.  If you want to know what heaven is like, have a kid.  If you want to hear God’s voice speak to you right out loud, have a kid.  If you want to experience the true meaning of Christmas with all the trimmings, have a kid.  If you want to see what it’s like to live without any inhibitions, have a kid.  If you want a lesson in tolerance, acceptance, and diversity, have a kid.  If you want to swing on a swing set, play hide-and-seek, and read Dr. Seuss until you can’t get the rhymes out of your head, have a kid.  If you want to laugh like a little girl, even if you’re a guy, have a kid.  If you need a reason to grow up and become responsible, have a kid.  If you want to learn what it’s like to be truly humbled, have a kid.  If you want to go to bed after an all-out tickle fight, have a kid.  If you want to participate in a spit bubble contest, have a kid.  If you want to dress up and go trick-or-treating again, have a kid.  If you want to experience what it’s like to be your parents and gain a completely new respect and love for them, have a kid.  If you want to play in a sandbox again, have a kid.  If you really have a desire to say “Because I’m the Mom,” or “Because I’m the Dad,” have a kid.  If you’re a glutton for the hardest but absolute best job on earth, have a kid.  If you need an excuse to get a prescription for Xanax, have a kid.  If you want to be told you’re the smartest, meanest, best, worst person in the world–all in the same day–have a kid.  If you really want to know how long and how wide and how deep God loves you, have a kid.
