This is an article I came across today on the MSN home page. While the author is a little more blunt & harsh than I would be, I completely relate to her grievances. She explains some of the feelings that I usually supress in order to avoid offending people. Please take a minute to read the article & then come back to my blog for comments.

Don't get me wrong - I don't mind when friends & family ask me when I plan to have a baby. Granted, it does get a little annoying, but I respect that they are curious about my life plans. However, when the random church member or distant acquaintance from 10 years ago asks what I consider to be a very personal question, it gets to me. Please don't get me wrong - if you are a friend of mine or a family member, you are more than welcome to ask about our family plans. But if you are a complete stranger, or anyone with whom I do not come in contact on a regular basis, it's really none of your business.
