Recently, I've been dealing a LOT with jealousy and wishing I was at a different stage of my life.
Sometimes I'll think "Wow, God, you've really given me more than I ever deserve, and you've helped me to not be envious of others and what they have." And then, I'll see a young mother holding a baby, with a toddler or two clinging to her skirts, and I'll just about lose it. "God, why can't I just skip the next five years of my life and be stable, married, and have two or three kids? That's all I want right now. Just give me people I can love and who love me, and I'll be happy and do everything You ask."
If anyone has any advice on dealing with this kind of thing, please don't hesitate to share it with me. :)
Peace of Christ be with you always,
