Thankful to be a man [BabyDaddy Day 24]

Over the last few months, I've seen things I can't unsee. I've seen my wife's body do unimaginable things. The joy of birth is forever tainted by the reality of birth. 

I love women, but let me saying this primarily concerning the issue of birth...

I AM VERY THANKFUL TO BE A MAN.

Thank you Jesus. I'm serious. THANK YOU JESUS. Thank YOU for not letting me give birth. 

It's just a simple matter of measurement. The goal is to get a big object out of a small opening. And when that doesn't work, drugs are introduced to make it happen more forcefully. This is a recipe for pain. When it doesn't work, major surgery begins.

I saw the inside of my wife's body during the c-section surgery. I saw her torso cut open and layers of tissue and muscles pulled to the side. The doctors told me not to look, but I looked and I couldn't help but think...

THANK YOU JESUS.

I AM VERY THANKFUL TO BE A MAN. 

Ladies, I'm sorry. Seriously. Are you okay?
