May showers bring May flowers and Mother’s Day!

 

Roses

 

May brings beautiful things along with the beautiful thoughts of my mother,

my mother-in-law, grandmothers,

and all other incredible mother figures in my life.

Although, not being a mother myself,

I learned from my mother that it was the sweetest job

that any woman may receive the calling to do.

Not being fortunate enough to have my own children due

to the extreme illness for me,

I craved this position in life horribly.

I think God knew from the start that I would not have my own children,

and He took me away from my desire to become a veterinarian

and put me into education so that I could work with kids.

HE probably figured that this would ease the pain of being a childless woman.

Sometimes being a teacher helped fill the anguish in my heart and most days it did not.

My husband and I wanted a child and did not give up on the wish

of becoming parents until the bitter end.

After seeing doctors, seeking medical advice, the tears,

and praying. a. lot.

I eventually gave up on the thoughts of having my own

and just loved the ones that I borrowed throughout the day.

I have gotten to spend time with many friends’ children

and experience childbirth through a beautiful friend and daughter-like woman.

My point is not to have self-pity of my own situation,

but it is to say…

No matter who that mother figure is for you in your life –

your mom, grandmother, aunt, sister, friend or someone

entirely different-

they are treasures!

These women have had a great influence on me.

I think that many of my traits, habits, likes and dislikes

 can be attributed to those wonderful mom and grandmother influences.

My sense of humor, my sense of motherhood, my love of animals, horses, roping,

my love of my home, decorating,

and so much more come from the influences

and

traditions that I have been apart of.

Thank you to my mother for all of her Love,

wise and careful instruction.

Wishing she was here to celebrate Mother’s Day!

 

Mom

…And

thank you to all the other mother influences that have helped me

become who I am.

Happy Mother’s Day to All mothers.
