Being a mother can mean many things. For me, being a mother means caring for my three Yorkie babies. After many years of infertility treatments (and the emotional ups and downs), I’ve come to terms with the fact that it’s not human babies for me, rather it’s canine babies…three of them!
Some people tell me that canine babies are more work than human babies. I personally don’t believe it, although if it’s true, then I’d rock being a mom to children. Yes, dogs are work, but most of their training takes place at a young age. Human babies need training their whole lives! Children are continually learning from their parents, therefore, a parent’s job never ends!! Even after they become adults and leave the house, there is still training and learning taking place.
I know I am missing a part of life that many women get to experience, but God’s plan was different for me. It hasn’t always been this easy for me to face that fact, but time heals all wounds. The part that still bothers me has to do with aging. Who will take care of me (and my husband) when we age? As people age, the roles switch and children begin taking care of their parents. We all know that dogs love unconditionally but they are not physically capable of caring for humans. Again, God has a plan and I can’t worry about the future.
For those of you who are mothers in any way, I want to wish you a Mother’s Day full of love, laughter, and relaxation!!! Most of all, I hope you feel appreciated every day of the year! Thanks for all you do!
