The most precious prize of all – a child.
You maybe too busy to take notice about things around you . From morning till dawn , your life is like a clockwork routine everyday.
Work consumed the most part of your life and you are like a slave in the new world order.
The world is turning and revolving without stopping and days turns into nights and months into years.
Soon one day you will realize that you are no longer young. You see mothers with cute infants and kids and the realizations hits you .
You think you can have a child when you want because you could have anything you wanted in life through sheer hard work, a big house, an expensive car, a successful career ,an opulent lifestyle and all those rich trappings of life.
Nothings seems to be beyond your abilities.You think you can control your own destiny.
You read and hear stories of those stars who had children in their forties,actress Jane Seymour and model Iman both had children at 44, actress Mimi Rogers was 45, Susan Sarandon 46 and Holly Hunter 47.
What is sometimes not reported is a very high proportion of babies born to women in their 40’s are conceived using donated eggs from younger women.
You think it is possible to have babies in your forties and you would assume that you too will be capable of having your own baby when the time comes.
If you cannot , there is always the IVF process.Not everyone can afford this treatment . It is very expensive and only have a 13 % chances of success.
You may be healthy , look and feel young at your 40’s but your eggs have gone by their expired date.
The window of opportunity of having your own baby is so narrow that you are not able to squeeze through anymore.
All your plans of wanting to have a bigger and beautiful house, a successful career , a loving and understanding husband and the most prize of all ,a baby is now out of your reach.
Without a baby or motherhood, life seems to have lost it’s meanings. You often wonder about those mothers who devoted all their love and time taking care of their mentally challenged kids.
Don’t be too busy chasing financial independence or looking for the right and perfect man to come along.
Your most fertile time will not last forever and your chance to have a baby will be too late.
Many women would share her fate because they do not look at the big picture. They are just like those lemmings rushing over the cliff and into the sea.
You have no one to blame but yourself because you did not plan to have a baby in your most fertile period but rather settle for all those worldly desires first.
You wait and wait ……..
As a child, you received your mother’s love but sadly you will not be able to pass those love to your own child.
A Mother’s Love
A Mother’s love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendoured miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God’s tender guiding hand.
