With Mother’s Day only a few moons away, I’ve been reading many blogs from mothers discussing their lives, work, and children. One story a mom posted spurred a reoccurring thought in my mind. I don’t understand how any woman who is in love with a man pass up the precious opportunity to become a mother?
Of course there are circumstances in life. A woman cannot have a child because of issues with health, infertility, age, a “significant other” discrepancy, and other factors. I’m not talking about those women. And I’m not talking about single women either. I’m posting about women that have a loving man. They can have children but deny their obligation to do so. These women choose no and they’re everywhere. If you listen closely, their sorrow is masked between poignant excuses and ambition. The most popular masks are worn around the cover of not wanting any children, money, and having careers. Those are externally triggered decisions of free will, disregarding a woman’s inborn necessity of becoming a mother. She hears but doesn’t listen as the mind supersedes the God-speak in her heart. She fears a lifestyle change.
Procreation, or the gift to procreate, is innate within all mankind. Every person originated from a male and female conjugation, whether that interaction was happy or unpleasant, it’s a union none the less. From that conjugation, it is the female in which all humanity comes from. A man cannot labor children. His role in procreation is to plant the seed. Our Creator chose women to bear the burden of nurturing the unborn life and giving external life through the birthing process. God blesses the female temple with undeniably the greatest gift in the world, a child. The grace of God blesses women in a way that men can never be blessed.
What in the world could be more precious, more priceless, and more God-like, than giving life and loving her child? Being a mother is the most rewarding job on Earth. It’s also the hardest, toughest job on the globe. It’s also the most invaluable. No mother will say motherhood is easy and no mom will say all her days are great. Sometimes a mother is so stressed with chaos, she wishes to toss the refrigerator at the mailman but her hands are tied. She’s cooking and nursing and cleaning; all 3 hands are full.
You know what though? A loving mother understands she’s been blessed, in spite of the pandemonium surrounding her. I’m not saying she couldn’t use a spa day more often, but she never loses her love for her children and she never displaces it. A mother’s baby is always a part of her heart and soul. Moms are loving mothers forever and they are living saints among us all.
Unless a woman has a calling from God, like Mother Teresa, I find it difficult to understand why she would ignore her inherent need for motherhood and true feminine self-fulfillment. It’s hard to fathom why a woman would not desire within the depths of her soul to become a mother. Why would a woman opt-out of that brilliant deal?
If you asked any loving mother if she would trade her son for diamond earrings, I bet she says no. If you asked any loving mother if she would swap her daughter for a slew of weekend holidays abroad, I wager no again. Do you think a loving mother would trade her baby for a large bank account? I’ll venture on the loving mother and child remaining together.
I think one of the biggest mistakes a “mature” girl can make in her life, is to not heed to the calling of motherhood. That is the main reason we are here. The calling is intrinsic and within every girl since birth. As a childless woman, she refuses to listen to the innate voice inside and over-rides what is natural within her. No job, no material possession, and no lifestyle can match this. How can a woman not passionately desire the joy and tender-loving happiness of hearing her baby say, “I love you mom”? What could be better than that?
