I must say I'm just amazed to know how strong the call is on a persons soul concerning the devine order of lifes circle. For people who have not experienced this call, you probably don't know what I'm talking about. Maybe I can explain.
When a woman gives birth to a child, and then goes through the experience of raising that child... at some point she realizes that her ability to bring another life into the world was not just a random act or routine (regardless of the fact that many women have done it) what matters is that she has been given the ability to accomplish the task. There is no force on this earth strong enough to demolish the that of motherhood from her soul. No matter what life may take that child through, that mother will alway remember the child she brought into the world and her soul will continue effortlessly to do what it takes to bring the best to that child. Age has no bearing. If that child leaves this world before the mother does, the since of lost is so great, and devasting, that the thought of moving on with her life becomes ritualistic and not reality. The secrets of a mothers heart are as large as the ocean.
The joys and excitements, sorrows, tears and fears, trials and disappointments are all experiences that come with motherhood. As a mother you find yourself kneeling in prayer many days for the sake of your child.
Yes, there are many single mothers in this world, however, wisdom will force a mothers to reach out to others for help to get that child whatever is needed.
I applaued the women that have raised their children to reach adulthood and still have a close relationship with their children. The emotional challenges of this life will encourage the young adult to seek in others the things they can only receive from the devine order, and that is the uncompromised and never ending since of being loved and cared for, the true meaning of the word friend.
My heart is sad for people who don't know or have not experienced this part of life. These are the experiences that can not be taught to you. You must live them to know them.
