A week or so ago I got this text from my niece. This is directly from A CUP OF JO a lifestyle blog developed and written by Joanna Goddard.
There are many young women who chose to not have children and believe me that doesn’t mean they suffer for want of sharing their nurturing ways. Some are natural and others are uncomfortable about kids, no matter. There’s no rules.
My friend never wants children and is very vocal about it. Not everyone is Mom Material.
I consider my relationships with several of my nieces and nephews to be very special. I’m always here for them and they know it.
I do have one son and when my niece sent me this note she put at the bottom…
“You get both first prizes…”
Feeling the Love. Feeling the Love.
Have a quick read. It’s worth it.
This short story below came as a gift and a surprise. It’s about the relationship between a Auntie and her niece or nephew. It really is so special but this passage describes it so well I had to share.
We all have our paths in life. For some it’s being a mom and wife, for others it’s staying single, or choosing to have no children. It’s not our place to judge or belittle any woman for something they have the right to chose.
If you have an Auntie who’s special to you, tell her. You’ll make her day.
Are you an Auntie with a story to tell? Please let me know. It’s such a special role to play and one that is under-recognized. Let me know your story.
