This came up on my Facebook timeline this morning

It’s been shared before I know but it came up as a memory shared on my timeline from a friend a year ago. This January marks three years since we went to the Doctors and asked for help in ttc a baby and still we are no nearer to our goal. I’m trying to keep my hope....

An elephant and a dog became pregnant at same time. Three months down the line the dog gave birth to six puppies. Six months later the dog was pregnant again, and nine months on it gave birth to another dozen puppies. The pattern continued.

On the eighteenth month the dog approached the elephant questioning, "Are you sure that you are pregnant? We became pregnant on the same date, I have given birth three times to a dozen puppies and they are now grown to become big dogs, yet you are still pregnant. Whats going on?". The elephant replied, "There is something I want you to understand. What I am carrying is not a puppy but an elephant. I only give birth to one in two years. When my baby hits the ground, the earth feels it. When my baby crosses the road, human beings stop and watch in admiration, what I carry draws attention. So what I'm carrying is mighty and great."

Don't lose faith when you see others receive answers to their prayers. Don't be envious of others testimony. If you haven't received your own blessings, don't despair. Say to yourself "My time is coming, and when it hits the surface of the earth, people shall yield in admiration."

Stay encouraged!

Hi, I am sorry that you are going through this. I know it hurts. I have also been on TTC for one year. It was the most frustrating time. I really admire what you have shard. You are an inspiration for everyone else. We should not be jealous of others. This is a bad thing. Don’t lose faith in your prayers. Everything has a perfect timing. We should always think positive. There is always a way. I have seen many people is despair. All this because of seeing others getting their babies. Don’t lose faith in yourself. Life gives everyone a chance. Wishing you good luck. Keep updating.
