    Default What Makes a Mother...

    I got this from a friend on another board. I wasn't sure if it had been posted here or not, sorry if it has, I missed it. I have to warn you now, it's a tear jerker and I cry every single time I read it and not just the silent tears, I bawl. I've been trying to decide whether or not to post it, but I know that after the intial tears, there are many of you who will enjoy it as I do. Hugs to all.

    What Makes a Mother

    I thought of you and closed my eyes, and prayed to God today.
    I asked what makes a mother and I know I heard him say,
    A mother has a baby. This we know is true.
    But God, can you be a mother when your baby's not with you?
    Yes, you can, He replied with confidence in His voice.
    I give many women babies. When they leave is not their choice.
    Some I send for a lifetime and others for a day.
    And some I send to feel your womb but there's no need to stay.
    I just don't understand this. God, I want my baby here.
    He took a breath and cleared His throat and then I saw a tear.
    I wish I could show you what your child is doing today.
    If you could see your child smile with other children and say,
    "We go to earth to learn our lessons of life and love and fear.
    My Mommy loved me, Oh so much, I got to come straight here.
    I feel so lucky to have a Mom who had so much love for me,
    I learned my lesson very quickly. My Mommy set me free.
    I miss my Mommy, Oh so much, but I visit her each day.
    When she goes to sleep, on her pillows' where I lay.
    I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek and whisper in her ear,
    'Mommy don't be sad today, I'm your baby and I'm here.'"
    So you see, my dear sweet one, your children are okay.
    Your babies are here in MY home and this is where they'll stay.
    They'll wait for you with ME until your lesson is through.
    And on the day that you come home, they'll be at the gates for you.
    So now you see what makes a Mother--It's the feeling in your heart.
    It's the love you had so much of, right from the very start.
    Though some on earth may not realize you are a Mother, until their time is done.
    They'll be up here with ME one day, and know you're the best one.
