What Makes a Mother
I thought of you all, I 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 other's 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 love and life 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 quickMy Mommy set me free.I miss my Mommy oh so much but I visit her each day.When she goes to sleep on her pillow's where I lay.I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek and whisper in her ear,Mommy don't be sad todayI'm your baby and I'm here."So you see my dear sweet one,your children are OK. Your babies are here in my home and this is where they'll stay. They'll wait for you with meuntil your lesson is through.And on that 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 that 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.Written with love for all the Mother's missing their babies by Jennifer Wasik
