What makes a mother?.. Grniz 2 kids; Illinois 45725 posts

I thought of you as 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 is not with you?
Yes you can! He replied with confidence in his voice.
I give many women babies, why 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 theres no need to stay.
I just dont understand this God, I want my baby here.
He took a deep breath and cleared his throat and then I saw a tear.
I wish I could show you what you child is doing today.
If you could see your childs smile with other children and say..
We go to eath to learn our lessons of love and life and fear.
My Mommy loved me oh so much I got to come straight to here.
I feel so lucky to have a Mom who had so much love for me.
I learned my lesson very quick.. 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 dont be sad today.. Im your baby and Im here.
So you see my dear sweet one, your child is okay.
Your baby is here, in my home and this is where your child will stay.
Your child will wait for you, with me, until your lesson is through.
And on that day that you come home, your child will be at the gates for you.
So now you see what makes a Mother...
Its the feeling in your heart.
Its the love you had so much of right from the very start.
Thought some on earth may not realize that you are a Mother until their time is done.
Theyll be up here with me one day and know youre the best one.

I'm not a religious person, but this was still very sweet to read. I'm hoping for the best with the journey ahead of you. You are so strong.

I am here if you need someone to talk to. I know the pain of having a baby in Heaven much to soon, and you are correct. As long as you live, so does your sweet baby. We just carry them in our hearts!
