What Makes A Mother

I know that Mother's day was last weekend but I thought I would post this anyhow. I want those that are without their children are still moms!

"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 you're baby is not with you?

Yes, 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 deep breath and cleared His throat and then I saw a tear "I wish I could show you what your child is doing today and 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 lessons 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 pillow's 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 still 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 Me until your lessons are 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 until their time is done Remember all the love you have and know that you are a Special mom.

I don't remember much from my first Mother's day after losing Zackery since it was only a week afterwards. Bless my mom for acknowledging me as a mom even though Zackery wasn't with me.

This was the gift she gave me that first horrible Mother's day. I am going to be sure to include it in one of my layouts in the future.

My mom still acknowledges Zackery any chance she gets. I will little things in the mail from her that reminds her of him. Have I mentioned I love my mom? :)

This was technically my third layout but felt it was very appropriate for Mother's day. I am still needing to do journaling.
