Happy Mother”s Day 2013!
You made me a mom, I said to my older daughter at bedtime. She snuggled into my hug and looked at me with a quiet smile. I was waiting for you for a long time, I continued…And I couldn’t wait to meet you. Tell me about when I was born, she said and I repeated the well worn story of how she was sitting on her brother (her twin). She laughed as she always does. I told her again how I could feel …her head tucked up against my ribs and she placed her hand on the spot. I sang her the lullaby I learned in the hospital and she melted.
I’m so glad to see you, I’m so glad to hear you, I love you, I love you. Her breathing became deep and regular and I kissed the top of her head. “Thank You,” I whispered, “For Making Me a Mom.” Happy Mother’s Day 2013…To All You Moms Who Have Experienced This Amazing Love…May God Bless You & Your Families
