I was a little unsure
As I left God’s warm embrace:
What will it be like?
What challenges will I face?

There were so many questions
Running through my mind.
I asked around for the answers
I was hoping to find.

Who will hold me
And cuddle me tight?
Who will rock me
To sleep at night?

Who will comfort me
When I’ve had a rough day?
Who will be there
To take my worries away?

Who will nourish me
And make sure I grow?
Who will read to me
And teach me what I need to know?

I peeked over
And what did I see?
It was God,
Offering the sweetest smile to me.

At that very moment
I felt a new warm embrace.
Your arms wrapped tightly around me,
My eyes locked in to your beautiful face.

I treasured this moment,
As I heard you say:
My sweet baby,
We’ve been waiting for this day.

You held me close,
And didn’t let go.
I didn’t know then,
But now I know . . .

You would always be there
To cuddle and rock.
You would always be there
To comfort and talk.

You would be my source of nutrients
And always keep me fed.
You would bring a smile to my face
With each book you read.

I see now why God just smiled
on that day I had to go,
He knew what was waiting for me
On Earth down below.

A woman with patience,
Thoughtfulness, and care.
A woman with whom
This life I get to share.

That woman is you, Mom.
And I’ll say this too,
I thank God everyday
That He paired me with you.

Dear Baby, I Already Love You

In: Baby, Motherhood

Dear baby I haven’t met yet: They told me not to fall in love with you too quickly. They told me to wait. To wait until . . .  Until I saw a heartbeat on the ultrasound screen. Until I reached the second trimester. Until I knew baby was healthy. Until baby was in my arms. When it comes to pregnancy, everyone says not to fall too hard, too fast, too soon. To wait just a little longer. But sweet baby, I just can’t help it. Because you’re as real to me in the womb as you will be outside...

Motherhood is the Greatest Love Story You’ll Ever Know

Motherhood is often just talked about as that love at first sight.  That moment your eyes first see their little face.  That moment they are first nuzzled up to your face.  But the love a mother feels for her baby starts long before that.  It starts as a dream playing house and mimicking her own mother—the memories that flood in and make her swoon with weak knees when the two lines go blue.  RELATED: Dear Baby, I Already Love You It starts when the strange little wand finds that rhythmic “woosh-woosh-woosh” heartbeat.  It’s when her eyes first see that grainy...

Our long day has come to an end. You cry and cry, desperately trying to evade that inevitable sleep. Oh how badly I wish that you would drift off to sleep. I rock you and I bounce you with no prevail. Why won’t you sleep? I feed you and I change you, but still, you will not sleep. I pace the floor, holding you in my arms. Time is passing us by and the night is growing shorter. Just when it seems that there will be no end, finally your eyes begin to droop. Your muscles become heavy and your...
