A MOTHERS LOVE

What is knowing someone and loving them as there life is just beginning inside you?
What is a whirlwind of mood swings and crazy food cravings?
What is rounding out and growing so rapidly, but not caring?
A MOTHERS LOVE

What is hours of undescribible pain and knowing you would do it again in a heartbeat?
What is days of no sleep but jumping to attention at hearing the whisper of a diaper rustle from two rooms away?
What is knowing the difference between five cries that to others sound exeactly alike?
A MOTHERS LOVE

What is teaching you day after day the tasks that will eventually seem so natural?
What is leaving the house in mismatched socks and running eyeliner to get medicine at 2 a.m.?
What is watching over you as you sleep and thanking God for such a precious gift?
A MOTHERS LOVE

What is crying on the inside but showing a smile as bright as the sun to comfort you on your first day school?
What is sleeping with wyes wide open and ears so alert to the sound of your footsteps, knowing you are home safe from a night out?
What is consoling you through a broken heart and reassuring you that you will love again?
A MOTHERS LOVE

What is a bittersweet moment watching you say I do on your wedding day?
What holds her new grandchild in her arms at thousands of memories of you at that age flood her mind?
What is always with you, even when the earthly being is no longer there?
A MOTHERS LOVE
