This is a great spirit lifter!!
I had a very hard preg. with my son..lots of bleeding and bed rest..and I found a poem that I turned to for that little encouragement and I would like to share it with all of you!! I sometimes read over this poem now when I'm not having the greatest day or my son is teething. I know everyone says this is supposed to be the greatest time of your life but to be honest sometimes I want off this crazy wild ride I'm on! And sometimes I need a break (in a warm tub!!)
Did you ever think, dear Mother
As the seeds of me you sowed,
As you breathed new life inside of me
And slowly watched me grow,
In all your dreams about me
When you planned me out so well,
When you couldn't wait to have me there
Inside your heart to dwell,
Did you ever think that maybe
I was planning for you too,
And choosing for my own
A mother just like you?
A mother who smelled sweet and who
Had hands so creamy white,
A tender, loving creature
Who would soothe me in the night?
Did you ever think in all those days
While you were coming due,
That as you planned a life for me
I sought a life with you?
And now as I lay in your arms,
I wonder if you knew
While you were busy making me,
I was choosing you!

Of course by the end I'm always in tears!! If anyone else has a good poem or story that could lift everyones spirits please add them here. I would enjoy reading them very much and I'm sure everyone else would too!!
Smile, life doesn't last that long.
