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!!)

Baby's Choice
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.

Re: This is a great spirit lifter!!

That was a really beautiful poem Purrbaby, thanks for sharing it. Of course I too am in tears, thinking sometimes my daughter chose the wrong mommy, but then I remember that I am as good as I can be right now. There are times when she makes me so crazy that I end up yelling way too loud, and then I think, what the heck am I doing!!!? She's only 3!!! And then there are the times when we sit close talking and thinking and just doing simple things like looking at the stars and I know we were meant to be together. I am so thankful for my daughter, the spirit she has inside is a breath of fresh air. And when she looks at me a certain way with those huge hazel eyes of wonder, I fall in love all over again.

Re: This is a great spirit lifter!!

Aww Molly! I feel the same way. I woke up sick as a dog and my 5 1/2 month old is what woke me up. Of course I was cranky b/c I didn't feel good and just wanted to sleep! Not that it was his fault but still. Then he was laying beside me after he finished his bottle and he was just looking at me and he put his hand on my cheek and rubbed it. He has the prettiest blue eyes(so I think!!) and he opened his mouth and reached forward and gave me a sloppy baby kiss. I love it when he does that!! He wrapped his hands around my neck and said "na!" I think he was saying he loved me and at that moment I was so glad I was a mom and I was so thankful that I'm having this baby. Which is something I haven't been to happy about lately. My day started out as the worst one yet but ended up the most special. Funny how kids do that!!

Smile, life doesn't last that long.
