Happy Mother’s Day to Me 🙂

“You spent 9 months creating a little wonder, spent a little more than one month nurturing a wonder, and will now spend the rest of your life spreading the word about your little wonder.”

Not Like You by Sheri Hess (*with editing)
I am a mother, though not like you.
You cradle your sweet baby in your arms,
Mine are empty, but I hold her in my heart.
You brush her soft curly hair,
and tie pretty pink bows just right.
A lock of her hair is tucked neatly in a book
You pick daisies and tie them in a chain
to wear around her neck
I cut lilacs and arrange them in a vase to set at her grave.
You look forward to dreams and plans.
I hold on to memories.
I am a mother, though not like you.

Heartstrings By Judi Walker

A mother’s love knows no bounds,
No stronger bond can be found,
Mother and child are connected from the start,
There is a string from heart to heart.

Nothing can break this heartstring,
No matter what the future may bring,
A mother loves her child forever,
The heartstrings hold them together.

It is a love of the sweetest kind,
There is nothing more beautiful you will ever find,
And even death cannot break this bond,
It knows no earthly ties, it is here and beyond.

We are connected to our children forever by this love,
Even when God calls them to this home above,
Nothing can change this love, not time, nor words or even
Death bitter sting,
We are connected forever by the “HEARTSTRINGS”
