Precious Gift

When times seem too hard to bear and I feel like giving up,
I envision your beautiful face, the twinkle of your eyes and things of such.
The bond we created from my womb to the day you were born
Is a mother and daughter bond that can never be torn.
With the strength and guidance of God and the blessings he pours down from above,
I want to be the best mom I can be to you and embrace you with all my love.
You are as precious as a flower and as gorgeous as a rose.
You have been specially made to the very tip of your nose.
You are as sweet as honey; such an innocent young child.
You are brighter than any star in the sky every time you smile.
I want you to be proud of who you are and strive to be the best.
Put forth efforts to achieve your goals and let God do the rest.
I will always be your mother first, but I'm also your friend.
You are the most precious gift that I've ever been given.

With All My Love,

I was told by a Doctor at an Army Base that I couldn't have a baby. I prayed and ask God to help me. I would dedicate her back to Him...just give me a baby to raise. A few months later I found out I was expecting a Child. I was so happy!
She will be 42 years old this December, and she has been my strength all these years. She has given me two Grandsons that are wonderful. She is so giving and has turned out to be a wonderful Mother herself. I am so proud...Deborah...I love you!
Thank you for this poem that explains it so well!

I hurt my daughter very badly with something I said. It was cruel. I need her to forgive me. This poem represents how I feel about her. If only I could go back in time! Right now my heart is breaking because she won't even speak to me.

From the day that I found out I was pregnant I always asked God for a baby girl. Being pregnant was so wonderful. I felt like my life could not be any better. I was so wrong, the day I held my beautiful daughter in my arms was like being in heaven. Nothing ever felt so good. We grew and played together ever day. My daughter was perfect in my eyes. She was kind, loving, giving, and my best friend. Thank you God for my wonderful blessing. I know she was hand picked by you right out of Heaven. Please help me be the mother my beautiful daughter deserves. I can't thank you enough,

What can I say, I have the most precious gift I have ever been given, my BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS (and one very sweet son). So if Olivia and Shayna are reading this poem know that you are loved with all my soul!! And would never want to change one little thing about you. You are everything to me! I love you sooooo much and always know that no matter how near or far we from each other, I am forever grateful for all of you!
Love, Mom

I love this poem! It speaks from my heart! My daughter has been my rock. My mom passed away when I was 8 months pregnant with her. She has gotten me through the toughest times. Her smile lights up my heart everyday. Her laughter is the best medicine in the world. The bond I have with her is incredible. My children are the reason for everything I do. My daughter is attached to my hip - and I cherish every minute of it!

My daughter is the meaning of love to me. She is there to take me through the darkest moments. She reminds me of why I am here. I asked for her at Church 19 years ago! I was blessed and she is my life. She has helped me through some sad moments in my life and is giving me strength to get through my illness and until my last breath, my last tear, I will love her until eternity. She has learned everything that I wanted her to and much more, she has shown me strength and she is so talented and I know that I have done the right thing. She is now ready in my heart. She has used her heart and her soul and touched mine and now she will be ready for her road ahead. I love her more than life and she will always be with me in my heart as my mother is in mine!!!

This story is amazing, I have this amazing connection with my girl, now 4 years old, when she was 15 months old, her father drowned her, she was on life support, in a coma, she was the town story, everyone knew she wasn't going to make it, somehow survived it, she's as normal as any other 4 year old to this day, but I thank god everyday, letting me give my little angel the life she deserves, I am the proudest mother in this world!!, I will never let her go. We're best friends!
