“Making the decision to have a child is momentous.  It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”  ~Elizabeth Stone


There was a woman who decided
To give up her hold
On her own heart for something more
Precious to her than gold

It was more precious than diamonds
Or any other jewel
It was for diapers, crying and
Puréed carrots and drool

It was for sickness, broken hearts
Drama, uncertainty
It was to be a mother which she
Was so proud to be

The child knows not how they’ve carried
Their mother’s heart from birth
And carry it along with them
No matter where on Earth

They travel to, no matter how far
Life takes them away
How nice for Mothers that their hearts
Come back on Mother’s Day

    Touched me immensely….mothers are precious, incomparable, and the most wonderful people God created. God could not be there individually for each and every one of us; so he created mothers!
    Keep us inspiring, and keep writing, Miro. 🙂

    My own dear children and grandchildren send me their hearts through cyberspace daily! For those of us with children working geographically distant from us, the internet is heaven sent. Such loving posts as this one here prove that to me,Miro!
