    For years I have thought of my first Mother's

    Day. Of being able to claim that title. For years on Mother's Day I have mourned the child that died in my womb. For years I contained death, having once been a tomb. I have wondered what it is to be a mother. Now I know it is life and love. It is living with your heart...

    Teach children by example not advice.

    Give them the tools to have long lasting nurturing relationships. The best gift you could ever give them is your time, not your words.

    My only hope for my kids is

    for them to succeed in life🌹 To me success means to be at peace and be happy with what they are doing in life. It does not matter how much , but what makes them happy. This is what I pray and hope.

    Sure my children may not be here and are in God's kingdom now. But that doesn't mean they've never existed. Being pregnant is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I was quite young when I was pregnant, the first pregnancy I was 16 and the second one, I was 17. I...
