The other night I was praying, thanking God for the mercies he's had on me. Thanking him for Prairie and Teela. Asking God to keep them safe and asking him to help me be the best mother I can be. I was thanking him for my day.................and then the thought crossed my mind, I haven't even begun to thank him for MY time with CYLAS. All I've done is ask WHY? So right then and there, I did tell him "thank you" for my son. Thank you for letting me hold him in my arms. Thank you for allowing me to love him now and forever. Thank you for letting him stay for 3 weeks. Thank you for bringing him into my life. I also told God that I will probably never understand his reasoning for making my son an angel, but that I knew he was only doing the right thing at that time. I asked God to give Cylas a message from me. I told him to let Cylas know how much I loved him and missed him. I told him to ask Cylas to always stay close to his sisters and keep them safe. And I also told him to tell Cylas that there is not a day that goes by that I don't wish he was still here.
So, even though Mother's Day is just another day, I know that it's meant for special mom's, broken or whole. I know that dead baby mama's still fit into the category, I just haven't quite figured out where? To the world our babies are gone and we should get over it, but the world doesn't know our pain!! We are angel mom's and we are strong. Our love has to travel from earth to heaven on a daily basis. It takes a special woman to be an angel mom. It's not always easy, but somehow through it all we manage to survive.
(HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!! to whoever reads this post.)
