Being a young mum means that we met a little early, but it also, means I get to love you a little longer. Some people said that my life ended when I had a baby but my life had just began. You didn’t take away from my future, you gave me a new one.

A mother’s love for her son is pure and special.
It can not be broken or reckon with.
It’s a kind of love that softens even the hardest of hearts.
Love between mother and son is strong and visible from the sea.
It brings peace of mind and drys sad tears.
It can bring a man to his knees and make him weep.
A mother’s love for her son is not hidden or shy,
but is ever lasting that grows stronger each day.

A mother so young
And a baby on the way
With a little bit of hope
You made everything okay
A little bit of optimism
Was more than enough
The power of a mother’s love.
I could have been a major, but I chose to be a mother.
I used to make a living, but now I’m making lives.
I’ve traded airmen’s salutes for children’s hugs and kisses.
Instead of giving orders, I’m giving all I am.
Thank you, Lord, for the privilege of being a mother.

“Teach me well, my little one…
To cherish the moments I have with you,
for all too soon
they will swiftly pass away.
Remind me to pause and touch
your soft, small cheek,
to marvel at the innocence in your eyes
and the perfect beauty of your face.
Show me how to treasure more the miracle
that life has given me in you,
to complain less about and praise more
the boundless things you’re sure to do.
In the stillness of the night,
when you wake me from my slumber,
help me to realize how truly blessed I am
to be able to hold you next to my breast
to comfort and cradle you close to my heart.
And as the seasons pass away,
may I never look back in regret
at what may have been.
May I instead leave a legacy
for you to follow
as you in turn will one day welcome
a little one of your very own.”
