It has been a while since we all talked creators! So, I thought that it would be a great time to share this story with you!
It‘s Mother’s Day, and it is the day where we honor the women who gave birth to us. We celebrate these ladies with food and gifts. And I am so happy that God allowed us to procreate through them!
There is something that I want all of us to be aware of: the women who are not walking around with children. Some women are not because they have not found the right person to marry or are not ready yet. Others because they have lost their children due to miscarriage or death. One of my closest friends since elementary is sharing her story today! Let's give Taylor Matthews the floor because she deserves it and knows and understands the woes of miscarriage and heartbreak. She is a woman who values prayer even through loss. Today is still a good day. Although you may have lost a child, they are an angel in Heaven, and we celebrate you for experiencing the feeling of being a mom!
Taylor has written a poem to her unborn child and to encourage those who share the same story. Your time is coming. Not everyone will understand what it means to lose a child. However, Taylor and I have survived and, so will you! And one day, we will experience the love of our child!
Just as Jesus said in Matthew 19:14, "'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'"
A Poem to my Unborn
Since I found out about you
I couldn’t wait to meet you
I wasn’t scared one bit
I was ready for you.
You and I for a lifetime.
Couldn’t wait to see your smile,
Watch you take your first steps,
Hear you say your first words.
The moment I heard your heartbeat
I knew my life was complete.
Our time together was short
I’ll love you always
I officially found out I was carrying you.
I saw your heartbeat.
I felt like my world crashed.
A part of me is missing
I’ll never understand why.
I never see your face but I dream about you all the time.
I wish I had the chance to meet you.
I encourage every woman to be honest about what is hurting them. Praying about it and talking to others is helpful. These types of situations are difficult to get through. And you will have your days, some will be better than others, but things will get better with time!
Maybe you did not lose a child, but maybe you lost someone close and cannot talk to them anymore. If so, I encourage you to write a note today to those individuals and express your love for them.
Today is the day the Lord has made, and we will rejoice and be glad in it!
Taylor still has a smile on her face regardless of what happened, and so should you!
