A Real Mom

June 2, 2016

Guest Post by Leslie Matteson

A real mom is made of more than what is done on Earth.
A real mom carried life, even if they never gave birth.
A real mom might swing her child or pull them in a cart.
A real mom might have only carried her child in her heart.
A real mom might celebrate birthdays with presents, balloons & cake.
A real mom might decorate her child’s grave even when it’s more than she can take.
A real mom is more than what is said on Mother’s Day.
A real mom loves her child even when they’ve gone away.
A real mom is always a mother, whether a child is alive or is at rest.
To your child, angel or not, as their mom you are the best.
