I just wanted to share with you guys the beautiful poem my friend Monica wrote for me. I met her through my DDC, and we've become very close. I'm really, really lucky to have her as a friend

The Perfect Mother
I may not be there now, nor will I be tomorrow,
But in your heart forever, please let there be no sorrow.
You did the very best, is all I have to say,
And mommy please do know, I'm grateful to this day.

Deep inside of you, there is a strength like no other.
And I just want to thank you, for my little brother.
I keep an eye upon you, every second every day;
We'll watch him grow together, there is no other way.

Forever in your heart, my angel wings they grow,
And in your womb my love, grows stronger than you know.
A mommy you have been, much longer than it seems,
And cradled in your arms, will soon be all your dreams.

To finish up my words, I just need you to hear,
Mommy I will wait, catching every tear.
To know you have a chance, to raise my little brother,
Brings me a great joy, for you are the perfect mother.

-MLH, 2010

It made Dan and I both cry (not Daisy though). It's going up on the mantle next to Ethan's picture, just as soon as I feel well enough to get to work to use the printer.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!
