Post For Mom’s – ALL Mom’s Must Read

This morning as I was getting ready for the day, this song came on Apple Music. It is called “Mom” by Donna Taggert.

“Little baby told God, hey I’m kind of scared
I don’t really know if I want to go down there
From here it looks like a little blue ball
It’s a great big place, and I’m so small
Why can’t I just stay here with you
Did I make you mad, don’t you want me too
God said child, of course I do
But there’s somebody special waiting for you

So hush now baby, don’t you cry
‘Cause there’s someone down there waiting, whose only goal in life
Is making sure you’re always gonna be alright
A loving angel, tender, tough and strong
It’s almost time to go and meet your Mom
You’ll never have a better friend
Or a warmer touch to tuck you in
She’ll kiss your bruises, your bumps and scrapes
And anytime you hurt, her heart’s gonna break
So hush now baby, don’t you cry
‘Cause there’s someone down there waiting whose only goal in life
Is making sure you’re always gonna be alright
A loving angel, tender, tough and strong
It’s almost time to go and meet your Mom
And when she’s talking to you, be sure you listen close
‘Cause she’ll teach you everything you’ll ever need to know
Like how to mind your manners
To love and laugh and dream
And she’ll put you on the path that will bring you back to me
So hush now baby, don’t you cry
‘Cause there’s someone down there waiting, whose only goal in life
Is making sure you’re always gonna be alright
A loving angel, tender, tough and strong
Come on child it’s time to meet your Mom

Immediately, upon hearing the words, the flood poured! Yes, it was immediately after I put on my mascara. Ha! Why the tears? Because, although I fail at this “mom” thing pretty much everyday, many times a day… I have wanted nothing more out of life than for my kids to know they are loved by me, no matter what! I have made it my goal to ensure my kids know I love them before they go to bed each night, no matter what! As a child & teenager, I went to bed almost every night feeling unloved and unloveable. As a result, I never wanted my children to feel the emptiness that comes with feeling unloved!

Even if we have the biggest argument, my kids will tell you, I go into their room before bed and tell them, “I know we’re upset with each other, but I do not want you to go to bed feeling that I don’t love you! I love you! And we will get through this! Okay?” Usually this solves any disagreements between us… interesting! 😉.

More than anything in this life, I want my children to know and understand the unconditional love of God! I want them to know that God made them with a special purpose and has amazing plans for their lives!

I will fail them… I will hurt them… I will selfishly yell at them… I will get distracted… One day, I will die!

Thus, I am trying fervently to continually point them to Jesus!

Because…

He will never fail them! He will never hurt them! He will never selfishly yell at them! He will never be distracted! He will never die!

I am thankful that we serve a God of grace! I am thankful for my children’s forgiving hearts! I am thankful for songs that, even though the timing was poor, force me to step back and look at my actions, my heart, and my desire as a mother! Link to song is below… Listen at your own risk! Trigger alert is a euphemism!

Blessings, Crystal
