 “There is no friendship, no love, like that of a mother for her child.” Henry Ward Beecher

Did you ever wonder how a child ended up with a specific mother? According to Sufi mysticism, the soul of the child looks down at the world and sees every soul that resides in every woman. When he finds the one that will be able to help him fulfill his life's purpose, he makes his choice. The relationship between the mother and child is no accident. At times the child may reject his mother and wish he had a different one. Remember your soul made the choice for a reason.

Mama, protect me when I am inside your womb.…give me your love and peace to grow into your life…only bringing you joy.

My precious lil one…. I speak to you from the depths of my heart, you have entered into my womb and made me complete....a woman....a mother. I believe that this is the most miraculous thing that could have happened to me. I thank God that I have been chosen for such an awesome task…the biggest blessing I could have ever asked for...

 The moment the doctor told of a life inside me, various feelings came rushing….I felt wonder to amazement, curiosity, excitement and fear. Sweetheart, this is such an over whelming process.…I can never connect to another human being on this earth like the bond we two share. Your soul has entered, touched and interacted with mine….You are flesh of my flesh.…life that I have created.

I can imagine you inside me, beautiful, bouncing, flashing a smile, and when you move, it does wonders for this mother of yours. Do you dream about me and the world outside? Do you smile as I am talking to you? 
You are my baby, my child, my heart, my wonder…I know that you are going to enter this world to bring me only joy. The fulfillment you have brought to me, runs so deep....the light you are destined to bring, is the warmest radiance of all. Though the path you choose will be your own....the journey of your life will never be yours alone. I promise, I will raise you with love, happiness, wisdom…teach you to love, respect, care and strength of mind ….giving you all that I have within. In return you will teach me patience, show me strength, I will learn with you day to day….you lead and I will follow.

These days go by slow….as I am preparing for your arrival….to a home full of love. There are times when I feel sick, achy and tired but seriously, it really does not matter….because when I feel you move, I forget my pains.…and savour that moment. Even though I can’t see you, I know you are warm and snug within.…even though I can’t hold you, I can feel you move, giving Mommy assurance, even though I can’t kiss you, I know you can share my feelings…that the affinity we have is for real.

You are with me all the time, on my mind…and I have truly fallen in love with you…my precious bundle of joy. I am breathing with you….for you. Before I was Mom, I didn’t know the feeling of a heart beating inside me, I didn’t know that something so small could make me feel so important. I never knew that I was capable of giving unconditional love, never knew the warmth, the joy, heartaches, wonderment, or the satisfaction of being a Mom. I didn’t know I had such feelings, before I was MOM...
Thank you my little one, for choosing me, I love you and I am waiting for your arrival…I am thinking of some perfect words to say to you….All that I can say right now is.…I can’t  wait to be your Mommy!!!!

  1. Amazing...U have gone into the very depths of this mother-child relationship. As a child of a mother, i would like to quote Khalil Gibran. "The mother is everything. She is our consolation in sorrow, our hope in misery, and our strength in weakness. She is the source of love, mercy, sympathy, and forgiveness. He who loses his mother loses a pure soul who blesses and guards him constantly."

  2. "The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new." A quote from Rajneesh...With every new article, u come up with a new facet to your charecte...this is the real u...there is a softness to it which was always "U", AND THIS IS WHAT i WANT TO SEE!

  3. really it's gr8......the baby comes in our life n it makes us a complete women..n a mother n really its a biggest blessing for us

  4. "Mother" is an unmatched place in everybody's life......cheers!!

    "The strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws"- Barbara Kingsolver.

    Life is the ultimate art, and no word I say can describe the beauty of it. :)

  21. I love this post. It takes me back to the time when I was carrying Megs. She has been unending source of joy to me.
    Thank you for this post.
    Sometimes though, I wonder,...do mothers need to extract a return favour from their children for bringing them into this world and bringing them up? Why do they do this? Much as I cherish motherhood, I wonder how it is that at times a mother can forget her child's happiness and completely ruin his life. I wonder...

  22. Thank you so much for your comments and words of encouragement...I need them all the time.

  23. When the night is gone, and the morning shines
    I look at you with special eyes.
    I see your face which always smiles.
    I hear your voice which never dies.
    I feel your hair which always flies
    Across my cheeks, across my eyes.
    I feel your hand which always dries
    My happy tears and my sad cries…

    amazing post Alpana, every feeling with a baby inside a memorable experience and you captured it well.
