They say that Mothers have an intuition and maybe they do. Sixteen years ago, I had a dream that my youngest daughter was going to die. The same night I woke to my husband screams, she had stopped breathing. That was the beginning to what would become a mother’s worst nightmare. Five weeks later she passed away during open heart surgery. The day that she died, I prayed with my heart and soul for God not to take her, but he did. Call it Mother’s intuition, call it a six sense, I don’t really care what you call it, but I just had this feeling that she was going to die.
My daughter Katie was only given to me for a little while, but the love that she brought to my life will last a lifetime.
Through my children I’ve learned to embrace each day. So clearly in my mind, I still see my daughter’s face. In such a short time I experienced joy and sorrow. I know in my heart the lesson God was trying to teach me.
Cherish your children, never take them for granted, enjoy each day that you spend with them and most important of all tuck them in bed each night for as long as they will let you, because children grow up too quickly.
Babies don’t keep.
