A First Time Mother

When A woman becomes pregnant for the first time she's happy, and scared all at the same time.She knows she has A precious little life depending on her inside.She's scared of the unknown, and the pain to come.She becomes more, and more anxious with every month that goes by.Then the time arrives when that little bundle of joy is in her arms.The pain of the labor has faded alway.As soon as she heard her baby cry she knew everything was ok.Time fly's by.Her little angel has started to crawl.She thinks to herself how this little bundle of joy has changed her life.For she had to grow with her child.She had to learn be patient, and to have A tender touch.To be calm, and nurturing no matter what.The love she felt for her baby, and the bond that grew so strongly.That came oh so naturally.She rocks her baby to sleep.Tucks her little angel in bed, and kisses her baby's cheeck.As she get's down on her knee's she thanks God for this amazing, and beautiful baby as one tear falls from her cheeck.

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
