What if today , and tonight , and every day, and every night ….
You were the fertile soil where your children are planted? You were the night sky filled with stars when you lay on their bed , and tell stories and sing? What if yours were the eyes they looked into to see acceptance, that yes, they have what it takes ? What if your love was a hideaway from the storms, and the heartbreak that they face daily? What if your encouragement was the most important thing in the whole wide world today? What if your hand was the one steady thing the could hold onto today ? What if your laughter was a shield that they could hold up against the bitter arrows flying ? The heart of a mother is the garden of creation . You are a laborer in the field , and a lioness in the community .
