What Makes a Mother?


I thought of you and closed my eyes And prayed to God today I asked “What makes a Mother?”
And I know I heard Him say. “A Mother has a baby” This we know is true “But God can you be a Mother,
When your baby’s not with you?” “Yes, you can,” He replied With confidence in His voice “I give many women babies,
When they leave is not their choice. Some I send for a lifetime, And others for the day.
And some I send to feel your womb, But there’s no need to stay.”
“I just don’t understand this God I want my baby to be here.”
He took a deep breath and cleared His throat, And then I saw the tear.
“I wish I could show you, What your child is doing today.
If you could see your child’s smile, With all the other children and say…
‘We go to Earth to learn our lessons, Of love and life and fear.
My Mommy loved me oh so much, I got to come strait here.
I feel so lucky to have a Mom, Who had so much love for me.
I learned my lessons very quickly, My Mommy set me free.
I miss my Mommy oh so much, But I visit her every day. When she goes to sleep,
On her pillow’s where I lay I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek,
And whisper in her ear. Mommy don’t be sad today, I’m your baby and I’m here.’
“So you see my dear sweet ones, your children are okay.
Your babies are born here in My home, And this is where they’ll stay.
They’ll wait for you with Me, Until your lesson’s through.
And on the day that you come home they’ll be at the gates for you.

So now you see what makes a Mother, It’s the feeling in your heart it’s the love you had so much of Right from the very start Though some on earth may not realize, you are a Mother. Until their time is done. They’ll be up here with Me one day and know that you are the best one!

DISTANCE AND TIME


This song is dedicated to all the lovers who can't be together separated by distance and time.





You are always on my mind
all I do is count the days
where are you now?

I know I never let you down
I will never go away

I really wish that you'd stay but what can we do
all the days that you've been gone I dreamed about you
and I anticipate the day that you will come home, home, home

No matter how far you are
no matter how long it takes him
through distance and time
I'll be waiting

and if you have to walk a million miles
I'll wait a million days to see you smile
distance and time, I'll be waiting

distance and time, I'll be waiting
will you take a train, to meet me where I am
are you on your way?
I will never do anything to hurt you
I'll never live without you


I really wish that you would stay but what can we do
All the days that you've been gone I dreamed about you
and I anticipate the day that you will come home, home, home

no matter how far you are
no matter how long it takes him
distance and time,I'll be waiting
And if you have to walk a million miles
I'll wait a million days to see you smile
distance and time
I'll be waiting

no matter how far you are
no matter how long it takes him
distance and time, I'll be waiting
And you can walk a million miles
I'll wait a million days to see you smile
through distance and time, I'll be waiting


I'll be waiting
I'll be waiting
through distance and time
I'll be waiting

You are always on my mind
all I do is count the days

To see your face, to hear your voice

And oh, to touch you is a dream come true

So I'm standing here, with my hand held out

Knowing that your love will never fade, I stand amazed without a doubt





And I wanna hear your voice, in the morning when I rise

I think I know I'm just a normal man, only made of sand except when you're by my side

Will you love me, teach me, don't leave me I pray

And when I, and I'm thinking of the times

Your hands in mine, together we will stay

You made me better today

Better than I was before

And now my heart can rest and I will search no more

You made me better today, today, today




My heart has wings

Oh you take me away

And every prayer I've ever prayed was answered today

So I'm standfing here, with my hand held out

Knowing that my love will never leave

My hearts on my sleeve and now I believe





And I wanna hear your voice in the morning when I rise

I think I know I'm just a normal man, only made of sand except when you're by my side

Will you love me, teach me, don't leave me I pray

And when I, and I'm thinking of the times

Your hands in mine, together we will stay

You made me better today

Better than I was before

And now my heart can rest and I will search no more

You made me better today





I stand proclaimed, true love is here to stay

I stand proclaimed, forever starts today

Today...

You made me better today

Than I was before

And now my heart can rest and I will search no more

Cuz you made me better today, than I was before

And now my heart can rest

And I will search no more

You made me better today

Today...

Made me better today.

Why Babies Smile



  • Babies smile during sleep from the day they’re born.
  • Infant smiles have nothing to do with gas.
  • Your baby will respond to, and smile at, auditory stimulus (such as your voice) before visual.
  • At two to three months, your baby starts to look right at you when she smiles.
  • By six months, your baby will have different smiles – open mouth smiles usually indicate more joy than closed.


  • Babies usually don’t start social smiling until about eight months, but their smiles can still say a lot before then.



    Baby smiles at 0-1 months

    Neonatal smiling occurs from birth to one month of age and shows no emotional content. Smiles are spontaneous and often occur while the baby is drowsy or during REM stages of sleep. Baby smiles are subcortical in origin and will actually decrease with maturity (so premature babies smile more than full-term babies). And, contrary to popular belief, baby smiles have nothing to do with gas.

    Baby smiles at 1-2 months

    At around one or two months, babies will gradually start to respond to environmental stimulation. Your baby’s first smile when she’s fully awake will likely appear between six and 10 weeks.
    At this age, your baby’s brain is developing, her vision is improving and she can recognize your face. Your baby will likely respond to auditory stimuli first, such as music or mom or dad’s voice. Next comes a response to visual and auditory stimulation combined. The last thing to make baby smile is visual stimulation alone.

    Baby smiles at 2-6 months

    “Earlier is not better,” says Dr. Messinger. But you should see a doctor if your baby is not smiling by three months. Don’t push your little one to smile, but once she does, have fun with it. At two to three months, you’ll notice your baby starts to look right at you when she smiles. During this time period babies will increasingly respond to face-to-face interaction. Make funny faces to get your baby to laugh.

    By four to six months, your baby will start to smile, then look away. “Babies are learning to regulate emotions and the joy may be too intense,” says Dr. Messinger. Let her look away, then reengage once she returns her smile to you.

    Baby Smiles at 6-12 months

    During this period you will start to see lots of different smiles. As a general rule, open mouth smiles demonstrate more joy than closed. Your baby will also start to play with laughter. By eight or nine months, smiles are used often in social situations and as a method of communication so make sure to respond to your baby when she gives you a big smile.
