I have told you all about my son Matthew who has, Hypoplastic Left heart Syndrome. He was born missing half his heart ( to read more about his story click here) It took us years to get him well enough to face every day life. He is a strong yet sweet spirited little boy. He asks a million questions a day, loves to be hooked to my side 24/7 some days I get frustrated being the mommy to a special needs child. But by the end of the end, when I tuck him into bed, sing him his goodnight song, and kiss him goodnight I can help but feel blessed. Every night I pray to the lord that he will make is thru the night, and that his little heart will give us another day. He has made me a better more caring person, I am blessed to be a mommy to such a special little boy.
One of my readers who is a heart mom also send me this poem, that another heart mom sent her. I wanted to share it with you all! It really touched my heart and I hope it will yours too.
“It’s a beautiful day up in heaven. Jesus is rounding up his tiniest angels to go live on earth and be born. One of the sweetest angels says to Jesus “I don’t want to leave, I like it here, and I will miss you”. He reassures the scared little angel that everything will be okay and that he is just going for a visit.
He is still not swayed on this idea so Jesus kneels down, and says, “How about if you leave half of your heart here with me and take the other half with you, will that be okay?” The angel smiles and says, “I guess that will work” but the little angel is still a little scared. He asks, “Will I be okay with only half of my heart?” Jesus replies, “Of course you will, I have other angels there that will help out, and you will be fine.”
Then Jesus gives the angel more details about his plan. He says “When you are born, your mommy and daddy will be scared, so you have to be strong, and when you feel weak just remember that I have the other half of your heart”. “Enjoy your time with your family, play and laugh everyday and when it’s time to come back to heaven, I will make your heart whole again. Always remember that you are not broken, just torn between two loves.”
