The Heart That Never Quits

{photo credit qthomasbower via Flickr}

The heart of a mother is a heart that never quits.

It starts to beat before anyone else even know that's it changed, that it's become a mother.

It starts the day before anyone else is up, sometimes even the sun. It's the last one to slow down at the end of the day. The last one to stop and take a rest.

The heart of the mom makes sure everyone else has their meal, their, cup a napkin before sitting down to her now cold plate.

The heart of the mom spends it's days roaming on the outside being pulled in whatever ways her children are running.

It jumps and lurches at the bumps and falls that make up childhood.

It swells ans swoons with the milestones reached and tender moments shared.

There is nothing to big or to small to have an impression on a mother's heart. Everything is precious, everything is loved.

The heart of a mother is a heart that never quits, never gives up and never forgets.

For the heart of a mother is true, unconditional and unending love that never gives up and never quits.

Sometimes I don't think I really had a heart before I became a mother. Honestly, it's just so intense this motherhood stuff.
