 Meagan's Musings... A Blog 
Friday, July 02 2010

My best friend is pregnant and three weeks off her due date.  There is a group of us - some mothers, some not - getting together this weekend to celebrate my friend and her soon-to be-new-baby.  Being one of the organisers of the afternoon, I decided to make it more of a "blessing" ritual as opposed to the typical "shower".  It isn't her first baby and she had this thing about not wanting to appear greedy!

So here I am online, hunting around for some inspirational words to create my friend and her baby the Perfect Blessing.  I just stumbled on this poem and had to share:

Just For This Day
~Sally Meyer~

Just for this morning 
I am going to smile when I see your face, and laugh when I 
feel like crying.

Just for this morning 
I will let you wake up softly in your flannel p.j.'s and 
hold you until you are ready to stir.

Just for this morning, 
I will let you choose what you want to wear, and I will say 
how beautiful you are.

Just for this morning 
I will step over the laundry to pick you up, and take you 
to the park to play.

Just for this morning 
I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me 
how to put your puzzle together.

Just for this afternoon 
I will unplug the telephone and keep the computer off, and 
sit with you in the garden 
blowing bubbles.

Just for this afternoon 
I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you 
scream and whine for the ice cream truck 
and I will buy you one, if he comes by.

Just for this afternoon 
I wont worry about what you are going to be when you grow up, 
I will simply love you, for the joy you bring me.

Just for this afternoon, 
I will let you help me make cookies, 
and I wont stand over you. . . trying to 'fix things.

Just for this afternoon, 
I will take you to McDonalds and buy us both a 'Happy Meal' 
So you can have two toys.

Just for this evening, 
I will hold you in my arms and tell you the story of how you 
were born, and how much we love you.

Just for this evening, 
I will let you splash in the bathtub, 
and I wont get angry when you pour water over your sisters head.

Just for this evening 
I will let you stay up late, while we sit on the porch swing 
and count all the stars.

Just for this evening 
I will bring you glasses of water, 
and snuggle beside you for hours, and miss my favorite t.v. show.

Just for this evening 
when I kneel down to pray, I will simply be grateful for all that I have, 
and not ask for anything, 
Except 
Just one more day.

Wow, that is powerful - perhaps because it hit home.  Food for thought and a definite reality check.

My baby boys, I love you so much.
x Mummy x
