Baby's Choice

Thanks to Gina for sharing this poem with me. I always wondered... maybe God made me wait so long to become a mother, not because it wasn't the right time for ME, but because it wasn't the right time for our baby. Perhaps he or she was saved to enter the world at a special chosen moment. Anyway, this poem made me think those thoughts again...

Did you ever think, dear Mother,
As the seeds of me you sowed,
As you breathed new life inside of me
And slowly watched me grow,
In all your dreams about me
When you planned me out so well,
When you couldn't wait to have me there
Inside your heart to dwell,

Did you ever think that maybe,
I was planning for you, too,
And choosing for my very own
A mother just like you?
A mother who smelled sweet and who
had hands so creamy white,
A tender, loving creature
Who would soothe me in the night?

Did you ever think in all those days
While you were coming due,
That as you planned a life for me
I sought a life with you?
And now as I lay in your arms,
I wonder if you knew
While you were busy making me,
I was choosing you!

I agree that babies have to come to earth at a specific time. Just think how different your life would have been if you had been born several years earlier or later. Would you have had the same friends? The same experiences? Would you even have met your husband?
