Mother of 5 – 6 Hopefully Soon!

January 8th, 2015

For all you moms waiting for your special bundles of joy!

T’was the night before tomorrow
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse.
I “roll” from my bed
With a groan and a sigh
Little junior still occupies the womb
And I wander “why”? 
I’m miserable, impatient, disbelieving
And weary!
I try to stay positive
Yet the night feels quite dreary!
I pace back and forth
(It is more like a waddle)
And I long once again
My sweet baby to coddle.
I traipse to the room 
Of my sweet little brood
To watch them sleep sweetly
I’m in a contemplative mood.
I remember the times 
I carried these children of mine
And how they arrived
In God’s perfect time.
And thus it will be
For this baby, I know,
Yet the waiting is hard
And seems to go slow!
Yet my heart is so thankful
For the healthy, bright faces
That I see every day
And with love my heart races!
And I know it will be
Worth the wait every bit
For this sweet little bundle
That has not arrived yet! 
With a sigh of contentment
I plod back to my bed
And ease quietly in
And lay down my weary head.
I’ll just rest 
For another hour or two
Before I roll out again
For another nightly cruise!

-Janet Overholt
