For nine long long months I longed to greet you We’ll if I’m perfectly honest … You were so snug in your home you stayed for an extra ten days! I had waited patiently for your arrival and couldn’t wait to hold you in my arms Finally the day arrived and I discovered they don’t call it labour for nothing … It was damn hard work! But twenty-four hours later you arrived in the world I guess every mother thinks her child is the most beautiful You were gorgeous! With fine downy blonde hair and sapphire blue eyes I counted your tiny fingers and toes You were absolutely perfect Later that evening I sat in a comfy chair to feed you Looking out of the window I saw soft snowflakes swirling It was so so beautiful tears started to fall Now, whenever I see snowy scenes I think of you my precious son 12~08~16 Mr Fondest memory Contest Sponsored by Frank Herrera

My gardener hubby was out cutting grass Jan, when I was in labour with Cora, the middle child. No mobile phones in those days. My friend spotted his van and left a note on the windscreen. "Jean is in labour 4 to 5 cm." He made it in good time. Ah...the good old days...

My hubby was in a meeting at work when I went into labour - when I rang through his work I told the receptionist not to rush him home and to stay at the meeting- it was only 4 mins walk round the corner lol:-) hugs Jan xx

I know all about that extra 10 days. Both my girls took that extra amount of time to be born. This is a precious poem from the heart of a mother. Congratulations.

Hi Jan. That is the most beautiful work I've read yet and there is some beautiful work on this site. As I read it, it took me back to night my son was born and it brought back a tear of joy. Thank you Jan. I give it a 10.
