Since it is Mama Monday I thought it right to talk about us Mamas. After all, we are the topic of conversation. I think our first order of business is to consider who this involves. What do you think makes a Mama a Mama?

Well to avoid any type of confusion I think we better set the record straight. Some Mamas have babies here on earth, this is the most obvious type of Mama I suppose. These Mamas grow big, beautiful bellies and nine months later they are blessed with a tiny, squirmy little baby.

Some Mamas grow their children in their bellies,
other Mamas grow them in their heart.

Mamas can’t always grow these big bellies on their own. Sometime these Mamas need a little help, so they have a surrogate help them out. Or they seek out a special child who was meant just for them to adopt. There are also foster Mamas. Mamas who have a spot open in their heart and home for a darling child.

There are Mamas who know they can’t care for their child like someone else could. This is a very selfless Mama. A Mama who carries her growing baby and then gives them a better life by giving them up.

There are Mamas who fell in love with a special guy who already had children of his own. This Step-Mama shares in the life of her hubbys kids, she falls in love with his kids just as she fell for him.

Other Mamas have angel babies. Sweet babies that were not seen by my eyes or yours, born right into Heaven. Their are babies who were born too soon, too fragile to live on this earth. Some babies who are born sleeping. These are very special Mamas who carry their babes in their heart instead of their arms.

All these Mamas may sound very different. They all have different circumstances and situations. They make different choices and have individual thoughts.

But if all these Mamas had a talk there would be one thing they all agree on.
Their babies were the best risk any of them ever took.

 I enjoy quotes from Winnie the Pooh. I am sharing one that I deemed
appropriate for all the types Mamas out there.

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you
must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.”
―    A.A. Milne

All you Mamas, I hope you have a beautiful week.
