I met a very young woman the other day at the store. She was very and obviously pregnant. I asked when her babe was due and she said December. That was 3 months away! I asked her how she was doing and she replied “I’m scared to death.”
“Oh, Honey.” I smiled and she looked terrified. “Women have been having babies for hundreds of thousands of years. You’ll do fine.”
She thanked me and went on with her shopping.
That incident has prayed on my mind for a few days and this morning, 4am I woke up with something just nagging at me.
I made coffee and sat at the computer and the next thing I wanted to do was write a spell. Just for that young woman and her child.
This is what came out when I started typing:
Blessing for she who waits and the unborn
Bless this mother, dry her tears
An easy delivery & no more fears
For the mother, I say Blessed be,
Keep this babe healthy & safe for me.
Make him strong that he may live long
To learn, to live and do no wrong.
Make him tall and straight, clear seeing
With a gentle heart, a righteous being.
With all the power in my soul
Keep these two strong and whole.
As I have spoken, so it shall be.
Garnet, Blessed by Dragons
It is my sincerest wish that the Mother hears and gives
her special Blessing to this sweet stranger and her child.
