Every once in a while a woman shows what it is to be a mother

When Jenni Lake was admitted to the hospital she told the nurse, ‘I’m done, I did what I was supposed to. My baby is going to get here safe.’ The nurse would later repeat the girl’s words to comfort her family when Lake passed away 12 days after the baby was born.
Jenni’s last words were about her son as he was placed beside her a final time.

A beautifull story of compassion and self sacrifice, perfect example of a mother's love for her child. This brought tears to my eyes, it is sad, that such a good woman had to leave us so early, but her sacrifice will not be in vain, we will remember her.
My prayer for this young lady, this is the kind of story that gives us hope for the future.

After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park, forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage.

One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick. When he gently struck it, three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead mother's wings. The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise.

She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies. Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast... because she had been willing to die, so those under the cover of her wings would live.

'He will cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you will find refuge.'

Thank God for mothers like these everywhere... both human and animal. They give us hope and love without which, life is not worth living.
