She was woken up by a warm touch on her nipple.

Her husband was awake, stroking her nipple. He had pulled down the blanket to reveal her chest.

“Good morning my Queen” he greeted her.

“Good morning my King” she said stretching her body, her breasts got lifted to his face.

He looked on, he loves how her chest lifts up as she stretches.

“I’ve been thinking about how a great mother you are” he said.

“Hmmm” she responded, stroking his face.

He kissed her forehead.

“Thank you for your brilliant mind. For all the advise you give to our children. You are full of wisdom” he told her.

He kissed her lips.

“Thank you for all the prayers you make. The many times you speak life to our children and shape their destiny” he told her.

He kissed both her breasts.

“Thank you for breastfeeding our children. Thank you for nursing them to growth” he told her.

He kissed both her arms, all the way down to her fingers.

“Thank you for your loving touch, your strength, your hard work, your toil, your cooking, all the chores you have done over the years” he told her.

He pulled the blanket further down, kissed her stretch marks.

“Thank you for bearing the marks of womanhood and motherhood. I respect you” he told her.

He kissed her stomach.

“Thank you for giving our children a home, for your womb, for carrying delicate life inside you” he told her.

He kissed her vagina.

“My oh my, so sweet. Thank you for giving me pleasure, for allowing me to go inside you to sire our children. Thank you for the pain you endured during child birth” he told her.

He kissed her thighs, all the way down her legs to her feet.

“Thank you for carrying the weight of motherhood for nine months and after nine months without complaining. I celebrate you. Our children have an amazing mother” he told her.

She raised herself up and looked at him face to face.

She kissed him and said, “Our children have turned out great because of both you and I. It has been a joint effort from both of us. If I am a great mother, it’s because you are a great husband to me. You have made sure I have peace, I am cared for and I am loved up and that is reflected to the children. When a wife is stressed by her husband and feels disrespected at home, she will struggle with motherhood”

She held him close then reclined with him on the bed for a cuddle.

Her skin felt his skin as she said, “Thank you for bringing out the best in me. Parenthood is so fulfilling with a loving spouse. Thank you for doing parenthood with me”
