HAPPY "EARLY" MOTHER'S DAY TO ME!!

MY BFF SENT ME THIS, WHICH MADE ME CRY....
AND I HAD TO SHARE!




Before you were a Mom,



You never tripped over toys


or forgot words to a lullaby.


You didn't worry whether or not


your plants were poisonous.


You never thought about immunizations.

Before you were a Mom,



you had never been...

Puked on.


Pooped on.


Chewed on.


Peed on.


You had complete control of my mind and your thoughts.


You slept all night.




    Before you were a Mom,


You never held down a screaming child

so doctors could do tests or give shots. 

You never looked into teary eyes and cried.

You never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.

You never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.




Before you were a Mom,

You never held a sleeping baby just because you didn't want to put her down.

You never felt your heart break into a million pieces when you couldn't stop the hurt.

You never knew that something so small could affect your life so much.

You never knew that you could love someone SO much.  

You never knew you would love being a MOM.






Before you were a Mom,



You didn't know the feeling of having your heart outside your body..


You didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.


You didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.


You didn't know that something so small could make you feel so important and happy.





Before you were a Mom,

You had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.


You had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.


You didn't know you were capable of feeling SO much....
                               
          Before you were a MOM!






HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!
