Happy Mother's Day !!

Before I was a Mom  , 
I never tripped over  toys 
or forgot words to a  lullaby. 
I didn't worry whether or  not 
my plants were  poisonous. 
I never thought about  immunizations.

Before I  was a Mom , 
I had never been puked  on. 
Pooped on. 
Chewed  on. 
Peed on. 
I had complete  control of my mind 
and my  thoughts. 
I slept all  night.

Before I was a Mom  , 
I never held down a screaming  child 
so doctors could do  tests. 
Or give shots. 
I never  looked into teary eyes and cried. 
I  never got gloriously happy over a simple  grin. 
I never sat up late hours at  night 
watching a baby  sleep.

Before I was a Mom  , 
I never held a sleeping  baby just because 
I didn't want to put  her down. 
I never felt my heart break  into a million pieces 
when I couldn't  stop the hurt. 
I never knew that  something so small 
could affect my life  so much. 
I never knew  that I could love someone so much. 
I  never knew I would love being a Mom  .

Before I was a Mom  , 
I didn't know the feeling  of 
having my heart outside my  body.. 
I didn't know how special it  could feel 
to feed a hungry  baby. 
I didn't know that  bond 
between a mother and her  child. 
I didn't know that something so  small 
could make me feel so important  and happy.

Before I was a Mom  , 
I had never gotten up in the  middle of the night 
every 10 minutes to  make sure all was okay. 
I had never  known the warmth, 
the joy, 
the  love, 
the heartache, 
the  wonderment 
or the satisfaction of being  a Mom  
I didn't know I was capable of  feeling so much, 
before I was a  Mom .
To all my mommy friends I wish you a very Happy Mother's Day and to all the ladies who so badly want to be mommy's I hope your dream comes true soon !!
