    HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!



    Before I was a Mom

    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 it down.
    I never felt my heart break in to 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.



    And before I was a Grandma, I didn't know that all those "Mom" feelings
    more than doubled when you see that little bundle being held by "your
    baby"...
    And before I was a Grandma I didn't think that having a hurt grandchild was
    any different than having a hurt child, only to realize that is it much much
    worse, because not only do you have to watch your grandchild go through it,
    but also your child!

    Send this to someone who you think is a special Mom or Grandma. I just did!

    And remember that behind every successful mother... Is a basket of dirty
    laundry.
