(before.i.was.a.mom)

It's definitely been a "non-three ring circus" kinda day! This Mother's Day could not have been any better. I am blessed beyond measure. I came across an email the other day. It was one of those emails that you get 348 of a day that says "send this to x amount of people or you'll have bad luck" or something... I never actually read them, but this one caught my eye. (Sorry, if you are one of the people that send those...) 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 him 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 .



Here is a small glimpse of the awesome card I got! Thank you, Jason. It was extremely thoughtful of you.... Love you.
