Mother's Day...and Mom's Little Helper

I'm giving this to you a day early because tomorrow I'll be busy all day!

Happy Mothers Day to all you special MOMS!!

Before I was a Mom...

I slept as late as I wanted and never worried about how late I got into bed.

I brushed my hair and my teeth everyday.

Before I was a Mom...

I cleaned my house each day.

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. Spit 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 that 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 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.

And before I was a Grandma...

I didn't know that all those "Mom" feelings more than doubled!

Send this to someone who you think is a special Mom or Grandma.

"I'll help Mom and she won't even have to start the machine on her special day!"

    Happy Mother's Day, Bonnie. Liked the picture. It's a good example of how people washed dishes before electricity!

    Happy Mothers Day, Bonnie.
    That made my eyes a little misty. It would be cool if everyone could know the feelings of motherhood, even and especialy the men. :D

    May you have a special day.

    God bless.
