      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 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.—Unknown

      May you always be overwhelmed by the Grace of God rather than by the cares of life.
