Happy Mother's Day to me!
What a wonderful day to celebrate! The joys of mommyhood! 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 . Author Unknown "Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs... since the payment is pure love." - Mildred B. Vermont I am so proud and honored to be called a Mommy! It is only because of our precious birth mom that I can have this title. Thank you A.! We appreciate you so much and what you have given us! You gave us the world! Before you were conceived I wanted you Before you were born I loved you Before you were here an hour I would die for you This is the miracle of life.- Maureen Hawkins Yesterday was technically the day to celebrate her - it is called Birth Mother's day. The day before Mother's Day so that they can get recognition. I am so glad someone thought of that! Being a mother has made my life complete.- Darcy Bussell The bible has a lot to say about mothers, but this is one thing from the bible that I long for - Her children arise up, and call her blessed.- Proverbs 31:28 What is more precious than that? I stand on this promise - He makes the barren woman to be a homemaker and a joyful mother of children. Praise the Lord! Psalm 113:9 (Amplified) Happy Mother's Day!!
