Before I was a Mom...

Thanks to my new friend here in Singapore MELANIE... I got hit and it never felt so good.

Here is how it works: Once you have been hit, you have to hit 5 awesome Moms.

My hit is for Renee, Shelly, Cassidy, Whitney, Jenni, Jenn, Sheridan, Laura, Melanie, Denise, Katy, Suzanne, Julie, Nana, ViVi, Grandma, Great Grandma, Alaina, Kara, Kathy, Betty Merrill, Marcie, Ashley, Lynette, Soraya, Jane, Lesley, Christina,Valerie, Sarah, Erin, Tonya, Lisa, Cara, Jordan, Corrie, Lindsay, Emily, Mandy, Jenny, Kim and anyone that is reading this blog and who is a mom... you ALL deserve it. (You know I could not just put 5 names on this list... if I forgot your name forgive me bc I just took lots of medicine to get rid of this cold.)

So hit 5 (good luck) awesome moms on your friends list to let them know they are awesome!

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.

I also want to acknowledge all the moms that will never be able to hold their babies here on earth, for all the moms that long to hold a baby to of their own, and for all the moms that willingly fought for a child to call their own... We ALL deserve this day!
