So many friends are new mommies or mommies-to-be these past several and future months!

Here's a cute Mother's Day poem I can officially relate to. ;) Happy (early) Mother's Day!

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.

Send this to someone who you think is an awesome Mom!

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