Happy Mother’s Day

Becoming a Mother is the most precious gift from God. She is the one who not only nurtures her children, but also love them unconditionally. She is the best teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. In fact, mother is respected so much that it is also said that after becoming a mother, a woman becomes complete.

My babies are the world to me… and with them I am complete….

Before I was a Mom

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, or 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.

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.

    life sure was easier before i was a mom, but i wouldnt trade a minute of it.that picture of your girls made me grin, they are so adorable, your oldest has her mama’s smile.the holding a child down while at the dr’s made me remember when meg was only a year, she did her first jump off furniture, right on the edge of a coffee table, i rushed her to the dr and i have to say i dont know what was worse being told i couldnt go in with her,but my sister could?! or if they would of let me in there to try to hold her down.all i could do was bite my finger nails off and cry like a baby myself, i know why the dr kept me out, he knew how hard it would be for me , and i think he was right, but i am glad my sister was allowed in to help calm her, it took 10 dang adults to hold down a one year old lil girl!! and she still has that fighting spirit, i am one proud mom of the way my meg grew up .

  4. Maybe it’s the pregnancy hormones, but that made me cry,lol
