Mother's Day 2010 (A Little Late)

Happy Mother's Day to all my mommy friends!!
Last year I received this email and saved it because I wanted to put it on my blog only with pictures of MY little one. I just love it because it is sooo true. Enjoy!
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.

Before I was a Mom,
I don'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 Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never know 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.
A note to my mom:
Happy Mother's Day! I am the mother I am today because of you. Thank you for teaching me how to do what needs to be done to get through the day. You are my rock and I love you more than you will ever know! -Sis
