Before I was a momma...

Before I was a momma,

I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.

I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous and I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a momma,

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 momma,

I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests or give shots.

I never looked into teary eyes and cried...and cried.

I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin or chuckle.

I never sat up late at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a momma,

I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put him down.

I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.

I never knew something so small could affect my life so much.

I never knew that I could love someone so much.

Before I was a momma,

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 especially milk I made myself.

I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.

I didn't know something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a momma,

I had never gotten up in the middle of the night multiple times to make sure all was okay.

And I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a mother.

As I think about this weekend and my first mothers day I look back and reflect on where I am. Now that I am a mommy I am so overwhelmed my the ultimate Grace of God, that I was chosen to be this perfect little guys mommy, and I now know my life's purpose is that I was put on this earth to love him and shield him from any fear or danger. I feel so lucky that he is mine and I am his and I want to spend my life living to be a mommy he is proud of.

A woman becomes a mother when she is pregnant and my what a year it has been. I have met and come closer than ever to some other amazing mommies and I hope you all have a fantastic mothers day I love you and cherish our friendship and your support.
