Before I was a Mum…

I received this Message below from a close friend who believes in being a Mum and that it is a wonderful blessing that she gives thanks for daily.
 
 
 Before I was a Mum…
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 Mum…
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 Mum…
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 Mum…
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.

“!END”

 

 
 
Before I was a Mum…
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 Mum.

Before I was a Mum…
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 something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

        I didn’t know that bond between a Mother and her Child.

Before I was a Mum…
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 Mum.
I didn’t know I was capable of feeling so much…

 Before I was a… Mum

 
 Behind every successful Mother…
Is a basket full of Pride and Joy and many Prayers.
