Happy Mother's Day
Before I was a Mom
I stayed up late
I drank pink martini's with my girlfriends
I wore all the latest fashions and
went shopping on weekends.
Before I was a mom, my house was clean
I could read a book without falling asleep.
I slept in on Saturdays and didn't feel guilty.
Before I was a mom, I never held a newborn
cried because it was perfect.
I never grew delirious over the sound of
I never knew I could be so proud of someone
or reaching out to be held.
Before I was a mom I never experienced the
one has for their child.
Or the incredible desire to instill in something
so small a sense of
security and happiness.
Before I was a mom, I never knew how much
joy I could have
because I was a mom.
With love and Mother's Day Wishes to my mom, my mother-in-law, and
to every woman who has been blessed with the precious gift of a child.
