Mother, a Word That Means the World to Me

Somewhere once I read these lines, “Mother, a word that means the world to me.” They rang so true when I read them and they still ring so true today. I love being a Mom, ok..some days are super hard, but I wouldn’t trade the good moments, the joyful moments, the peaceful moments with my kids for all the bad moments in the world. I love Mother’s Day because it helps to remind me to focus on the things I LOVE about being a mom instead of the things I don’t. It is a chance to set aside my to do list for the day and just play with my kids and enjoy all the little surprises they and their dad have cooked up. Being a Mother is awesome, it is definitely a word that means a lot to me.

Mothers Day

 I Love my mom. She is fantastic and is another reason that the word Mother is so meaningful. Just look at her cute smiling face with all the grand babies gathered around. Today is also so wonderful because it gives me the opportunity to think about her and all the reasons that I am so thankful she is my mom. I love you mom!!

My Mom

To all those Mother’s out there of any kind, whether you have kids, or nieces, or you are a teacher or a mentor or a friend. Mothering comes in all shapes and sizes and it takes all kinds.

Happy Mother’s Day to you!

 

Here is a little poem for you today, I know it is a little cheesy, but I love it all the same, it always touches that warm fuzzy place in my heart.

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.
