Happy Mother's Day!!

I just want to wish all you moms, and future moms a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!! What a WONDERFUL day! I think this is better than my birthday! :)

And to MY mom........ I love you so much. And I'm so grateful to you for everything you do for me and my brothers and sisters. Now being a mother myself, I can truly appreciate those little things. I'm thankful that I have such a great friend in you. You are a great example of a wonderful mother. And you are such an awesome grandma to Cohen!! I know that you love him so much, and you can see he truly loves you too. I hope you have a wonderful day, I just wish we could be there with you. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!

Here is something I got from a good friend in an e-mail, and I thought I would share it with all of you!

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. 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 and happy.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 .
