Before I was a mom…

I can’t take credit for the following…it came from someone else, but the part about feeling your heart outside your body…I’ve never heard it expressed that way before…

Before I was a Mom –
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 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 how much my mom loved me, until I was a mom myself.

H is 14 1/2 years old, going on 21, but I still feel the wonder and awe of being her mom.

  1. The poem warms my heart. The feeling is sooooo true! I feel the same four-fold since I have four children of my own who are all grown up now.
