Before she was a Mom She made and ate hot meals She had unstained clothing She had quiet conversation on the phone Before she was a Mom She slept as late as she wanted And never worried about how late she got into bed She brushed her hair and her teeth everyday Before she was a Mom She cleaned my house each day She never tripped over toys or forgot words to lullabies Before she was a Mom She didn't worry whether or not her plants were poisonous She never thought about immunizations. Before She was a Mom She had never been puked on Pooped on Spit on Chewed on Or pinched by tiny fingers Before She was a Mom She had complete control of her thoughts Her body and her mind She slept all night Before She was a Mom She never held down a screaming child So that doctors could do tests Or give shots. Before She was a Mom She never looked into teary eyes and cried She never got gloriously happy over a simple grin She never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep. Before She was a Mom She never held a sleeping baby just because She didn't want to put it down She never felt her heart break into a million pieces She never knew that something so small Could alter her life so much She never knew that She could love someone so much She never knew she would love being a Mom Before She was a Mom She didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby She didn't know that bond between a Mother and her child She didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important Before She was a Mom She had never gotten up in the middle of the night Every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay She had never known the warmth The joy The heartache The wonderfulness Or the satisfaction of being a Mom She didn't know She was capable of feeling so much before She was a MOM

I love my mom very much. When i was a child i used to quarrel with my mom every day. Not really a big quarrel but just for fun. And she will come to beat me, I will run away. Hehe... Usually mom will not be able to catch me. Even if She caught me, she wont beat. Now its all are past memory. I like to remember those days.

Mother is the sweetest word in the world. If we get trouble or pain we will remember the mother. Mother has given this body by the gace of god. We will always thanks our mother, because she has given this life. Mother is the first teacher to the children. I Love my mother, but she left me two years ago.
