A Song for Me Today

Happy Anniversary To Me.
Happy Anniversary To Me.

Happpppy Annnniverrrsssary Tooo Meeee!
Happy Anniversary To Me.

Today I have been married for 5 years, And my husband forgot!!! It has been a wonderful 5 years with lots of good memories, and 2 very special blessings from God. I look forwarded to next 5 years, everyone says if you make it 7 years you will have it made. Can't wait to see what the next 5 years hold, maybe their will be more blessing, or maybe not, who knows? We will have to wait and see what they hold.

And my husband is working out of town with Creeddaddy so I guess he has an excuse for fogetting, or maybe not. So here is to me and some fun tonight on my anniversary.

My boss sent us this poem today by email 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 .

May you always be overwhelmed by the Grace of God rather than by the cares of life
