    Before I was a Mom

    I made and ate hot meals.

    I had unstained clothing.

    I had quiet conversations on the phone.

    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 lullabies.

    Before I was a Mom

    I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.

    Before I was a Mom

    I had never been puked on

    Pooped on Spit on Chewed on Peed on
    Or pinched by tiny fingers

    Before I was a Mom

    I had complete control of

    My thoughts
    My body
    And my mind.

    I slept all night.

    Before I was a Mom

    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.

    Awesome. As a single Dad, I understand that completely.

    That was beautiful. Is that your writing?

    Fab [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] That was great! As a single dad I know where you're comin' from. My 2 kids are the most important things to me in my life. SEVERAL months back - I had a heartattack. Ask some of the people in non/music about the letter my 6 yr. old daughter wrote to let everyone here know.

    Is that still kickin' around Jeff? I'd love to read it.
    Hope the health is ok Bro.
    I had a similar situation in September where I was hospitalized seriously. My daughter's only two but her reaction of pure joy and unconditional love upon seeing me after three weeks still makes me cry.

    jdogg - i don't know if you can pull it out but I think it was titled "A letter from Lauren5150". All is pretty cloudy now. One of the mods might be of help - especially DIF OR Seenbad.

    That is amazing...

    Jeff, you're a lucky Dad man. Lauren sounds like a fantastic kid.

    If anyone EVER wants to know why they should choose the links...show them that incredible thread. We all bitch and whine but never lose sight of the truly important things in life.

    Thanks seenbad.
