Before I was a Mom

Remember the "before kids" days? It's amazing how life changes after a little one comes along. We are never the same! Life was great when it was just James and I. Now, life is GRAND with our two boys. I dedicate this poem I wrote sometime back to all you momma's. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!


Before I was a mom I used to look forward to sleeping in
I stayed out late with my hubby and to bed come creeping in
Before I was a mom I used to have so much free time to myself
Go walking, watch TV, take a nap or read a book from the shelf

Before I was a mom I used to think "What can I do for fun?"
Hang out with friends, go shopping, or lay under the sun?
Before I was a mom my husband and I were the dynamic duo
My best friend, the love of my life and my hero

THEN……came our two boys.

Before I was a mom I thought I knew how to love
Then self sacrifice taught me to love like God above
Before I was a mom discipline was a only a one way street
Now I realize it is where truth, love and security meet

Before I was a mom I’d been told and heard the words “I love you”
But not quite the same way I hear them now from my special two
Before I was a mom I never knew the immense joy of seeing a smile
That could melt my heart and lift me through the daily trials

Before I was a mom I thought I knew how to love
But that was..…..before I was a mom
