It is true that you never understand a mother's love until you are one yourself. I had that Ah ha moment about 2 years ago and I love every minute of it, even the tough ones. I got this in an e-mail and I thought I would share it.
Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get backto normal after you've had a baby.... somebody doesn't know that once you're a mother, 'normal' is history.
Somebody said you learn how to be a mother byinstinct... somebody never took a three-year-old shopping.
Somebody said being a mother is boring... somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager with a driver's permit.
Somebody said if you're a 'good' mother, your child will 'turn out good'.... somebody thinks a child comes with directions and a guarantee.
Somebody said you don't need an education to be a mother.... somebody never helped a fourth grader with his math.
Somebody said you can't love the second child as much as you love the first .... somebody doesn't have two children.
Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery.... somebody never watched her 'baby' get on the bus for the first day of kindergarten ..... or on a plane headed for military 'boot camp.'
Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets married....somebody doesn't know tha tmarriage adds a new son or daughter-in-law to a mother's heartstrings.
Somebody said a mother's job is done when her last child leaves home.... somebody never had grandchildren.
Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so you don't need to tell her.... somebody isn't a mother.
On this Mother's day show your mom you care and make sure that she knows you love her. Thanks mom!
