Happy Mother's Day

A friend sent this to me today, I wanted to share it with everyone. Happy Mother's Day!!


Being a Mother

Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to 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 by instinct
.... 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 "good" mothers never raise their voices
....somebody never came out the back door just in time to see her child hit a golf ball through the neighbor's kitchen window.

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 a mother can find all the answers to her child-rearing questions in the books
....somebody never had a child stuff beans up his nose or in his ears.

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 do her job with her eyes closed and one hand tied behind her back
...somebody never organized seven giggling Brownies to sell
cookies.

Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets married
....somebody doesn't know that marriage 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.

Proudly Canadian, however, missing the West Coast, I currently live in the prairies watching the farmers fields produce as I learn how God produces the fruits in me.
