I received something special in the mail today from my mom. Not even thinking about the upcoming ‘mommy’ holiday, I wondered why she had sent me a card. It read:
“To a special mom-to-be. Who knew a love so big could begin so soon? Babies grab a hold of their mommy’s hearts long before they’re born and never let go. Happy Mother’s Day.” Love, Mom & Dad.
Now, if that doesn’t make a hormonal pregnant woman tear up, I don’t know what will!
