With Mother’s day around, our very dear search engine Google and gift shops are almost flooded with mother’s day cards ,endless gifting ideas from flowers to spa offers to heartfelt notes, you name it and you will have it. Blog post ,parenting sites are filled with touchy writeups on Mother’s, Motherhood advices, thank you notes.(while I was also under process to write one..) But I was just wondering how many Mother’s are actually reading it and are really really happy with those few minutes of celebration , you know like giving those hallmark cards with lovely messages and showering her flowers and then back to pavilion.( I know you are the baby n she will love every gesture of yours but is it that she really wants, I doubt..)
Mother’s day was founded with a very simple idea to express your love and honour to that one person who no matter what, loved you unconditionally..
I don’t remember which movie it was but the dialogue ” Mere pass Maa hai Maa ” is just immortalised in my head and every time I go down the hill,she is the only Savior and Protector. Out of 13,000 thousand words (yeah, as per daily mail and new york times study that’s the average word a women speaks in a day) I guess 6000 times or even more I use to just say Mumma, Mumma khana, Mumma ,if not able to find books , Mumma extra pocket money, Mummy ,Papa ki permission to go out with friends, Mumma homework, Mumma this, Mumma that. Even for what happened wrong , she is the one who is blamed, some day , we forget to take books, it’s because she didn’t kept it,got late for school , it’s because of her. In this entire process of growing up , she is the only one taken for granted ( okay , I agree , many times she has also feeded us with her emotional dialogues like khana khalo nahi to khelne nahi Jana, rat room, crocodile room and what not ,they have all the tricks. No matter how much you eat, you will always remain her kamzoor bachha)
So, this Mother’s day apart from giving all those fancy gifts , let’s do something that really make her happy and proud. Let’s say something we have never said before, let’s express our love..
Here is mine for her..
In this entire process of growing up, schooling, working and getting married, I never took the opportunity to thank you,to express you how much I love you. So, on this Mother’s day I really want to say thank you mommy for all the love, for bearing me patiently ,for ignoring my countless mistakes, for teaching me love and compassion, for telling me to be calm and patient, for being with me always and always, for making me who I am today..
P.S.: We have and we will continue to annoy you ,earlier it was me and siddi ( now it’s both of us plus our partners and yes of course , our partners in crime kuku. We all love you!!!!)
