My mom is super-mom! Growing up (and even now!) I used to wish I could be like her.. she knows everything and she has eyes everywhere! 😀
I have these childhood images of all four us sitting on the terrace every Sunday morning and she would be oiling our hair; our tiffins will always have something interesting and not the usual parantha-achaar like most other students; I remember her holding me close when we used to travel in bus to her office; I remember asking for “something nice” to eat and always been surprised; I remember her tirelessly making clothes for all the kids in the family; I remember the homemade jams and ketchups; I remember all the besan ke laddoos she sent with me back to hostel and which my friends finished in no time; I remember how she taught me cooking over phone; I remember how even now when I go home she never sits for one minute but is always thinking of what special to make for us… I remember everything and I miss everything… I wish life was such that we could always be close to them
No matter how much I trouble you by saying that you love didi more.. I know you love us equally! This is just my way of getting more attention ;).
You’ve been a mother, a friend, a pillar of strength. we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve played, we’ve fought. You’ve always known me, there was never a reason (or even a chance!) to hide.. and I’m sorry for all the pain I might have caused and I know I’m forgiven and I know you’ll always love me unconditionally..
Happy Mother’s Day .. today and everyday
