Photo a Day Challenge: Mother

May 17, 2013

I have never really written a public thing for my mother. It has always been a letter to her or a letter about her to myself or even a conversation about her with myself in the mirror. This is the first time.

Day 12: My mother is my biggest strength on this planet, closely followed by my father, sister and the dearest husband. She is a crazy, highly energetic, loud, emotional and a very endearing woman. Her strength is what legends are made of. I probably get the mad, loud, emotional part from her followed by my dad’s will to succeed.

Mumma, as I like to call her, has been my support all my life. She has always stood by my side through mistakes, successes  challenges and every little step I took in my life, always pushing me to do my best. Her creativity inspires me, her love for life amazes me, her emotional strength keeps my family together. I haven’t known any other woman who has the kind of zest for life, like she has. I am probably tearing up as I write this because she is so far away from me.. but I can’t imagine a day of my life without listening to her laughing voice.

My initial years, especially the troublesome teens were not so beautiful. Mumma was strict with me and there were times that I hated her most. But now when I am older and probably wiser, I look back at all those moments and thank God for making my mother so strict and vigil. It is because of those instances that I am the person today. I have patience, strength and an emotional quotient that is only possible if your mother has put ALL of herself in to raising you.

I will always be indebted to her for the life that I have today, the unconditional love, the unending support and the forever cheer. If you are lucky to have met her or meet her in future, you will never know that she is of the age she is because she looks 10-15 years younger… her energy is 10 times mine and is the best dressed person in the room.

So here is to you, Mumma, you are my rock and the most amazing woman I know! Love you loads…
