I don’t want to let you know how perfect you are, today. I have done that quite often. Today, I want to show you your flaws.
You are just poor, poor in taking care of your own self. You are quite incapable of realizing what you are worth. You have absolutely no clue about how amazing you are. And yes, you try so hard to call yourself beautiful but you are miserable there as well! You are extremely selfish, always having your children right at the top of your priority list, totally forgetting about your mom’s child! And no matter how much you practice, not once can you cook food that is average when it comes to taste. Seriously you are pretty bad at that. Do you even remember to do stuff only to make yourself happy sometimes? I don’t like this forgetful attitude of yours. Your greatest flaw is that you do not give yourself the respect you deserve. When it comes to standing up for your interests for a change, especially against the wishes of your family, you couldn’t be worse! I could just ramble on but I guess this is enough...
So mom, do you realize there’s so much you need to work on? You need to make some efforts and rectify this. You are far from perfect you see. Promise me you will try to be better?
Love you loads..
P.S.- It is those imperfections I mentioned above, that make you the most incredible person to have ever lived on earth! You just need to start loving yourself the way I love you. That’s all you need! I'm always there to help you be better!
I have seen you fight a lot of battles in life. I have seen you fight for your place in the queue during my school admissions. I have seen you fight for discipline while standing outside the fee submission window in my college. I have seen you fight for my safety in public places. I have seen you fight for justice when you knew I was right. I have seen you fight with dad to fulfil my wishes. I have seen you fight with me, to make me a better person. I have seen you fight for what’s right, no matter who the person you are standing against is.
But you have put up the greatest fight with cancer, an occurrence that challenged you deep down to your very core, a condition that threatened to take your life away. I have seen you fight with excruciating pain, discomfort, fever, nausea, weakness, physical changes, inability to do everyday chores. I have seen you fight with hopelessness, defeat and misery. I have seen you fight with long troubling hours at the hospital bed. I have seen you fight with that natural urge to give up.
But you have been a fighter all this time, whether weak or strong. You have fought the obstacles, with smiles and tears both. You have braved every possible odd to emerge victorious. I have seen you fight with yourself in what I would say has been the toughest exam you have taken so far.
You have been a winner, a survivor, a victor! I take this occasion to admire my hero! I know when I have you nothing can bring me down ever. Stay healthy & blessed! Love you...
I have always believed it’s blasphemous to assign just one day to celebrate you! Each moment of my life, each breath of mine, is a celebration of you, for I am because you are. Nonetheless, on the occasion of Mother’s day, I would love to raise a toast to you!
Here’s to our unending talks, our meaningless banter, my random giggles and your rolling eyes, my funny stories and your face palms, your overprotective nature when it comes to your kids, your fears, your scolding, your unbelievably selfless shower of love, your sometimes-funny-and-sometimes-lame jokes :P, the secrets we share, the laughter that echoes when we are together, the tears we witness rolling down each others’ eyes quite often, the mischief we have indulged in, our arguments, the best-in-the-world food that you make, the special treatment you give me when I come home every weekend, the sacrifices you make for us, some huge some petty but equally touching, the lessons you have taught us, some from the school books and some from the book that we all call life...
Here’s to your melodrama every time you want me to agree to something I am not in favor of, your emotionally blackmailing me to have your way and having the same from me when it’s my turn, our connect that is deeper than anything else in this whole wide world...
Here’s to our rapport that people are sometimes quite jealous of, our friendship, the transparency that’s the fundamental basis of our bond...
Here’s to the bestest mommy that will ever be, & to the nearly bestest daughter (I am picking up don’t you worry!) haha! Here’s to us! Cheers...
Love you always and forever!
