A few years ago, Mothers day wasn’t even celebrated in India. But now we do. While everyone is busy looking for gifts for their mom and thinking of ways to make her day special, I realize all that she might want from us is our love.
I remember so many wonderful things she did. People tell me that I am blessed with a talent. But it isn’t just that. I used to watch my mom paint. She used to take fabric painting classes at the time where she had to drop me to kindergarten. She didn’t waste her time just waiting. I’ve seen her be creative in so many ways. She did a beautiful nib painting piece over velvet, She made art over metal (I don’t know what it is called), cross-stitch art, knitted tablecloths and so much more. I learnt how to bake my first cake from her. I think I learnt it all from her.
She convinced dad to sell her dream house when we were in financial trouble, she taught me how to handle certain situations around perverts in public places, she taught me some social skills(I used to be very reserved). I can share all my problems with her. She is my best friend.
I love you Mom. Happy Mothers day.
P.S Not to forget, just a phone call to wish my Mother-in-Law ‘ Happy Mothers Day’ made her so very happy.
