First of all
Let me wish you
A very Happy Mother’s Day
How do I even begin?
You’ve been there for me
Right from day one
From giving birth to me
To raising me as a child
Sending me to school
Supporting me through my teens
Which were frankly some of the most difficult phases
Of my entire life
Educating, counselling, guiding
Scolding, advising, mentoring
Pampering, indulging, providing for
There is nothing you haven’t done for me!
You are not only a parent
But also a friend
And a great one at that!
Of course, we’ve had our fights
And we still do have
There have been times
When I haven’t exactly been an ideal son
But you’ve borne it all
With a patience and fortitude
That even Helga Hufflepuff would’ve been proud of!
Not because you had to
But because of your sheer, unconditional love for me
A love that only a parent can have
For his/her child
And a love that has largely been responsible
For making me the person I am today
Thank you, Amma!
