On a very special day,with a very beautiful morning just wanted to wish my mother......"HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MOM"....I planned to pamper her with a "spa visit",take her for shopping,bang into the multiplex for the latest movie and finally at the end of the day presenting her with the most expensive,beautiful and cloyingly sentimental mothers day card.....AWWWW...
But...But...But i suddenly realized,did i ever bothered to ask my mom,what she actually wants to get from me!!!!!!!!!.Here are the three letters written by her in the three stages of my life:)
Dearest Golden Apple of my Eye(0-12 years) ,
I thank ALLAH for bringing you into my life. The way you looked at me right after you were born,it is a feeling of fulfillment beyond words.You won’t remember the way I would hold your little feet in my hands, imagining how much bigger than my own feet they will one day grow, and how I will have to let you go.
The way I proudly watched you everywhere we went, Every milestone of yours was a kind of personal victory for me.Your first smile, your first word, your first step.... I was just amazed and once again overwhelmed at what a little miracle you are.
Always take care of yourself.Take part in all the activities that you can, in school. Be enthusiastic,and work hard. It does not matter if you do not qualify. The important thing is to have tried.Keep yourself and your surroundings clean.Be nice and polite to people you meet,but don't let anyone to rule on you.
Remember am always there with you.
Lots of love.mom
My dearest young star,(13-24 years),
Soon it was time for preschool. I prepared you as much as I could for that dreaded first day, but you cried so much and I sat down and cried with you. After the first week you were better adjusted, but I still cried because I did not want to let go.
I cannot believe how quickly you have grown.I remember the way my heart broke and grew a little bigger each time you passed a milestone, watching the sand fall through the hourglass while feeling overjoyed witnessing you expand and grow.
I can just say enjoy every phase of your life before you realise that its gone and stand up for everything what you believe in.Most of all,be a good human being.
Lots of love
MY DEAR ADULT CHILD,(24 and above),
I sometimes just cannot believe that just the other day, you were a baby, needing me for everything. Now, sometimes, it is me who needs you.
Please try to call me twice a week.Speak to me. Tell me about your work. I may not understand all that you do, but I like listening to you.
All i can say is,,,,, Thank you! You have made my life worthwhile! God bless you!
