Mother

While plodding on your way
The toilsome road of life
How few the friends that daily there you meet
Not many will stand by
In trouble and in strife
With counsel and affection ever sweet.
But there is one whose smile
Will ever on you beam
Whose love is dearer far than any other
And wherever you may turn
This lesson you shall learn
A girl’s best friend is her mother.
Then cherish her with care
And smooth her silvery hair
When gone – you’ll never get another
And wherever you may turn
This lesson you shall learn
A girl’s best friend is her mother
Though all the world may frown
And every friend depart
She will never forsake you in your need
Your refuge evermore
Is still within her heart
For you her loving sympathy will plead
Her pure and gentle smile
Will ever cheer your way
Her love is sweeter far than any other.
And wherever you may turn
This lesson you shall learn
A girl’s best friend is her mother.
Then cherish her with care
And smooth her silvery hair
When gone – you’ll never get another
And wherever you may turn
This lesson you shall learn
A girl’s best friend is her mother.

A decade has gone by … since the day you left us. Nevertheless…we feel your presence …in a magical way. We miss you dear mom…but somewhere deep within we believe that you are with us…to bless us…to enthuse us…to guide us.

We feel you in all our little happy moments and small successes. We turn to you for courage in our troubled moments. We have not been lucky to have you with us…but we are blessed to have been born to you…we are blessed to have received the precious gift of love…the love and support that we share amongst us…that which has been nourished and nurtured by you. Thank You Mom!

Here is a lovely poem that I had come across in one of my web trails…it is very close to my heart and echoes my feelings….

While plodding on your way

The toilsome road of life

How few the friends that daily there you meet

Not many will stand by

In trouble and in strife

With counsel and affection ever sweet.

But there is one whose smile

Will ever on you beam

Whose love is dearer far than any other

And wherever you may turn

This lesson you shall learn

A girl’s best friend is her mother.

Then cherish her with care

And smooth her silvery hair

When gone – you’ll never get another

And wherever you may turn

This lesson you shall learn

A girl’s best friend is her mother

Though all the world may frown

And every friend depart

She will never forsake you in your need

Your refuge evermore

Is still within her heart

For you her loving sympathy will plead

Her pure and gentle smile

Will ever cheer your way

Her love is sweeter far than any other.

And wherever you may turn

This lesson you shall learn

A girl’s best friend is her mother.

Then cherish her with care

And smooth her silvery hair

When gone – you’ll never get another

And wherever you may turn

This lesson you shall learn

A girl’s best friend is her mother.

On Mother’s day!

Three cheers to Ammu n Adi…for giving the joys of motherhood…for helping me rediscover my strengths and making life sooooooooo colourful and soooooooo full of life..

Thinking of Mother’s day, my mind is filled with mixed feelings n thoughts…memories of my mom and the memories of my own journey to motherhood. My mom’s simple joys, her struggles and battles..my own little struggle n my joys of being a mother…all at once. Though my mom is no more, I’m sure that she is with us all the time..in our joys..n our struggles..giving support n helping us be better humans. She’s the bond that holds us sisters together n I hope n wish that we remain like this for all times to come…bonding ever more n supporting each other through thick and thin…

Bless us Mom, so that we can live our lives with courage and conviction…just as you would have wanted us to.
