I think of the word "mother", and yeah instantly I think patience, comfort, love, hot yummy food, tolerance, compassion, brave, strong, honest, hardwork, wonderful daughter, great friend , music, flowers and yes bolts of fabric :) That's my awesome Mother - Roopa.
Isn't she gorgeous...growing up I never realized how precious she is to me till I began to understand what it really is to be a mother...kids are quite a handful and they push you to the limit. Though am not a mother myself, but at 33 I do get a fair idea what it is to be one. I've been a tough kid in school, in my teens and even after I got married. As an adult I plan to let you know just how thankful I am to you.
That's a picture of Roopa and me on my first birthday
Thank you Roopa!
That's the three of us
At this stage of my life, I now see you so differently and oh no! yours isn't the easiest job no! I now see all the hard times, the challenges, the sacrifices, yes I see it all and I know I'll be all of you one day! Its an honour to be a mother and, Roopa an honour to be called your daughter. I love you and miss you tons. I slowly realize by the day that, I am all that I am cause you are all that you are :):)
That's Roopa with her third daughter, Chui. I know she misses Roopa the most up there
You are such an inspiration especially when I see the lovely daughter you are to your eighty-five year old mother. Love you Roopa, loads and loads of uuuuuummmmmaaaas.
Happy Mother's day!
