Mother's Day 05/10/09

A Very Happy Mother’s Day To all my Readers and Followers.

"The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new." - Rajneesh

It’s a day for each family to honor and celebrate their Mother. “Mathru Devo bhava” – Mother is a form of God, she is also the first teacher – “pradhama guruvu”.

The values and discipline that are instilled in us help to get through the obstacles and hurdles in life. The heart of a Mother can shower unconditional love, which always gives, without expecting anything back in return and most forgiving of anything. It’s a matter of the heart, where conversations with mothers always take place in silence.

It is the most fulfilling and rewarding job is the whole world.

A well wisher, friend, critic, provider, disciplinarian, a teacher:- lot of caps that can be worn according to the situation. A Mother’s presence is comforting and her confidence is reassuring and fulfilling. A person who can put the needs of her children before hers always.

I am writing this about mothering and specially my mother. My mother had immense patience, she was cool and composed like a solid rock. Growing up, my father travelled a lot around the world; she held the fort tight for us. BTW, I am the eldest of three, have a brother and sister who are married and settled in America and parents themselves.

Later when I became a mother myself and maturing emotionally, there were many times when I felt I should have helped her out more or even said Sorry or Thankyou innumerable times and be more appreciative of her. Guess it is never too late! All the sacrifices they had to make for us to be here today.

For Zebra's to recognize their babies, because all zebra's have stripe patterns, the mom memorizes the babies stripe pattern and that way she can tell her baby from the others. A Mother’s heart has unbiased love for every child.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish my Mother, Mother-in-law, Aunts, Sister, Sister-in-law, Cousins and Friends a Very Happy Mother’s Day.

Well, as far as food blog is concerned, my kitchen was closed for the weekend, my family treated me to a super spread buffet at Rasoi in Edison.
