Last night while surfing net I came across a video,where a 97 year old Mother was brought to meet sick & ailing 76 year old daughter. It was easy to perceive that the reunion happened after a long time. Both the Mothers who are Grand Mother & Great grand Mother now, shared the same warmth, a very emotional one, that I feel every time I see my mother. “Motherhood has the greatest potential influence in a human being’s life” is something I swear on since the day I stepped in her shoes.
I grew up in a full house, with four of us, it was very difficult for Mum to keep everyone at the same pace. If she was able to sort any one problem, the 2nd among-st us would be ready with some other issue for her to look after. We,siblings had left no stone upturned to make her go mad but she managed the house like an expert without ever loosing her calm but there used to be one particular sentence that she repeated time & time again “you all will understand this chaos, only when you will be parents”.
There are so many things that she told me were sure as hell right. And I still regret not obeying her at that time. Mom always believed & &still follows “early to bed & early to rise,makes one healthy, wealthy & wise” I am not a morning person, only when it is the last option available (yeah, getting up early feels like a task to me) This is one bad habit which I want to change in myself. I have become darn lazy & as a result has put up on weight and both health & mental wealth I can feel getting affected.
My kid has taken from my Mum & he is up pretty early. I want my son to adore me for all good things that will be helpful for him to lead life in a good way just like how I admire my Mum now. I wish I would have obeyed her very early, Mom was always right.
Life does not comes up with a manual, it comes with Mother. My Mum has always been more of a friend to me than being Mother.I share each & every detail with her .There were many situations in life where she has warned me to not to go through, like being friends with certain people.I still went ahead and disobeyed her.As a result I had to go through lots of betrayal & heartbreak as I made some wrong choices of being with certain people. Mom was right, she could sense danger far earlier than I could.
Mom was of opinion that I should choose some other particular field to make it as my career, which will yield good outcome in the long run. I did not paid heed to her request at that time. And today I feel it could have been an altogether different scene. Life would have been on a very different track. Its not bad as of now but it could have been the best if I could have agreed. Mom was right here too.
Through this post I also want to say “SORRY” to Mom, for overlooking what she planned for me and I do repent the wrong decisions that I made in my life.
Thank God, that I obeyed to Mom to have a baby. Motherhood changed lots of things inside me. One thing that did not changed but shifted to a broader zone, that is the love & respect for my her. I hope I am able to do at least 50% of what she has done for all of us.
I just want my kid to read my list of repents on right time, only then he will be able to understand that a Mom is never wrong. She always has the best of things to say, foresee & plan for her kids irrespective of the number(kids) she has. I am sure all my siblings are going to agree on this part….Mom was & Mom is always right.
