I have taken some folks for granted. This includes my family, some of my very close friends.
But, isn’t it how, relationships work?
Lately, I have realized the kind of sacrifice, unconditional love, one person has bestowed, to make my life beautiful, in every aspect.
And yes, there is just one person in this entire universe, who has seen the best and worst of me.
She remained elated, if I listened to her intently and made her proud.
She would gleefully cheer me on, when I was low.
She has been severely bruised with my words, actions at several instances.
She would still wear a smile, even when things were broken for her.
She is one of the smartest, talented, hard working women I know of and probably the nicest person I know of.
She holds a child-like enthusiasm to explore and learn, every single day.
She’d go out of her way to make life easy for others.
She’s a blessing to everyone around her.
This she is my amma, friend, guru, family and sometimes, my foe.
She adorned several roles such as a daughter, sister, wife, daughter in law, colleague, friend. But, she did best as my mother.
I am extremely lucky to have you in my life. And, for all the good things you’ve passed on to me, either through genes or through your actions, words can’t express my gratitude.
P.S: Now that, I had spoken so well about you, can we please fight? 🙂
