Celebrating Mother's love this Mother's Day

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I am sure you might be scratching your heads on how to make it extremely special for your dear mother who has always been by your side when you were learning to ‘Struggle, smile and stay’ in this tough journey called ‘life’. This day is indeed a mark of celebration for the feminine’s and salutes motherhood, reminding us about the unconditional love a mother showers on her child without the slightest expectations.     

Mothers Day CelebrationFood for thought
Let me share a beautiful story with you or let’s frame it the other day, let me give you food for thought for the day. On a serene and calm evening, a young lad, around 12 years of age, was sitting by his mother. He asked her age when he was born. The mom puzzled at her child’s question replied, ‘25’. (Well you could assume your mom’s age at the time you were born). The lad promptly said, “Don’t you think mom, we missed 25 years together! That’s almost double my age”.

I am pretty sure you might be wondering about the lovely time you must have missed spending with your mom. In today’s world of cut throat competition, we are so engrossed in our lives that we miss many beautiful moments with our moms, let alone the years we spend being away from them. But reminding her how special she is to you, by simply telling her how much you love her makes up for all the times when you must have been away from her.

Your mother, your best friend
I believe, as a teenager I shared the strongest bond with my mother. More than a mother, she was a friend to me. She was never too nosey about what I did or wherever I went and with the changing times, every mother has understood the space a child needs when he transforms into an adolescent. I remember, at a certain stage of time, when I was coping with a break up, she took the role of a best friend when almost all of my friends had deserted me. Had it not been for her, it would have been next to impossible for me to overcome the pain and agony at that time. When I look back, I yearn for going back in time, not to set things right in my life but to change myself for having caused her so much disappointment. Today, whatever I am, the kind of person I am, I owe it all to her.

As a kid, we are innocent; as a teenager, we are rebellious. Your friends might desert you and others may try to mould you for their good; but in the end, it’s your mom who will want to change you for good. As a teenager I loved Sylvester Stallone and I would love to recall his popular dialogue from the movie ‘Rocky Balboa’ : “It’s not about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. It’s about how hard you can take and keep moving forward”. Well, after my mom and I went for this movie together, she would make a point to narrate this quote to me whenever I found it tough to work towards my dreams. Had it not been for her, I would have never realized my dreams and goals. My mom has made me learn how to live a good life and in a positive manner. She has taught me how beautiful this life can be and I wish I can continue to live up her ideals when I take up her role.

Mothers Day GiftsMaking Mother’s day special
Well, making mother’s day special isn’t rocket science. Moms have a golden heart which melts even if you do anything trivial for them (nothing exists for them which is ‘trivial’ by the way!). Here are a few sweet and simple ideas that your mom will cherish:

1. Prepare the dinner for the day. Scour the internet and search for her favorite food’s recipe. If you think you will fail this task, you can simply scroll down to the next idea.

2. If creativity is your forte, you can present her with a picture collage. You can create a scrapbook and mount your favorite photos giving short and creative titles to every page. This idea can never get outdated.

3. If you happen to live in another town or country, you can always gift her web camera. Today’s moms are smart and tech savvy, so it won’t take her much time to get the hang of it!

So treat your mom the best on this special day. For all your life, she has treated you like a price or princess, so spare a day to treat her like a queen!
