Mother’s Day has always held bittersweet memories for me; mainly because it often falls either close to or on the day my dad passed away. So while I find moments to reflect on my mother and her life, I also find time to reflect on the life of my dad. It is quite an interesting lesson to be reminded that we can celebrate both life and death in the same breath. My Mother was a complex, fiery and very determined woman and my memories of her are filled with stories that would make you roar with laughter and wince with pain; but that is what helps us build memories around every human life… Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom and to all moms!

One of the best gifts our mothers have given us is the gift of life and that is important to remember. Our mothers also leave us memories that add to our narratives of their lives. I remember once when my Mom entered a singing competition on TV, something to do with who could make the sound “ohhhh” the longest, and I believe she either won or came a close second. My siblings and I were mortified ( teasing classmates syndrome ;-)) yet thoroughly fascinated by her daring nature. It was something that might seem innocuous today, but not so common for a married woman, back in the day. One thing I can say for sure is that there was never a dull moment around my mother as she made sure to sprinkle our lives with lots of memories… and her special brand of love.
For Mother’s Day, I send happy cheers and blessings to all Mothers everywhere. If your memories are happy, so-so or sad, know that your life is a celebration and for that we must be thankful to our Mothers. Go sprinkle some love and joy on your mom and/or all the women who nurtured you! 🙂
What are your thoughts? What memories do you hold of your mother? How do you celebrate Mother’s Day? Do share. Thank You! 🙂
