One thing that you can never rate is the intensity of the relationship with your mother. What makes a mother the mother? She gives birth to a child and promises to watch over, love, nourish and protect the child forever. My equation with my mother is a mix of love, lots of care, sweet arguments and some real quarrels. Most of the times we fight it out on home decor. We are like best friends more than enemies. We discuss, we argue, we scold each other, and we take stand for each other. What I like in my mother is her positive attitude towards pretty much everything. My mother is full of all those good traits that the adults as well as children want. She is a sensitive, smart, emotional and yet a strong woman.
Our relationship is much more than of a mother-daughter relationship, because we share a special share of time that only we can remember for the rest of our lives. This is the most beautiful relationship that you can ever have in your entire life.
I have inherited many qualities from her, such as, she and I both keep the place clean where we live in. Sometimes this cleaning habit creates issues for both of us. We forget where we put our important stuff in our home and then we argue about it with each other. The values that I got from my mother have made the strong foundation of my life. One thing that I have never been able to achieve like my mother is the level tolerance that she has. She suffers a lot everyday but still carries that sweet smile and positive attitude. I can’t do that in my life. I do not have that level of tolerance which she has.
As a daughter, my mother also teaches me, how to tolerate things and how bravely I can manage problems in my future life. The thing is I am not living in a society where girls are only meant to be a housemaker. My society is different from the society which she had while growing up. Every mother gives values to the daughter that she learnt from her mother. It is a typical Indian tradition that very mother-daughter follow. Seeing my mother facing the problems is a torture for me. She faces problems and I feel the heat as if fireballs have been thrown on my body. At times, I play as if I am the mother of my mother and I encourage her to fight for the right.
Sometimes a daughter like me, need a parent not a boyfriend and a friend. When daughter faces big challenges of her life, the only person who helps her is her mother. My mother has always been there for me in such big challenges. As a daughter I know what makes my mother happy so, sometimes I become her toy who brings her smile back on her cute face. Like she loves when I cook something for her. All though, she taught me everything but I love to make her happy by doing some small things for her.
I want to keep her happy always. She is so adorable; she is cuter than a baby. She is my inspiration, she is my strength and she my joy.
iChhori salutes all the mothers! Mothers are not mere human beings, mothers are a feeling, mothers are an emotion, and mothers are LOVE!
