My Mom

While reading the viewer’s entries for Mother’s day, I felt that I also wanted to share a little about my mother. It has been 15 years since she passed away, yet I constantly feel her presence around me, guiding me and mostly, putting a smile on my face.

I am a mom of two and a grandmother of four. But while my mom was alive, I felt very much like a kid around her. She would every now and then, remind me to “grow up” and I miss that very much. Some would say that as you age, your mom becomes more of a friend. But for me, I wanted her to be my mother, always! No matter how much I aged, I cherished and loved the feeling of being a child in her company.

She was an amazing mother; very loving, caring and giving. She had an air of magic in her as she spoke. Her greatest talent was that she would make you feel really good about your own self. One touch or look from her, and you felt something very special inside. I try very hard to be like my mom, but it’s a tough act to follow.

I love you mom.

  3. What a beautiful post about your mum. Thank you for sharing.

    Talking of mom’s…I was wondering if you could make a series for
    Moms-To-be…Indian food recommendations and recipes.
    Girls who are far away from home will really appreciated that.

  4. Hello,
    Only someone who miss their mom knows, feels and understand the spiritual relationship. My mom and I did not have a great relationship as she was too busy and tired to take care of us. After she passed away, and in reflection, I begin to understand and I miss her dearly. Your article reminds me of this affection, and I think and wish her to be relax and happy, wherever she may be. I love her too and it is too late to hear her response, but I tell her anyway when I go for walks in the woods, I talk to her and wish her well.

  5. Like you, my mother made her transition over 10 years ago. She laid the foundation for my spiritual development. A woman whose kindness, love
    and compassion saw no boundaries. A woman who never had a bad word
    for anyone. I once read, “GOD made mothers so humans would know
    what unconditional love really means.” I thank GOD for allowing me to
    get a glimpse of his never ending love through my mother.

    Ms. Manjula, your wonderful words honoring your mother reflects her
    continued presence in your life. I am sure she is pleased. Peace

  6. Manjula,
    I feel about my mom like you feel about yours. She has gone 31 years ago, and I feel she has never be far from my spirit.
    Thank you to share this lovelly feeling between you and your mother!
