Me & my Ma

Mothers are a blessing of god, though we all love our mother, but their real value we realise only after becoming a mother.My mom is an inspiration to me in so many thing,,the way she wants perfection in everything, whereas I want to complete everything fast:),then the enthu she has for everything..no short cuts for her, though she has been restricted by her bad health, still she cant go out with out everything in a proper way..the way she keeps her things so neatly and puts them properly in place despite her falling eyesight,She cant do walking but still she does yoga everyday for one hour without fail.
Sometimes I wonder why we start finding faults in everything our parents do..is it by nature or a period comes in life when we get irritated by their presence.
If grandparents indulge..then they are spoiling the child,
But if they discipline, then its not their job to do so, its for parents,
If they advice, then it is interference in their life, and if they keep quite then they dont love us, they are indifferent.
Whenever something wrong happens, its their fault, they made us that way and if we do well, its our capabilities.
When we need them, they should be available, but when they need us, either we are busy or parents shouldnt cling.
Parents never think twice before spending on children, but for children their expenditure is always extra..a burden on their budget.
Living with children is a delight to all parents, whereas living with parents is loosing the privacy, freedom.
Parents want to give the maximum and best to children, whereas children want to do the minimum possible.
All the effort to maintain a relationship or decorum comes from the parents only, children are least bothered.
Parents are not supposed to advice, but children advice the parents all the time..you shouldt say this thing, you should nt do that..........................
On this mother's day, I request all children, that instead of going hyper for one day only, learn the values forever.Parents need our love and respect both, not because they are intelligent or very sensible or very caring but because they are PARENTS. Show them that you have some values intact.Dont ask parents to make adjustments, its not their age to do that, they have done their part, now its their time to take, its your time to pay back. Try to see good in them instead of finding faults.Give them the respect due to them, care they need.God has given them the right to scold you, correct you, but not to you, so refrain from talking rudely.
Some people say the things which should never be said and then they try to say that temper got better of them, but tell me has it ever happened with your professional colleague or boss, .No thats not an excuse to be uncivil...the most a parent needs is the company of a child. and a .pleasant company,loneliness is the biggest problem, give them time.Appreciate them, help them in their hobbies, dont criticise them.They need to feel important, part of family they brought in this world,so show them that they are important to you.They wouldnt be here forever.
( Of course some mothers also behave very difficult, but about that on children's day:)..this is their day..so no negativity)
Is it really that difficult to keep two people happy? Their blessings only bring all round happiness in our life.
I would not say happy mother's day..it doesnt mean anything much, as its not bday or anniv, which we celebrate on a fixed day...mothers should be feted all year, all our life. I feel sad that I havent done much for my mom, sometimes due to circumstances, and sometimes due to ignorance, but now I try to do my best whatever i can, even then I cant claim to be a very good daughter, but efforts are on:), But I love her very much and feel blessed to have her in my life.
