Can a Mother be addressed as “JUST A MOTHER?
Can a Mother be addressed as “JUST A MOTHER?” Definitely not, is what I would say. A Mother adorns various roles throughout her wonderful journey. She is a complex personality who can single handedly manage every role by weaving them with the gentle thread of heavenly love.

I am a mother myself with two wonderful children. But before I talk about my journey it wouldn’t be fair if I don’t talk about my mother first.
This is probably the first time I am writing about my mother. My mother has been there for me always no matter what. I still remember my childhood days when she used to hold my hands and take me to school, cook tasty meals, help me with my lessons and play those silly games with me. She had quite a few obstacles in her life but never did she let that affect my happiness. She did everything that she could to make me happy and always prioritized my interests over hers.
I am not sure if I would be able to do the same for my children, however I am grateful to her beyond words for what she did and has been doing for me.
Even today, whenever I feel down (though I’m a mother myself) I pick up the phone and just pour out all my feelings to her. She patiently listens to everything that I blabber and cheers me up.
And during my pregnancy and delivery, it was my mom who had spent several sleepless nights so that I could rest.
She does everything purely out of unconditional love and never expects anything in return. A mere phone call from me makes her day.
“Maa! You are truly a hero."
I hope whatever I have stated would strike a chord with most of you.
Here’s a poem that I wish to dedicate to my mother. Of course, this poem resonates with most mothers.
She wakes up every morning before sunrise,
And does all her chores without demanding a price.
She cooks breakfast, dinner and a sumptuous lunch,
And packs yummy snacks in boxes, for her kids to munch.
She drops her kids at school and makes sure they don’t cry.
When her husband goes to office, she kisses him goodbye.
She goes to the market and buys all provisions,
And stacks them, after making very prudent decisions.
She wishes everyone she knows, on their special days,
And remembers birthdays and anniversaries, despite all the craze.
She cries, laughs and at times gets a little angry,
But loves to play silly games with kids, to make them happy.
A teacher, a chef and sometimes a mind reader,
Plenty of roles to play, she’s a domestic engineer.
She is the backbone of every family,
“Thank you” and “I love you” are the gifts she accepts happily.
My Journey as a Mother
I have two beautiful children, a girl and a boy. I wouldn’t call myself an ideal mom and nor can that be expected as you all would agree. Motherhood is one thing that can never be taught. We just learn to go with the flow throughout our journey.
Initially when my kids were very young (those numerous feedings, diapers, tantrums,were driving me crazy) I did feel a little stressed out. But I learnt to manage it, thankfully, with a lot of support. Every obstacle that I faced, only made me more experienced.
As days pass on, I realize that my children prove to be a source of inspiration to me in many ways.
As a mother, I provide my guidance and support whenever needed however I have been trying to raise them as independent individuals. We, as a family are a great team in everything – be it playing, travelling, talking or even fighting ( ha ha! sometimes).
So when it comes to motherhood there is no right way or wrong way. It is only a mother's way. Every mother tries to do the best for her child.
So here’s my message to all the mothers – You all always rock. Enjoy your journey throughout, cherishing all the memories that you collect all along.
