There are lots of writings for mothers and each one knows what is her contribution to our lives. But do we really acknowledge her when its really needed?
Her daily scoldings come to reality when we do those things ourselves in our quest for freedom, trying to recall what did she put in the food first, the spices or the vegetables!!
“Mom this isn’t how I like it!! I will not eat!” suddenly changes to I miss Mom’s food as soon we try cooking for ourselves after a tiring day at work, which eventually leads us to make noodles!
But you see we always see her contribution as a homemaker!
We fail to even acknowledge the emotional strength & stability she brings to the entire family! You are angry, you vent out your frustration to her; You are sad, you cry out to her; you are frustrated & all you crave for is her soft head massage and her lap; dad’s under financial stresses, she takes up work too, rather she has now gone a step ahead and taken over dad’s work. We forget that she too was a little girl that had her own dreams and ambitions but she sacrificed all of it to see all of us happy! She had dreams of being independent and working and moving around, but all we’ve done is bonded her to the kitchen, the home which isn’t even her place but she still handles it with all her heart and passion!
All she waits for is 1 phone call saying you’re okay, one text message with a light-hearted joke, one video call to show her your shapeless undercooked roti, one meeting to celebrate your promotion. She takes all your stress away but never complains!
The lady who has taken stress but seldom or never complained just to see you happy. This lockdown could be taking a toll on her too. The way you cant move out of the house, she too feels home arrested.
Make the PHONE CALL! Make the VIDEO CALL! Give her a Tight HUG! She also is human and could face anxiety issues but will not complain. So as a child gift her this beautiful experience to destress her, helping her communicate and cope with hidden stress.
Remember. You don’t want a stressor at home but a loving, smiling and a healthy mother
