An Ode to Mummy

The other tentative title was 'Mum's the word'
"But Mahi! 'An Ode to Mummy' sounds so much more better!" you might say..
Actually i thought so too..and i even checked out the synonyms for 'Ode' on microsoft word (yes...i actually did that...i know what you're thinking..so..shut up). ANYWAY the synonyms were 'verse, rhyme, sonnet, elegy, limerick, couplet, epic, prose (antonym), thesaurus'
i was kidding about the 'prose' bit.
no seriously *rolls eyes*
(for the humor-challenged..i was kidding abt the thesaurus bit too)

ANYWAY

With my mom being in India for a whole fortnight and all, i actually had a lot of time without the nagging, to think about what my mom meant to me.
Now as a 21 year old girl-woman, ive had my fair share of tiffs with the lady of the house..and some have been worse than others...and to be quite honest there were the few times when i thought life would be so much more better off if i lived away from home (yes i know..'how teen angst-y yaaaar')
But the very next day, we both had/have an unspoken agreement that the fight would end and it would be water under the bridge.
it was just the way things were/are.
The bottomline(s) are...as annoyed and frustrated as i get with mom, i do love her very much...
She is the glue that holds this house together..everyone seems a little lost without her around..a little like tiny ships lost out at sea without an anchor..or like a small,slightly worried kid lost in a huge mall without her mum.
Mum, without you, Brother and I are indeed a bit lost(dad too), and while i dont allow myself to show it..i wish i could be half as strong as you are..and i wish i could have half the amount of patience that you have..
She probably wont ever get to read this..but i hope im humble enough one day, to tell her this myself
ALSO - now that she's not at home, i REALLY appreciate all those times she did the dishes...i HATE doing them. Kudos to you mom

I Love You.
Happy Mothers Day

You know,

My 13 year-old brother summarized what you said in your blog with one line. In front of 3 familes at lunch yesterday, he had to give a speech for mum. He stands up and says:
"uh...Mum....keep up the good work"

Short but sweet.

what would life be without tiff's with the 'rents..all too perfect no? But, its times like this that we value the true worth of our progenitors. And trust me, should u ever leave home one day your respect and love for them will exponentially increase. So thats my spank for the day:)
