Some mothers are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same, and most mothers kiss and scold together. ~Pearl S. Buck
My mom would not hesitate to scold me even now across oceans and continents especially when it comes to all matters related to my son. And then she would promptly start cajoling and pleading with him to not ruffle my feathers, nor create trouble for me and to take care of me…She makes my heart swell with pride and my eyes swell with tears just by uttering my name in the way that only she can and does: part exasperation and part inspiration!
Here’s wishing my mom good health, great hopes and wonderful days ahead as she eagerly awaits the graduation of both of her grandsons- my son this June and my nephew next February. May You Have Bountiful Blessings Amma!
