Today is my Mom's birthday and its after many years that we are together on this day. So, I wanted to do a little something for her to make her day special. For all the unbelievable cakes she made for us year after year, the least I could do was bake one for her.
I can never thank her enough for her undying love and support that she has provided me over the years.. for her unbelievable patience, for all the sacrifices she gave for us without ever letting us know about it, for all the late nights she was up with me during my exams, for not only encouraging my passion of baking but also for teaching me the correct way of doing it, for putting up with my teenage years and for never giving up on me.. and for all the countless things she did, and is still doing for me.
Her love and support never ends. She is here with me these days to help us out with our new baby girl. I really would have gone crazy with a newborn and a preschooler, if not for her. Last couple of months, I have seen her get up everyday before I do, deal with all the pains that old age has given her, and help with all the house work with such energy and ease (which normally would have left unattended if left to me). And then for keeping my son busy with endless hours of story reading, when I wanted to sleep few extra hours. Thanks my Mommy.
As a mother, if I am able to do half of what my mom did for us, I'll consider myself a successful mother.
A Very Happy Birthday to my Dearest Mommy.
