This is a difficult post to write , but one that must be written and shared, to help me move on.
I am getting back to this blog after many months today on Mother's Day. It has been a difficult time , first with my mother's battle with cancer and finally when her fight got over, nearly 3 months back, free from all that pain and suffering, but leaving us all with this unfathomable sense of loss, injustice and this deep deep void. It is always difficult to lose a parent, more so if it is untimely and accompanied by suffering of that parent. It leaves you with a strange mix of memories, initially dominated by the all suffering one witnessed, that really overshadows all the beautiful years one shared with that person. I'm told there would come a day when I will only remember the good times and I do believe that.
As I deal with my life without my mother, I take strength from the courage and dignity with which she fought this battle and eventually accepted the inevitable with immense grace. She'll always be missed and forever live within the hearts of those who loved her and were touched by her beautiful life...she would forever inspire me to try and live an honorable life...
Today my best wishes go out to all the mothers of this world..the great reservoirs of endless, selfless love...You all are doing God's work. Happy Mother's Day.
