This time Team Blogadda has asked the bloggers to write a post that must contain the word MOM and just 5 sentences to complete the story and I have written a post addressing to my mom.
A decade and a half ago , I became a mom and for the first time understood the importance and the gravity of the word 'mom' and this transformation changed my equation with you as I stepped in your shoes.
On the long path of parenting, you made some mistakes and I took care not to repeat them as erring is the first step to learning and unlearning while I still hold your little finger for guidance in the vast and never-ending realm of parenting .
I am what I am because of your loving nurturing combined with a strict iron hand and I try my level best to inculcate the same values that I have inherited as legacy from you in my off-spring.
My new role has brought immense joys and at the same time has given me some anxious moments to ponder when I misjudged you for being cruel and despotic while instilling discipline and moral values.
Will history repeat itself is the oft asked question to myself but on second thoughts I have faith in my abilities to face and overcome any simple and complex problems as , dear mom , I am a shadow of you .
