God couldn’t be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.
~ Rudyard Kipling
This is one of my favorite quotes on motherhood. It reminds me what a huge privilege and responsibility it is to be a mom.
It also makes me feel ever grateful that I have a mom- a practical and prayerful woman who has loved me through the ups and downs of my life. We may not see each other eye to eye all the time, but I really appreciate it that she really listens and tries to understand me ( even if I can’t figure out what I want to say).
I wouldn’t be who I am without her support and guidance. I love her more now that I’m a mom myself. It warms my heart every time my little girlie says, “Thank you” or “You’re the best.”
I know, I’m being a little sentimental here. I guess it’s because Mother’s Day (May 13) and my mom’s birthday are just around the corner and I can’t be with her on those special days since she lives abroad.
I usually give her a card but this year, I’m thinking flowers and a big jar of achara (green pickle papaya relish) which she can’t seem to get enough of.

Fresh or Faux flowers?
While I would love to send my mom a bouquet of fresh flowers, it’s really out of the question. It’s probably gonna cost me an arm, a leg and maybe a kidney.
And actually, my mom , who’s the thriftiest person I know ( I say that again with much love and admiration) doesn’t like being given exorbitant gifts. She appreciates simple but thoughtful ones more. She’d rather have us save the money for future needs. If she were here, she’d probably enjoy a picnic in a park or eating out together.
Besides, the faux flowers would last a lot longer than fresh ones. She can have it on display like in our family home. As a matter of fact, we have some faux flowers in wine bottles which my mom arranged herself. It’s great they’re still there after many years. We just wipe them clean from time to time. Low in maintenance but high in sentimental value.
