“Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs… since the payment is pure love” – Mildred B. Vermont.
Who can disagree with that? Warmth, lovely, beautiful, best hugger, affectionate and more such adjectives are associated with her. On the 13th of May, the world observes Mother’s Day. Well, there cannot be one day to love your mom, or to express it. But it is the only day where universally, every child wants to make his/her mother feel special. To mark this special day, we want the blogosphere to gather, and share one best conversation/incident/learning that their mom has enriched them with.
Share stories, thoughts, realisations, pour out your emotions, your feelings, and tell us:
- A learning that your mother was successful in cultivating within you. Or it may be a learning that you have inculcated by seeing your mother. Back it up with incidents, where these learnings were most useful to you. For some, the best learning could be how one should remain patient in troublesome situations, while others might have learnt to remain strong in traumatic engagements, because they have seen their mother do so. Pen it down, so that we can also get inspired by those learnings.
- A conversation that you had with your mother and is still etched in your mind. At a point of time, mothers become our best friend. And with friends, we have many conversations. There might be a conversation where you both laughed together, cried on each other’s shoulder, remembered childhood days, or anything that has found a permanent place in your mind. Share them. We would love to read to those conversations! 🙂
- An incident that happened with you and your mother, and is still remembered by you. You both must have pulled your father’s leg, had a neck-to-neck badminton match, or fought victoriously an emotionally dreaded situation. Tell us about it. We want to know about the relation you share.
You choose to write about any one of them, or even a combination.
Take a cup of coffee, and start writing!
While every post will be a winner in itself, because no one mother can be better than the other. Mothers are mothers. Plain and simple. There cannot be a first or a second prize for them. But for bloggers, there can. Six entries, will receive a surprise gift from us and their posts will be published on our blog. Keep it real. Keep it unforced. The write-up can be of around 300 words.
Post your entry in our forum here. The gathering ends on 21st May, 2012.
All the best bloggers! 🙂
