I did a batch of Mango Ice cream Cookie sandwiches because both the mothers in our lives are huge fans of the 'Mother' of all fruits (pun intended). Recipes to follow in consequent posts.
While the cyber world and the blogging world in particular are kicking up a storm over the very in-style Mother's day, i'm going to write a note to my mother (a very rare thing, the last time i wrote to her, i still needed pocket money from her to buy a toothbrush) and my mother-in-law.
So, here goes:
You go way beyond the 'Mom' tag that ensures lines like ''Amma, can u make me my favorite bhindi fry today'' from us. You also go way beyond the ''Can you please run my errands for me?'' You go way way beyond the pampering, multi tasking, full time functioning, ultra patient, super awesome skills that are required of a Mother. Fact is, you are God sent, the biggest person i look up to and my best friend. Need i really say more? Amma, you are my favorite person in the world. for reasons i can and can not really fathom. You and i know we don't need a 'Mother's Day' to show each other we care. i tell you i love you every time i speak to you, and i mean it. i wish i become as good a Mother as you are with us brats. Till then, i leave you with lots of love and this, because you love mangoes, and so do i!!! :D
For my mother-in-law, a.k.a 'Mummy'
I know how much Mother's day means to you, so here's wishing the most fantastic mom-in-law a blessed Mother's day! I have learnt so much from you. You are strong and i admire the way you live life with so much guts and so much enthusiasm. But most importantly, you are the mother of the man i live with, so, that says it all. We have seen each other through some crazy times and we have so much fun when we are together. We share so many interests, including food, Grey's Anatomy and Mohanlal! :)
Here's wishing you a lifetime of happiness, because you totally deserve it!
Leaving you with lots of love and a little something we are having today, because we know how much you love mangoes! :D
