mothers day

It is May 8, 2011-it’s Mother’s day. This is one of the most important days in the year for me. I love my mother a lot-A LOT! Looking at it from factual point of view, I guess all of us love our mothers very much. Yes, in our hearts we do. But do you think we do justice to the love of the woman we love the most in our lives? NO!

I remember many incidents where I have to take an exam and am getting late. In a hurry am packing my things to leave and there is a woman standing with me, more worried than me and holding my breakfast. She knows I dont have the time to eat it, still, between my struggle to collect my things to leave for my exam, she manages to make me eat my all important breakfast. That’s my mother. More worried about me than I can be about myself. Taking care of me in a way no one else can do.

I do not have much to say today. I just want you to know Mom, that I love you very much. I know no one will ever be able to love me more than you. I wish you health, and peace and a fulfilling life. I am what I am only because of you.

Father’s Day

Father’s Day

Father’s Day is celebrated by the children in 60 countries of the world to show love and respect for their fathers. It is celebrated on different days; the third Sunday of June is the most common day. Father’s Day was initiated by a lady Sonora Dodd whose father, a civil war veteran, brought up his children after the death of his wife. Father’s Day is a way of showing appreciation for the troubles and toils a father goes through to provide his children the best in life.

Fathers are providers; the bread winners of the family. Their word is considered the final authority in all matters. They are a pillar of support for their children and “I will tell my dad” scares away the biggest bullies. A child is seen to be more attached to his mother than father as a father’s job keeps him away from home for a long time. Plus fathers are at times strict but that does not mean that they are cold hearted. Even a father’s heart cries out when his child is hurt. A smile from his little one cheers up dad. Although fathers do not show their emotions easily, they too are hungry for the words “I Love you Dad”.

So go ahead and tell him how much you love him on this father’s day.

Happy Mothers Day Ma!

Happy Mothers Day Ma!“Tujhe sb hai ptaa…hai na Ma??” (You know and understand all my pains and my problems mother, right?) Today, looking back at my life, and feeling your support in all I did in my life and will do, I find it strange that you are the person whom I often tell that “you don’t know it Ma”..(Ami apko nh pta)

Who can love me more than you Ma? No one can ever do that. You have always loved me more than anyone else. You have always been there in the most impossible of situations. You have been my courage, my strength, through out my tough times. You gave me life, and allowed me to live. You allowed me to be happy, and to make me happy, you forgot what your happiness was. Your selflessness, your sacrifice brought me to the point where I am today Ma. You are the only one in this world to whom my success is her own success. You selfless being-My Mother!

I want you to know that I love you. And I know that I have not always been the best daughter in the world Ma, but you were and you are as always, the best mother in the world! God blessed me with you.  God couldn’t have been here physically all the time, so he sent you. From my birth to my tooth aches, from the first day I crawled to when I fell in the cave thing near our residence in Murree, from my first school day to my convocations of these two Masters degrees, from my first step to the last, I owe it to you Ma. Thanks for taking care of me all my life (Please do that for the rest of my life too, for I cant survive without you). Thanks for all those parathey in the breakfast (one of which is on the breakfast table right now, and is getting cold as usual). Thanks for allowing me to have parties at home with my friends. Thanks for holding my hand and walking through the rough and tough of life. Thanks for sleeping on the wet part of the bed and allowing me to sleep on the dry part, after I wet the bed as a 6 months old. Thanks for the positive energy you have always given me Ma. Thanks for this confidence I carry today. Thanks for allowing me to be ME.

I know I can never say it enough, that I love you Ma! You mean everything to me. Am happy that you are here with me, and that I know what you mean to me before its too late. Be there. I need you more now, and will need you even more in the future Ma!

Happy Mother’s Day Ma! Dedicated to my Mother, Mrs. Nargis Sarfraz. Leave comments as tributes to your moms today. They deserve it.

To all Fathers on this Father’s day

Fathers are such wonderful people who are not always appreciated. Often the praises usually go to the mothers. Though we do not spend much time with our fathers as they struggle through the day to provide all the possible luxuries and comfort and protect us from all cruelties of the world, for us he is always a hero of the scrimmage. For these and other reasons, he is too little understood. Fathers are always an inspiration and guide us in our every step of life. Those who have lost their fathers know the importance of their existence.
In order to celebrate their importance in life, Father’s day is celebrated the third week of June in many countries worldwide. Some countries celebrate this day according to their rituals and religious calendars. The widely accepted father’s day falls in the third week of June though. This year it will be celebrated on June 21, 2009. Though fathers cannot be honored just by celebrating a day as ‘father’s day’, it’s essential to understand their importance in our life. They are silent, but deep down inside their heart they love just as much as our mothers and are not less than our mothers en masse.

Mother’s Day Special-Tribute to all Moms of the world!

Mother’s Day Special-Tribute to all Moms of the world!

May 10, 2009 is being celebrated as Mothers Day. Well, we are a bit unfair to our mothers. The woman who dedicates her life to you without asking for anything in return deserves every day of the year; Not just one day! I believe all of us love our mothers unconditionally, and so, in fact, every day is Mother’s day. Today I take this opportunity to salute all mothers of this world.
Imagine the courage of that woman who bears unbearable pain, only to bring you into the world, and still loves you! Imagine the depth of her love. She stays awake most of the night with you as an infant so that you could sleep well. What a will power for a woman to work harder than us, to make us learn the first alphabets as kids, to bear our tantrums and still love us. Most of us find ourselves too busy to reciprocate this love fully. But the least we could do is,  get up right now, go to her and give her a tight bear hug and tell her…Ma, I love you!
To me, my Mom is the most special person in my life. Whatever I am today is all because of her. She taught me how to face the worst of circumstances and still smile. She taught me to do good to others, even if they are not so good to me. Her faith in Allah introduced me to my Allah, my Almighty. She made me learn how to handle situations that are not easy to handle and most importantly, how to keep your family together and enjoy whatever life brings you in the roughest of times.
I take this opportunity to thank my mom for everything from my learning of ABCD…, to my interest in sports, to my confidence, to the wonderful breakfasts she served me with all her love, to my dreams, to her unconditional love and care…and to tell her that, Ami…I love you and I always will. I owe everything to you. And on this mother’s day, I wish and pray that I never see a day in my life without you. May Allah Bless you with the best of health.
This wish is for Mrs. Nargis Sarfraz, my mother. Do you feel the very same way for your own mother? If that is the case, leave a comment with the name of your mother in it, share with us how you feel about her.
