wrote this blog from way back.. sharing it again this time for mother's day.
she is my little girl
everyone around us and who knows us
knows who is she in my life.
she is my angel...
she is heaven's way of assuring me that i am loved...
she is my life's greatest treasure.
a lot of moms can say the same way or even more than this.
now i believe that motherhood is in every woman's heart.
it is in every woman's dreams
it is the essence of every woman...
motherhood is not biological...
oh yes it is, i won't argue..
but does that make me less of a mother
just because i did not conceive her?
i am luckier, come to think of it.
that life and fate did not allow me to experience
that painful agony but fruitful childbearing process of life...
...but i am a mother!
she just turned 8, in a new school, and soon she will be graduating (sigh)
she is now asking how she can use my bags and chooses among them
she wants a facebook account...
she is "in" MY life... my family and friends,
and soon, she will be in HER own society of friends and family as well.
yes, my own, will also be her own now!!!
her life will be my life
but i will not make my life her life...
...because i am just a mother.
i will not cry when she cries
coz i need to be strong
no matter how much tears i am trying to stop...
i cannot stop living, trying and hurting,
i cannot just stop when everything gets rough and tough
coz i cannot stop being the person she looks up to
and for that i need to go on with life...
...because i am her mother...
i am happy even when i am sad
i feel alive even if i'm tired,
i feel high even if i'm in my lowest,
just one kiss and one hug!
i am living a life now, that to her i owe...
...SHE IS MY DAUGHTER
