A mother is someone who cannot be replaced. Being a mother and a daughter, I am seeing both sides of it.
As a mother, my heart is full of joy and enjoy each and every moment with my boys. My day begins with them and ends with them. I am at that part of life where we are inseparable. I cannot believe one single moment without their noise and love complaining about it.
As a daughter, I have the best life one could have. I am a single child and enjoyed my mother's love all by myself. We were so happy together, shopping, cooking and just fooling around that I forgot God had other plans for us. Seems like I am not one of the lucky ones to enjoy these days a little longer. I lost my Mother 2 ½ years ago and since then, as much as I look forward to the special celebrations on the Mother's day, I also dread it. I miss Amma (as I call my mother) even more and have a tinge of jealousy when I see other's talking and hugging their mothers.
To celebrate this special day and remember our mother's I decided to make a small post with a group of my friends from Blogging Marathon group who have sent their favorite recipes and a small tribute to their Mothers. It was so much reading them and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.
Archana from The Mad Scientists Kitchen's tribute to her Mom.
It is so beautiful that I have tears in my eyes every time I read it. She has sent this recipe of Kari Kadubu to celebrate her mother.
Harini from Tamalapaku has sent in this about her mother.
“My mom, Smt. Suguna Rupanagudi, is the most generous and caring person in my life. I cannot thank her enough for being there for me when I needed her the most. She is an affectionate and loving person and I am blessed to have a mother like her.
She’s always come out very strong in tough situations and I salute her grit and determination in the way she handled each one of them!
She is an extraordinarily talented cook who can win hearts everyday.
She has entered into her 70’s and is still active on Facebook pursuing her passion for Telugu literature. May God bless her with good health !
These Venna cookies / Butter Cookies are my mom’s signature cookies. All my family, extended family and friends wait for an opportunity to enjoy them and she is sweet enough to make them as edible gifts for all occasions. The world might have a different name for these cookies but for my kids they will always be ‘ammamma cookies’.
