She lost her mother when she herself was but a little girl- and that was just the beginning of her ordeal!
Her life was riddled with trials and tribulations. But, she braved all odds to emerge a winner- a respected teacher, a devoted wife and a perfect, loving mother…this, in spite of the absence of an ideal to emulate!
My anchor in troubled times, my best friend during the loneliest of moments, my guiding star when I fumbled in the dark to make my way in this world, my soul mate and the best gift from God…my MOM!
Just one fact I rue…I can never emulate my ideal…even in my dreams…I would fail miserably!
