Happy Mother's Day!!

Hi Friends,Today is Mother's Day .Without a Woman there is no more &Without a Mother.Born as a girl,become a daughter,to the parents and realtionship starts to her .Each and every step to learn a child needs a support from parents especially from Mother; as she is the First teacher to a child in learning everything.Hold on to that tiny hand wrapped around her finger for as long as a child can.Its true that a Motherhood doesn't come with instructions.A daughter is just a little girl who grows up to be your best friend!!

Everybody loves to give advice.......but a mother will be near a child always to listen.We can't explain in a single word about a Mother as every thing in the World has a beginning i.e;Mother I believe.Even kids leave her a  MOTHER never leaves her kids of thinking.The most beautiful necklace a Mother can wear is not gold or gems,but her child's arms around her neck.

I Love my Mother.Every one has a story of their Mother.By Creating this Cooking Blog;I am able to share all the things and work I do and Known.I am sharing my Loving Mother ....

My Mother's name is Smt.Lakshmi Hanumayyamma Garu.She have 3 children.2 sons & me the one daughter.She shared equal LOVE & Affection to us and the Family too.Celebrating a MOTHER'S DAY ,we should not speak less of Father.Both Father and Mother makes a good Family.As a Father earns money with his Work.Mother takecare to run a family in order.

Everything I learnt from my Mother.She is my perfect dictionary to clear any doubts from my school day sin the study.Even now if I am worrying for anything and thinking soon she cools me by saying nice word.After my Marriage ,I always thinks I miss them as LOVE & Affection increased in me after staying away.I still remember that even every Mother says to a daughter before Marraige "You say AMMA,Amma,after seeing hubby and ur kids no Amma".But in my case Loving her increased.

Even today when  I am living faraway from her I remember my parents in every work without them I can't be today like this.My Father and Mother both gave me a bright future.As my father was not much educated ,he does a Wax Candles business.He is a good hardworker to the family and always believes in God.I like his calling me always "ammayi" than "Divya".

My mom educated she very nicely adviced me in doing things easily in everything with her knowledge.I like her creativity work too.Everyday in each stage , step she showed me and made me special and beautiful.When I was a small girl she used to sent me a lot of other activities a part from studies.I still remember the hardwork she did to me in decorating like Goddess Durga for the Fancy dress competition.I won the first prize and every one even they praise my mother for her work.Not only me she plays a very important role in designing and stiching clothes in our relation.I am very proud to have her.I feel happy to be born to my parents.

My mother always shares everything useful information when she seen in the newspaper and watch anything in the T.V too.I remember words"Sharing is Caring" when I started this blog.She shared me a lot of posts to edit.Each and every comments and compliments got for my blog is to my "Amma".I learnt from her many things like songs,stories,creativity work ,ideas .In oneword every work I known from my MOTHER and also by the blessings of GOD.;As GOD can't be anywhere so he created MOTHER to this WORLD.

She says me a lot of valuable and usable information to me.She always reminds me don't be idle and try for new like learn anything.My parents wish was me to choose any Job apart of homemaker.In the same way she also says me don't leave kids and enjoy each and every step with them.As the age and patience ,enjoying varies.However I am very happy with my two kids.The day will be very busy with them only.Even the flow of words coming from my kids mouth makes me happy soon to recall my childhood memories too.Happiness & Sadness comes me from my children .Now without them ,I can't believe how I can be .I remember one thing ,when I was new to the Torrance,I felt like this If I have no kids,how will be my days .As friends always can't with me ......My kids are everything for me I thought.Children makes me daily wonders in my life.When I scold my boy for his wrong work ,I used to say him"Picchi Sannasi" He smiles and cries .In my chidlhood I used to show face sadly if anyone scolds me.

 I feel very proud to have a Mother of like her.I want to share and bring up my children like my Mom.I make her as my Role Model.But I feel wrong and bad in some situations when someone hurts her.But she says good words when I feel .When a girl tells you about her problems,it doesn't mean that she is complaining it means she trusts you.

She supports me positively .She did everything to me and My wish was in this world ;Mother is there for every thing to takecare for the kids .God should give her a lot of strength and health.I want to takecare of my kids like my Mother and make my kids happy Forever and ever!!

As everyone believes and follows a rule if we want to start any work eventhough knows how to do ;follows to ask elders as they knows well anything from their elders and by experiences!!

Mother gives Life and teaches everything but seriously ,I didn't expected that a MOTHER change after becoming a MOTHER_IN_LAW.My case it happened .So funny.All the time I didn't felt with my Mother-in-law as a Mother all the time.Telling fact!!I used to think in my mind."Oh My God ,I should not change like Mother-in-law".By saying this I am not criticising and disliking her .Nature of mind changes due to age and due to some responsibilities.

Only the Mother is always a MOTHER.She never expect any salary for her work in the Family.Only she expects the purity of LOVE from her kids and the family members.Even I feel for my Kids ,they should be always behave with same affection and Love.Me myself also want to be never change when I step to Mother-in-Law age. I expect every Woman not to change their sharing of Love to be with them like that only.

Finally ,I want to share memorable moment I never forget Last year Mother's day at Tirupati with my In-laws.My Father-in-law ,respected Sir Sri C.RadhaKrishna Garu ,Retd. S.E garu encouraged me to participate in the event "AMMA" conducted bt EENADU Telugu News paper Vasundhara family team.he sent my details and I selected to the program.The program was amazing ,each and every round I enjoyed a lot.Few rounds I still enjoy by remembering it Jig jag number sheet to match the numbers and to show how beautiful a MOTHER is .Songs of Amma round.........I sang my favourite song sung by a girl Bhuvana kruti "Amma Lali Pata".I reached to final by performiong a dance .Even now my little girl likes to hear and dance for those Songs i.e; "SIR OSTHARA" song from Business man and "KOPUNA POOLU" from Gabbar singh.Hope all  Indians may like it even now.These moments made me happy Last year.My In-laws felt very happy when they seen my picture in the newspaper.My Mother-in-law saw many times that paper saying each and every round I seen and finally they appreaciated me for going to the event without fear!! All credit for that day is to my In-Laws only because they took care of my children and I won the prize.

Really I feel happy to post about all my sharing and stories of mine in this blog.How many likes/dislikes not a matter.Saying fact/truth is important.While I was typing the lines I shed tears from my eyes with happily.The best pair in the world is "SMILE & CRY".They won't meet each other at a time;If they meet ,Its the best moment in your life.

A Mother is she who can take the place of all others,but whose place no one else can take.

Once again Friends,Happy Mother's Day to all dear respected Mother's.
