eNewsletter May 2009

Dear Everyone,

Hi! And how are you all? April was a good month as I grew a year older. Aging is fun as I find that I tend to grow 'wiser'. I could however do without the aches and pains that come with the package. Things that are normal like turning whilst in the driver's seat to take something from the back seat of your car suddenly becomes a little bit more difficult. Muscles and bones become a little bit more stiff. But no complaints. I have had a great life and I will continue to live life to the fullest irrespective of age. Nature will take it's course. I will just have to learn to adapt. Work wise, again it was busy but still managed a trip to Bangkok for a short holiday. Bangkok is one of my favorite cities. The people are so friendly, the food is out of this world and the shopping is great too. Not forgetting the best oil massages in the world!!

May is a special month as 10th May is Mothers Day and hence I want to dedicate this newsletter and it's contents to all the wonderful mothers of the world.


A Mother always gives unconditional love to her children

The picture above exemplifies what a mother’s love is all about. Nothing can come close to the love that a mother feels for her children. It is unconditional, it is always there and it is forever. A famous saying states that "God could not be everywhere and so he invented mothers". I cannot but agree wholeheartedly with this statement. Like the lady in the picture, a mother always puts her children before everything else, including her own comfort and happiness.

It is really difficult to describe this love unless you have experienced it yourself. Like all of you, I had a wonderful mother who unfortunately is no more here. I remember the tender loving care she would shower me and all my brothers and sisters. She would wake up at 5 am daily just to prepare us all for school. I have fond memories of her holding both my cheeks in her left hand in a vice grip and combing my hair with the other. At mealtimes, she would always eat food leftover from the previous meal so that we children could have a ‘good and hearty’ meal. She worked as a cleaner just to make sure we were not deprived of the comforts of life. Everything she did was for us. Her own comfort, happiness and well being took a back seat, always and every time. I am most certain that these experiences I had with my mother is similar to the many happy tales and memories you have of your mother too.

A piece of advice. Those of you who are fortunate enough to still have your mothers around, please do not take them for granted. For Mother’s day, give her the flowers, give her the dinner and give her the presents. But remember, the best present you can give her would be to just give her a long, loving hug and to tell her that she is a wonderful, wonderful mother. That would make Mother’s day extra special for her! Never, ever take her for granted and never have regrets about not showering her with enough love!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful, wonderful mothers of the world!

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I do hope all of you will have a great month ahead. Take care!
