Happy Mother’s Day.
Today is the day the pictures of so many mothers will be splashed on social media. I always like reading the sweet messages that people put up or pictures of the lunches and dinner that people go for to celebrate this day. I have very few pictures with my mother because she hates the camera which is the complete opposite of me.
I honestly cannot say our mother-daughter relationship is perfect, but it has come a long way. I mean at one point I thought she ‘hated’ me but that was in my teenage phase. I tend to think that we are more alike and that is why we tend to disagree more. My mum doesn’t show emotion just like me but she proves it more with actions. The number of times I have called her when I was in trouble or crying, she has always been a life saver.
Here is a list of some things that I feel always brings us closer:
- We both have a sweet tooth. If a bakery can make a good white forest we will be passing by every week to buy a slice of cake and some cookies.
- We have the same body insecurities. I did not realize this until we went shopping together and while she was trying out clothes the vendor mentioned how particular my mum is about the pieces she buys.
- We both love experimenting with food. We are always looking for new restaurants to go to during special occasions and because of that, I have managed to try out a few.
Of course, there is so much more but as I grow older we are definitely becoming best friends unless she is taking my hair and skin products but I sometimes take her jewellery so I guess we are even.
I just want to wish all the mothers out there a Happy Mother’s Day!
