"You Know I had always felt that you love Chintan more than me. He was the younger one and you had always sheltered him, pampered him and Me...I would just be jealous, sad and crave for your love. But then, as they say, we daughters are daddy's girls and I had dad around me." Ruchi said to her Mother while remembering her childhood.
"You know how everyone said that I looked more like daddy and less like you? I somehow did not like it. I had always secretly admired your beauty. Your deep eyes, that magnetic smile, the soft skin and the long hair...I wanted them all. I wanted so very much to be like you...In fact you!" Ruchi continued.
"I remember the day of my wedding when you were dressing me up. The pride in your eyes to see me all dressed up as a bride. Wearing your bangles and the earrings on my wedding day was a very special moment Mom. It felt as if you and not your jewelry is with me helping me take that plunge and easing the transition." she continued with a smile.
"And when I was leaving the Wedding hall with my Groom, while dad was crying, it was you who stood firm and gave me that soothing look and the confident smile that said it all. Your confidence gave me the belief and positivity that I needed to begin the my new life. I so very much wanted to be like you Mom and had always tried to imbibe your qualities." she continued.
"I have always wanted to tell you this but somehow could not. And today when I am about to enter into an amazing and challenging world called 'Motherhood', just want to say I love you Mom and I hope I would make an amazing Mother, Lady, Wife, and a Human being as you were!!" said Ruchi while getting up and moving towards the Operation Theater for her Cesarean section.
