The Angel in Disguise



Mothers are the blessings of God. Their care, love, strength is unconditional and insurmountable. The bond and attachment of mother and a child is divine. And this special relationship starts as a woman conceives, from fertilization, implantation to the development of embryo and undergoing all the awesome stages of pregnancy, the attachment keeps on gaining strength and more strength.

Mothers are the creators of love and compassion. Their power and stability is unmatched. And one such woman I like to admire is my mother in law. She is a symbol of extreme strength. Having undergone acute crisis in her life, she came out to be a winner. Losing her husband at a very young age, to the calamities of time, left with two small kids to look after all alone, was her destiny. But she fought, worked harder, kept all her faith in God, with hopes intact, and raised her kids with virtues of courage, prudence, respect and honesty. And today when I look at my husband, I have all the praise in my heart for the one who bestowed such wonderful qualities on him.

With a smile on her face and hopes in her heart she faced the struggle of her life, taught values to her kids, brought them up with protection, and gave them love. Resultant to her sacrifices, prayers and toughness both the children are achieving success in their respective field.

I admire her for not only giving birth to my soul mate but for she is one such woman of substance who is independent and living life on her own terms and conditions. She is the backbone of my family.

Relationships are developed with time, commitment, respect, care and acceptance without any prejudice. I share a very sweet and sour relationship with my mother in law. We are not arms in arms or melodramatic types. We respect each other’s opinions, share good and bad times together, supportive of decisions and choices, and help each other with daily chores. I have even learned cooking some scrumptious Punjabi delicacies from her. 

She invested her entire life for well-being of children, raised them single handedly. It’s our turn now to be patient, give her time, support and lots of care. For being such a beautiful person I wish to de - stress my mother in law with hugs, happiness, smiles, care and of course with Parachute Advanced Aromatherapy Oil massage, which shall give her the much needed calmness and relaxing sensations. 

With so much stress, anxiety, anger surrounding our life and engulfing our peace, why don’t we put in efforts to live in harmony, life gone by, days lived by shall never return.  Let’s step ahead leaving the shackles of ego behind and give our beloved mothers all the happiness as our existence and life is their gift to us. 

I’m blogging about why my mother needs to de-stress with a Parachute Advansed Aromatherapy Oil massage for the #StressFreeMom activity at BlogAdda.

  1. Very well written.It is sad the parents in their twilight years when they cannot stay alone are considered a burden these days They are tossed from one sibling to another or persuaded to get into senior home especially when both spouses work.This option of senior home is understandable so long the parents are kept in good comfort and financially supported if need be.

    1. Life is indeed stressful these days but no matter what I am completely against sending small kids to creche and old people to senior homes, specially when they have a family to look after. Earning money is important but it is not the only thing. How you manage things as a team is important.
      Thanks for liking the post.
      Lots of sunshine to you.

  5. This is the first time I am reading a tribute for a mother in law on Mother's day. My MIL passed away before my marriage, I have never known her and somehow this post made me think of her. Great read for me.

    1. There is lot of misconceptions attached to a DIL & MIL relationship.
      Its sweet and sour, its about accepting each other, some adjustments on both side without losing individuality. Its about being true to yourself.
      Thanking for reading and commenting Indrani, it's encouraging. :-)

    1. MILs & DILs are not that bad actually, it is upto us what we make of our relationship. If we nourish, fertilize and water the seed, it will surely come out to be a healthy plant.
      Having some patience is the key word.
      Thanks Rachna, your comment means a lot.

  8. It's quite rare we read someone praising her mother-in-law. She must be a great women. Bringing up two kids alone is very very difficult. Hats off to her and to you for writing such heart warming post.

      My MIL is indeed a very hard working lady.
      No one is perfect, everybody has some or other flaws, as individuals we should accept each other happily.

  9. I guess first time I am reading something good about a Mother-in-law written by daughter-in-law. She must be proud of you the way you are.
