A tribute to my MOM… #writebravely #writetribeproblogger

“Dad, I want to talk to mummy,” I told my dad over the phone. “She has gone to change her clothes, once back I will ask her to call you back.” dad told me. That moment what I do not know was that she will never call me back rather I received a call from my brother that she is gone. My world stood stand-still, the time has stopped. I could not believe my ears what I heard. 10 minutes back, I was talking to my dad and she was fine at that time, now my brother is saying this. She was in India and I am 15 hours away from her sitting in a foreign land. Someone told me a few days back, “you started to look like your mom, your way of talking is just like her.” At that time, all I did not know that God had decided for me to be in the shoe of my mom. I was unable to sync-in with this hard-hitting reality that I am all alone now.

Lost in these thoughts, I went to the nearby lake. it was late afternoon in my current country, I sat there and started crying, “Why you left me?” “Because It is my time to leave the world.” I heard my mom’s voice. She sat near me, I felt the same touch what I felt every time I was upset. “How will I manage without you mummy? Please. don’t leave me like this,” I started crying frantically. “Same way, the way I managed when my mom left me,” she told me in a very calm voice. She continued “You are my daughter, you can never cry and lose hope. You were my strength and weakness too. I know you will be a good mom. Trust me, we will meet again, very soon. But, for now, you have to let me go. I wanted to go home too. I wanted to relax now. I gave you everything, my strength, my teachings, my knowledge, my experiences and above all myself. I know you will make a good use of it and help others with this knowledge. Now, I have to go beta, but I will meet you soon.” She kissed me for the last time and left.

Today I am dedicating this post to the “IRON LADY”, my mom, who taught me to face every challenge with a big smile and heart. She finished all her responsibilities and I, as her daughter is here to honor her teachings and finishing this challenge’s last post.

“Mom! You are always in ME. I am part of you, so you are never gone for me.”

    Nidhi, I am speechless, have no words. However, this is a brave post . Take good care of yourself. My prayers with you and your family.
    Your blog is written with great sensitivity

  2. Shubhangi Srikanth says:

    I can’t even imagine what you must be going through. And being so far away that you cannot be with your family in your time of grief must be heart breaking. Nevertheless, as you say, she was an iron lady, and I’m sure she’s ingrained that trait of hers in you. Stay strong my dear. Lots of prayers and hugs.

    Hugs Nidhi! May God give you the strength. I don’t know what to say. I just shared on Vinitha’s blog that I’m scared of death. The loss of life just makes me think how will I accept this natural course of life?
    May your Mum Rest In Peace and you continue to be her existence here in our world.

    Sending you warm hugs Nidhi. I have no words of comfort to offer or even to begin to understand what you must be going through. You take care and know that she will be watching you from wherever she is.

    I understand how difficult it must be for you to cope with the loss so suddenly. Also, I know how difficult it must be to write this. Your mom is watching over you. Be strong. Hugs.
