Curried Quinoa & Vegetables Soup -- Mothers Day Wishes In Advance !!!
I know Mothers day is still few days ahead still wanted to wish all the fabulous mothers, grandmothers, aunts ,sisters ,sister-in-laws and my best friends and my blog readers a very happy mothers day in advance. Being a mother or mother figure is a serious job and a job where learning happens everyday and on the job and the one that does not come with rules or instructions. Being a mom to me means to follow your heart with best intentions and hope at the everything works out at the end.
The impact mom has on a girl’s life is immense, at some point in our lives I think we turn into our moms like it or not :).
I was raised by a very level headed, smart and a balanced mom who taught me always to hold my head high and be proud of what I do no matter how big or small of a task it is and always to respect traditions and emphasized how important it to maintain a good relation say with in-laws or my very big large extended family. And I cannot tell how proud I am of my mom , also fortunate that I share a loving relationship with my mother-in-law who never shy's always from paying a compliment or to tell me to take a time out of my hectic pace to do something that I am passionate about.
Feel truly blessed to be surrounded by such role models who include my grandmothers, aunts, mom, mil,sil and not to mention my rock star girl friends wear different hats of working/stay-at-home moms, raising kids, running a household and doing million other things but yet know when to take a pause and enjoy life.
