Mothers In Arms...

Since it's Mothers' Day here in Aus this Sunday (14th of May), I'd like to base this post on Mothers around the world. But I don't want to go on preaching about how great mothers are etc cos I think all of you know that already. So while keeping all mothers in mind, I like to do a short weekend post on it. Just try to take part to the best of your ability (whether you're a female/male or mother/father/single etc).

What do you think is the most 'Alluring' aspect(s) of your Mother?

It has to be distinguishable from the rest so it's a good learning process/knowledge for others here. Mothers around the world may have the same motherly instincts, but I'm sure they differ in some subtle yet amazing ways among different cultures and homes. My answer is as follows:
My mother is a Sri Lankan woman (with Indian connections) and we have lived here in Australia for quite some time. I feel my mother has a very distingusihing quality about her. And that is, she always speaks what's fair, whether it's her children or not who's involved. She never takes sides. That quality about her has made me learn alot about life and I guess I approach things the same way now. Even if it's my friends or not, I say/do what I think is fair. I have seen mothers who always favor their kids no matter what. I understand that may be out of the endless love for their kids, but I think if a mother truly loves her kids, she should teach her kids the truth by being an example herself. Remember that it's a mother who lays the foundation for life inside a child's mind. If the foundation is shaky, there's not much one can do later on. Happy Mothers' Day to all mums and especially Autumn_Storm, Ishita and Kath (who are the only mums I know in blogs - sorry if I missed any others...)! Muahhhhhhhhhh all you sweet and brilliant mums!

Known Stranger said...

you read tamil right ?

Masd said...

I have never written about my mother.never thought of my self seperately from her that I could write about her, what I mean is I have found myself always part of her, how could a drop tells about the ocean. Let me try to tell her most alluring aspect.
Well her believe in fairness and truth and inculcating in us that truth will always turn out to be victorious. That has given her children the support that is needed to turn down the short cuts to shallow successes.

southpaw said...

Gives one tight slap on basanti's plumpy ass....i just said i m not qualified to comment on mothers, i was not comparing anything.

@Keshi
Got my point....
My word!!!u told ur mom about my flirtious behaviour????????
Hv u ever thought how difficult it wud be for me now to get her approval to take u out to the woods on the weekends....lol

musings (m000nie) said...

my mom... the first thing that strikes me as of now is her strength... shes taught me to live a life with strength... i vividly remember when my dad was on his deathbad... my mom didnt cry a tear in front of me n my bro... i dont know how she did that but i have learnt how to deal with matters like this with strength and patience

love u mom... thank u for everyhthing

lil _kath said...

..awww thanx for special mention there sweetie ^_^ yeah, i'm proud to be Mom and i can say this because...
"Before i was myself she made me, me"... ^_~ my dearest mom...iluv u!

...just to say the word "MOM" i feel like cryin' coz another special day without her on my side hmm... *sobs*

...hug your Mom Kesh, for me too ^_^ hugggggsss!!

...Rina seems writing something for me too ^_~ when i came to her room ,she said "Mom can you please knock first?! arghhh!...not good example for the kid naa...hehe ( bad mom ;( but i still spy her till she really locked the door! :D

...Happy Mother's Day to all Mom's in the world!

...enjoy weekend sweetie muaahh!

cheers,
-kathy-

Jeevan said...

The mother is the only life, service their kids (even her family) without any expectation. Wishes your mom a Happy Mothers Day:)

Ranger Tom said...

Let's hear it for moms!!!!!

Rohit Talwar said...

I can't find a single aspect. Sorry! My Mom's amongst the BEST MOMS in the world! Yoohooo! It's difficult to talk about just one thing.

Navin S said...

I think most the population would agree on this verse taken from Hinduisme

Matha-Pitha-Guru (In enlish-Mother-Father-Mentor)

It eventually places mothers at the very peak.The reason? well, mothers are the caring souls.They endure the most pain in their life.Common as it may sound, but i have to emphasize this. One day when i would become a husband to my wife, i would realize than carrying 5 kgs of life isn t a pretty easy task. Lol, i tried once and i couldn t bare it for even 30 minutes.

About my mum-Well, she s uniquely orthodox, with a keen interest in imparting asian values with a western thinking. I like the liberty given to me and the advice she restlessly feed upon me ever since i had the box called mind. Many desis around the world seem to lack cultural inclination.I would say we as teens are drawn to the raggae, hip hop culture and the surrounding...I wouldn t say its entirely wrong but it's important to realize our roots...Its the biggest gift given to me by my mum

Love you, mum

And Thanks keshi,i m sure you ll be a great mum...you are already treating your fellow bloggers with equal love and care....the utmost quality of a mum

Nav

SCRIBBLEZ TO WAKEUP said...

Hey...Very sweet thinking about dedicating a post to moms....Personally I cant talk about one alluring quality about my mom. It would be way to unfair for all the other precious things she represents and sends down...But as I have a post "Ma is Tear, Ma is Smile", one of my first posts- I still say just that~~~ Have a wonderful weekend:)

PRADEEP K. said...

Mother - the only woman ion earth who truly loves me with all her heart for who I am!

I don't think i need say anything more.

My best wishes to every mother. Wishing you all the happiness in the world.


Thank you Keshi, for giving me this opportunity. :)

Cheers!

Sudeep said...

Happy Mothers Day to all the moms of the world.. i hope they all will invite me for a dinner for this
n make sure tht every single day of the year is a Mothers Day henceforth

ur mom is a lovely human being Keshi..

i luv my mom for all reasons better known to me... n wish i have the same mom in each rebirth (if at all rebirths do take place)

but also more coz she is one of the gr8est n learned persons i have met till now

happyyy weekend hugggzzzzz!!!

Neha said...

hmmmmm! most alluring aspect of my mom.. works tirelessly, she's so protective abt us, though i end up fighting with her bcos of this at times.. yet .. and no matter what happens.. whether i fight with her, shout at her (i shudnt :( ) she still forgives me everytime.. she's always giving more than she gets.. i thin i can go on and on.. :)

ishita said...

:-)...thanks Keshi! I kinda forgot all abt it!

...and at the risk of sounding selfish...i wish it wz Mother's Weekend!! rather than just a day ;-)!

ummm...on a more serious note...the thing i love most abt my mom is simply that she's always there...not just for me but everyone at home...just that feeling "mummy's there" gives us such a strong sense of security, contentment and peace...

and keshi:), unlike me she's an amazing cook! d best ever!:)

...two statements mom used often while i grew up..."fight ur own battles" and "don't do things u can't own up to"...(be it wen i had fights wid my brothers/cousins, when i started workin or when i started my own family)...are going to stay wid me forever...

if i were to emulate anyone in being a mommy...i'd want to be like her...:-)

Nikita said...

Mothers are - simply stewards of our lives. She nurtures, protects, guides, provides for usuntil they we ready to go out into the big wide world and live our own lives. She builds the foundation of our dreams. The foundation that forms the character within us of courage, strength, honesty, self-confidence, perseverance, among other things.

I believe that's the most 'Alluring' aspect(s) of ALL Mother's.

Wanderer said...

Stud said...

The gift of love
is what
you have instilled
into this garden’s heart
Eternal
in my memory
as times and trials
carry us wayward

Kindness of warm
and gentle hand
linger by my side
And now
with pride
I walk the road of life
with love
Because of you

Your Son,
Aryan

Autumn Storm said...

:-) Thanks Keshi, x

Your mother sounds wonderful, besides you are a credit to her! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

sittingnut said...

heyy mate !
wish your mother and all the mothers here a happy mothers day !

What do you think is the most 'Alluring' aspect(s) of your Mother?
well she is very strong willed,brave, and have a strong sense of justice. she is not afraid of anyone or anything. i think she is strongest and bravest person i know and i admire her very much bc of that.
she acts according to her convictions and likes to get her way which is not bad since she is also usually right.
but it makes it hard to live with her. i always quarrel with her if i stay with my parents for any long period of time. we get on with each other fine when i don't live with her. i almost never quarrel with my father. they suit each other very well actually. :-)

hope you have a great weekend with your mother. :-)

Trée said...

When the shiott hits the fan and everyone else runs for cover, mom is there. Nuff said. :-)

Now git ur arse over to that bridge. :-D

Happy Mother's Day to All the Mothers in the World!

I think a mother is undefined soul...where one definition only cannot summarize about her...!

As a kid my mother was very strict...I always used to perform best to make her happy...and you know what she never praised me ever ...and one day I overheard my parents conversation where my dad was saying she did so good in her studies n hockey too why you never praise her... :) and my mom's reply was...am very proud of her and feel very great to be her mom but I dont want to praise her on her face coz I fear that shouldnt go into her head :)
Thats mother I will say :)

Cheers

Gangadhar said...

Sweet post..
Happy Mother's day...
And i miss my mother..She has been there in my hometown,Kakinada..quite far from my place...

Jo said...

The greatest lesson my mom taught me is never be in debt to anyone and spend according to your income and save something for future.

Vanathi said...

I miss my mom... Want to go home to see her :(

Himu said...

I have a nice and not so nice relationship w my mom. But I am sure w/o her, I would be very much in pain. I wish that she stays with me forever. I am selfish lah

Orikinla Osinachi. said...

If there was ever a perfect mother, she must be my beloved mother Mrs. Gladys Eke of blessed memory. I lost my mother on May 26, 1993 and since then my life has changed. And I would have taken my life when my mother was killed in a ghastly auto-accident on her way to work, but for the sake of my younger brothers and younger sister I decided to live to look after them on behalf of my late mother. And I must confess that since my mother died, I don't really care anymore for my own happiness. My happiness is not complete without my mother.

My mother was perfect in her love for others. She took in my friend who was homeless and one day when a female pupil from a poor family who was not feeling well couldn't go home, my mother brought her into our home to nurse her and sent for her parents who came to take their daughter home.

Whoever has seen me has seen my mother. I called my mother the "daughter of God".

tt said...

On the other hand, I would put it this way: Not to eat anything which creates a hue or cry.

Will Powers said...

I think a mom is a title, if you're kind to your kids - you're a mom, if you're cruel you're not.

saby said...

What if i told u guys
i didnt love my dad as much as i loved my mom



u see my dad and mom didnt have a happy married life

i had to take sides
i chose dad

i regret it now
my judging my parents

it takes 2 hands to clap

saby said...

Keshi,

never marry a guy who loves his mom too much


the guy will always compare u with his mom

your cooking is not good not as good as moms cooking

we cant go out to a movie, mom will be alone

when u go out he will hold moms hand not yours

if u r drowning and his mom is drowning too ....

The Phosgene Kid said...

I do miss her

Sudarshan said...

Well however much you praise or serve your mom,its always less. Moms are gifts from God. You can be confident at any given point that whatever you do, your mom will always be there on your side. I love my Mom: I can't live without her :-) Sacrifices made my a mom are simply beyond the understanding of kids. God, please give me a chance to serve my mom:-) Great post keshi:-) Enjoy your weekend!!!

Yashita said...

hmnnn...tough question! there are many things about mums in general...well, I am sure all moms are like this, but what I find great and alluring(?) about my mom or nay mom in general is that no matter what you do, no matter what mistake you commit(unless u dont murder someone!!!)...no matter how many times you shout at her, dont listen to her, she still forgives you! you just ahve to make that puupy dog face, say sorry, and if you have behaved very bad-then shed a few tears, she will instantly melt and forgive you!!!

and that is so difficult!! but then she is your mother!!

and the way they care and worry about...no matter wat!!! just the way they love you so much!! I think that sets them apart!!!

suniieee said...

mothers are the ones who will always be there for you

The Girl Who Sold The World said...

What a sweet post! I'm one of those people who never let a day pass without arguing with mom or atleast having some tiny spat. But still, in a few hours, it's all back to normal and it's MOM who always initiates truce. :D Guess moms do have something special about them. Cheers for them! :D
And boo to the person who just kept aside ONE measly day for mothers. Stupid creature...what about the rest of the 364 days? :P

thanks for reminding us of it!! ^^
yeah my mom is also smart and helpful.
other family members won't give me their hands when im in troubles.
but mom is the only one who always stand by me. love her!
happy mothers day!!! xxx

saby said...

just because she gave birth to u
dont make her a mother


in india moms conceive a child
do a test to determine gender of the child and have her aborted
dis happens in the metros

in the villages they give birth to the female child and put her on the door steps of Mother Theresa homes

the lady who adopts the child is the real mother

"Keshi, never marry a guy who loves his mom too much. the guy will always compare u with his mom. your cooking is not good not as good as moms cooking. we cant go out to a movie, mom will be alone..."


Crap! That is nothing but a big load of crap. You have just surpassed yourself, Saby. Congratulation, you have broken your own records!

Maya Cassis said...

Mothers are the most precious things in the world.We do not realise their value until we have to leave them.
I didn't speak to my mom for two years because she didn't support my faith in something.And when I met her again,it felt like a huge dam had burst between us and liberated us.
I will never allow myself to be in that situation again.
I was lucky to be given a second chance.

wallycrawler said...

My Mom's favorite band is "Midnight Oil" . She's 70sumthin . A few years ago I gave my Mum tickets to a "Midnight Oil" concert at a Toronto club . My Dad had to have surgery but she went anyway with her 80sumthin friend . The band couldn't believe it when they came on stage and to old ladies where sitting up front rock'n to "Beds Are Burn'n" .

LOL...She kills me !

Darius said...

Fairness - definitely something major.

With my mom, I think the thing that stood out was her joy in what each of us was. She didn't have any specific ideas of what "type" of boy or girl we needed to be. Wasn't living out her ego through her kids at all.

~~Sittingnut

hellooooooo :)


**wish your mother and all the mothers here a happy mothers day !

ty!


**well she is very strong willed,brave, and have a strong sense of justice.

No wonder u turned out so great...cos u got a greta Mum!


**i think she is strongest and bravest person i know and i admire her very much bc of that.

thats great!


**she acts according to her convictions and likes to get her way which is not bad since she is also usually right.

hehe Mums r always right na...


**we get on with each other fine when i don't live with her. i almost never quarrel with my father. they suit each other very well actually. :-)

well some ppl r better off when they r far away from each other...even if it's family...guess u both have very strong but perhaps conflicting personalities. But all's good as long as u luv n appreciate each other...

Thanks mate!







~~Trée

**When the shiott hits the fan and everyone else runs for cover, mom is there. Nuff said. :-)

lol good one mate!


**Now git ur arse over to that bridge. :-D

hehe I will I will awwww...:):)








~~Dawn

hey Dawn!


**I think a mother is undefined soul...where one definition only cannot summarize about her...!

so true!


**and my mom's reply was...am very proud of her and feel very great to be her mom but I dont want to praise her on her face coz I fear that shouldnt go into her head :)

ur Ma is very humble and down-to-Earth...I like that. My mum's the same actually. I used to get so many prizes back in school...my mum attended all Prize Givings but never said anything so great to me, prasing me etc...she just was there for me but never too complimenting towards me. I guess thats why I turned out to be humble too. Great mums we have :)








~~Gangadhar

**And i miss my mother..She has been there in my hometown,Kakinada..quite far from my place...

aww...she lives there now?







~~Jo

**The greatest lesson my mom taught me is never be in debt to anyone and spend according to your income and save something for future.

WOW great lessons! Thats such good advice from a great lady!








~~Vanathi

**I miss my mom... Want to go home to see her :(

awww....

:*(








~~Himu


**I have a nice and not so nice relationship w my mom. But I am sure w/o her, I would be very much in pain. I wish that she stays with me forever. I am selfish lah

aww we all want our mums to stay with us forever...it's not being selfish..it's too much love...









~~Orikinla Osinachi.

hello hows ya?


**If there was ever a perfect mother, she must be my beloved mother Mrs. Gladys Eke of blessed memory.

Long live Mrs.Gladys Eke's memory!


**And I would have taken my life when my mother was killed in a ghastly auto-accident on her way to work, but for the sake of my younger brothers and younger sister I decided to live to look after them on behalf of my late mother.

thats sad..such a tragic end of a great life. U know I always thought if I could live w.o. my Ma...I dun think so. If she dies, maybe I'll die too...


**And I must confess that since my mother died, I don't really care anymore for my own happiness. My happiness is not complete without my mother.

so true...when someone u really love dies, nothing seems to matter in this world anymore..it happens.


**My mother was perfect in her love for others.

she sounds like a very generous and compassionate soul...a rare.


**Whoever has seen me has seen my mother. I called my mother the "daughter of God".

awww mate...I really feel like I've known ur Ma now...wow shes amazing...Im sure u must miss her so much!








~~Twisted Truth

**On the other hand, I would put it this way: Not to eat anything which creates a hue or cry.

:)








~~Will Powers

**I think a mom is a title, if you're kind to your kids - you're a mom, if you're cruel you're not.

aww there's some truth in that....a Mum cant be cruel to her kids na...mebbe strict but not cruel.

~~Saby

**What if i told u guys
i didnt love my dad as much as i loved my mom

well I dun think its that u didnt love ur dad as much as u loved ur Ma..it's cos u were more attached and more free with ur Ma than with ur dad...


**u see my dad and mom didnt have a happy married life i had to take sides i chose dad
i regret it now
my judging my parents

thats sad...:(


**it takes 2 hands to clap

yes...


**never marry a guy who loves his mom too much

I'd like a guy who loves and respects his Mum :) but not overly that it affects his love life...u know, loving ur Ma is one thing but loving ur Ma so much that u cant make decisions for urself is altogether another thing! :)








~~The Phosgene Kid

**I do miss her

aww where is she now?







~~Sudarshan


**Well however much you praise or serve your mom,its always less. Moms are gifts from God.

So true!


**You can be confident at any given point that whatever you do, your mom will always be there on your side.

True...they never desert ya...never!


**I love my Mom: I can't live without her :-) Sacrifices made my a mom are simply beyond the understanding of kids.

Spot on! And thanks Sudharshan!








~~Yashita

hey Yash!


**about my mom or nay mom in general is that no matter what you do, no matter what mistake you commit(unless u dont murder someone!!!)...no matter how many times you shout at her, dont listen to her, she still forgives you!

so true! Forgiving as ever ha...


**you just ahve to make that puupy dog face, say sorry, and if you have behaved very bad-then shed a few tears, she will instantly melt and forgive you!!!

lol Yash!


**and the way they care and worry about...no matter wat!!! just the way they love you so much!! I think that sets them apart!!!

yes..their Love is so unique and so unconditional....







~~Suniieee

**mothers are the ones who will always be there for you

True...and thanks dear!








~~The Girl Who Sold The World

hey Girl!


**I'm one of those people who never let a day pass without arguing with mom or atleast having some tiny spat.

lol cute!


**But still, in a few hours, it's all back to normal and it's MOM who always initiates truce. :D Guess moms do have something special about them. Cheers for them! :D

they sure do :)


**And boo to the person who just kept aside ONE measly day for mothers. Stupid creature...what about the rest of the 364 days? :P

lol haha thats so true too!








~~Tarun.

**awww~ i forgot to buy a mothers day gift.
thanks for reminding us of it!! ^^

lol goshh u forgot? awww...


**yeah my mom is also smart and helpful.
other family members won't give me their hands when im in troubles.
but mom is the only one who always stand by me. love her!

So true...no matter what happens, Mum is always there na...







~~Saby again :)

**just because she gave birth to u
dont make her a mother
in india moms conceive a child
do a test to determine gender of the child and have her aborted
dis happens in the metros

I know...but my MUM didnt do that to me...so Im proud of my Ma :)


**in the villages they give birth to the female child and put her on the door steps of Mother Theresa homes

Such ppl r not even worthy of being mums...


**the lady who adopts the child is the real mother

true...biological or not, the one who loves and cares for ya since childhood, is ur Ma...









~~Amutha

**We are planning for a surprise bash tonite..for 4 mothers in my home; grandma, mom, 2 aunties

**Mothers are the most precious things in the world.We do not realise their value until we have to leave them.

so true!


**I didn't speak to my mom for two years because she didn't support my faith in something.And when I met her again,it felt like a huge dam had burst between us and liberated us.

my goshhhh 2 whole years? I cant even stay w.o.talking to Ma for 2 mins..well thats cos Im a big chatter box lol! aww Maya Im so glad u 2 r in talking terms again...


**I will never allow myself to be in that situation again.
I was lucky to be given a second chance.

**LOL...She kills me !

LOL na..she's the kinda woman who teaches us that age is only a number...it's the attitude that matters...long live ur mum Wally!








~~Darius

**With my mom, I think the thing that stood out was her joy in what each of us was. She didn't have any specific ideas of what "type" of boy or girl we needed to be. Wasn't living out her ego through her kids at all.

so great to be like that...wow, I definitely learnt something from ur Ma...thank u!


Keshi.

karmic_jay said...

Nothing distinctive about her, but in my eyes she is...

I was born very late in their marriage, first born son (have a sis).
Dad spent a lot of his time lookig after his family getting them married and all. By the time we were 12 yrs old he had retired, he took up another job. My mum did not go to school, but she did more that her part, teaching herself to read and write and she started a home business, so we could get an education.
I am where I am cos of my mom and my dad. She was always loving, selfless and giving. If I can be even half as good as her, I would think my life was well lived.
I was always a bit partial to my mom, my way of supporting her in what was a ptriarchial houselhold, but both of them did their bit in their own way.
Today I just don't take any sides, but she is the rock in my dad's life though he may not say it .. he knows it.

Keshi said...

~~Karmic_Jay

Hey Jay hows ya?

** She was always loving, selfless and giving.

I think ur Ma is a very beautiful soul...

Thanks!

Keshi said...

And I had a brilliant Mums Day with Ma and Sis...we went out for lunch after showering her with loads of gifts and kisses in the morning :):)

Thanks all, hope u had a great Mums Day too.

The thing that i love and admire about my mum is her will power. Thinking of the paths and journies in life she was given to walk through. she is so strong to the extend that i neva saw her broke down infront of me ever. That is what makes her so special and outstanding that i want no substitute. :) my mum is special. and i love her. beautiful post keshi

Shikha said...

I am not able to comment on your new post cos it seems theres objectionable content:D

Contented said...

Hey Keshi! Late again...was relaxing with books over weekend...hehehe...

Hmmm..to be fact I never celebrated mother's day in a special way. I think single day isn't enough for me to just convey my love and gratitude. sometimes I wonder may be lifetime is too short for that....:) I just wanna lead a life which makes her(mom) happy....:)

We would not be here without Moms - and my Mom was/still is my hero even though she has been gone 3 years now. I love and miss you Mom.

My 3 children are the best a Mom could want, and I'm truly blessed to also be a Mom.

Nice post Keshi - very nice.

Keshi said...

~~Jewel_Rays

hey Amy it sounds like our mums r also similar :):) I think u have a great mum..not only cos u wrote so many great things abt her but also cos from what I know of u...ur a truly a remarkable person...a child portrays his/her mum so I reckon she's a very great lady!

Happy Mums Day to ur Ma n hugggggggggggz!

Hugggggggggz Terry!

cheesemeister said...

I have a 16 year old son. I think there should be a Son's Day in honor of him because he's put up with having me as a mother, and isn't a royal screwup in spite of his messed up family!
I always loved my son very much and have never physically abused him. But for most of his life I had bipolar disorder that was undiagnosed until 2 years ago and I would have emotional outbursts. A couple of times some really awful things came out of my mouth that I despised myself for. After finally getting the right diagnosis and lithium instead of antidepressants which only made things worse, he said he noticed a difference. It took him awhile to forgive the bad things I said (they were few and far between but once is too much) but last year he was finally able to and we have been able to grow closer again. Hopefully things will just keep getting better for both of us.

Parenthood--it ain't for sissies!
Neither is mental illness.
So I guess I must be pretty damn tough!
Happy belated mother's day to everyone.

Keshi said...

~~Cheesemeister

hey lady huggggggggggggggz! Belated Mums Day wishes to ya!

awww ur son sounds like a gem...I always tell my mum too that there has to be a daughter's/son's days too hehe...but I dun think Im no way close to the gem that ur son is...seems like he's put up with alot of troubles in life.


**But for most of his life I had bipolar disorder that was undiagnosed...

ur the 3rd blogger I know who has BiPolar...I know abt it so much cos I read abt mental illnesses cos of a friend who died of suicide...he has bipolar. I hope ur case is not that severe. Since ur taking Lithium and u do see a difference now, Im so glad for u and ur son...please take care. And if u ever feel like talking, Im here ok??

BIG HUGGGGGGGGGGGGGZ!


Keshi.

cheesemeister said...

Thank you Keshi! :-)
I appreciate your kindness. You're truly a good person!
Not everybody understands that people with mental illness aren't necessarily "crazy." It's just something we have to deal with, like any other kind of bodily defect. But you treat everybody with equal respect and I really appreciate that!
Peace.
