2 months ago The Calm & The Storm.
As promised, here is the first of "Women that have shaped me and my life" and my #WomanCrushWednesday and the woman that have made a huge impact on my life. My mom.
Anything I'd say would not do her any justice. But I'll give it a try.
She is the definition of "unconditional love" and "patience". Regardless of all life's trials, she has somehow managed to still stand with me and love me. No questions asked. Even though we are a world apart in our personalities: she's the sweetest and kindest human and I'm more on the rude and blunt side.... We somehow work well together...(go figure lol) but I think I grew to be the woman I am today because I've learned from her. She would never speak harshly to anyone, and take everyone's bullshit... And I've learned to speak up and hold my ground... She's calm... I'm hot tempered. You'll know exactly what's on my mind because I will spell it out for you, she will just look at you, and most likely shed some tears and then later she will think of the things she could have said but never did. Lol
Oh and she's an amaaaaaaaazing cook naam khuda. I think that's where my shikamboo-ness comes from lol. I've been lucky enough to pick up cooking from her from a young age and so this shikamboo-ness shall continue.
We are polar opposite but somehow the same in the sense that we love unconditionally and go out of our way for everyone to make sure their needs are met before ours.
Funny enough, to date my mom will not get food first, regardless of how much is on the table until we have all gotten our food. And will ask you a million times if you've gotten "some of this" and "some of that" to the point that we joke about it.
I've been privileged to be her daughter because she may be the soft and sweet one, growing up with her has taught me to be a strong and independent woman I am today. I knew if I was as sweet as her, everyone will walk all over me and thus this very respectful "Zubaan-baaz" Muska was created lol.
She is the WIFE, MOTHER, and SISTER, everyone wish for but only few are fortunate to have ♥️ Ps. Mom please don't go kissing me all over when I'm home now lol
