If there was one person who would make me reflect upon myself, my life and my past and future actions , that would be, Lokesh, my 8yr old son.
I consider Lokesh to be a gift from god. He has shown me how to love unconditionally, how to show appreciation and most importantly that a family member by your side means half of any problem solved.
Since the age of two, Lokesh will always encourage me by always saying nice things to me. He will tell me I looked good in my new dress, how he enjoyed my cooking, how the songs I sing to him make him happy and how he loves my hugs and kisses. He shows me so much love that it has been such a motivation to me to be a better mother and a better person in my every day life.
He not only encourages me, he gives me comfort when I am tired or sick by giving me a hug or a shoulder massage. He also has shown me how to be thankful for what we have. I was amazed the first time he told me, ” Thank you mummy, for taking such good care of me”, when all I did was check on him and give him medicine when he was sick with a bad flu. I thought it was my duty to take care of my son but as a child he has shown that we should never take anyone for granted.
I love you Lokesh, you are certainly the person who has brought out the best in me as a mother, as a person. I am sure you will love and be loved always and be a source of motivation for many others who you will meet in your life ahead.
