Its strange that today is the 22nd, and I am talking about My son who was also born on the 22nd (of February). So, in 2012 I was blessed with this little angel, who is a gift from God. After a difficult delivery and a slight scare I held him in my arms for the first time and I knew right then that my Life belongs to that little angel in my arms. Through all the ups in downs in Life My baby has been my Inspiration and the  reason I have done the things I have. “Shubhya” means to become a blessing and how he did.


He gave me the strength to walk out of a abusive marriage, the confidence to start life over, the reason to live each day, the meaning to start life anew. When I look at him sleeping, without a care in the world, I hope he always stays in that world of awesomeness that he has created for himself. I know that he will grow up and have to face the harsh truths of life, and I promise to be there right beside him to help him along.


I promise to just let him be, to grow and discover himself and who he wants to be. I promise to cherish his every word and every dream. I will try to make every one of his dreams into reality. I promise to scold him every time he does something wrong, and hear him out when he says he has an explanation. I promise to be his biggest strength in life and never his weakness.


I hope that I can instill in him the all values that he will need to know right from wrong, and rather than telling him what to do help him make the right choice. I hope to teach him that whatever happens life is beautiful, and does not end with one mistake or a bad decision. I promise that however bad the circumstances and hard my day has been, I will always be his Mom first. I hope he knows that my heart is always open for him whatever choices he makes, routes he takes and decisions he makes.


Good or Bad he will always find solace in me, just like the way I find the strength to take on life everyday by looking at him or the peace I feel at his content sleep or the happiness I feel in his little smile. His small achievements will soon turn into something bigger in life and my boy will grow up, I hope to grow with him as a Mom. I learn so much from him everyday, the sense of wonder and achievement at the little moments and little things, I hope I don’t forget these important lessons he is teaching me as well.


With his birth I was born as a mother, and when he has to face the world , I will be reborn as a Mother, with each moment making our bond stronger (I hope) . I don’t know whether I will be a good parent, but I promise him that I will try my very hardest to give him my best each day, and help him deal with whatever the world throws at him the best I can.
