Losing your father and then watching your mother fall prey to depression is never easy. But it is absolutely inspiring to watch your mother make it out of it all just because of you. Amna attempts to share just how super her ammi is.
As we all know that every mother has some special place in her child’s heart. The word Mother itself has a pure definition because she is the one who can take place of any other person. She never gives up no matter what. My mother is no ordinary woman, she is my superhero. A superwoman who inspires me. She is the most beautiful and graceful woman out of all that I have ever met.
Only a few can survive the loss of loved ones over the years. But being the strong woman that she is, she managed to make it through the loss of her father, her mother and then eventually her husband. We saw how difficult it was for her but she did it nonetheless.
My father passed away in 2014 and his death hit us with brutal realisations. It was shocking for all of us especially for ami because none of us could comprehend the fact that he was gone and never coming back. The feeling that he left us killed us inside.
Ami was devastated, she tried to act normal but couldn’t. We saw her praying and crying at nights. Not knowing what will she do now, how will she be able to take care of her children? I still remember the fight she had with depression, I remember when she was admitted to the hospital and fear of losing her killed us all over again. But Alhamdulillah, she made it through, she managed it just because of us. She motivated me to continue my studies further, I successfully graduated with my MBA.
She never once expressed just how lonely she was or how she was struggling to give us a better life. She was always there for me, whenever I was upset or sick or happy or whatever, ami was always there to talk, to give advice. Words are not enough to thank her for her unconditional love, care, support and everything she does for us.
It is extremely difficult for me to spend this much time apart from her. I miss spending time with her as I haven’t got much chance to after my marriage. My ami is my strength ❤, she is my super mom. No matter how much I say I love you, I can never express my true love in words.

Please take care of your mothers because their love is priceless, the way they protect, love us, care for us, no one can and no one will.
Never take them for granted,
