Random Thoughts' Monday: The resilience of mothers...

With each day of this winter break that passes by, I am more in awe of my mother. I had no idea what she put up with when I was growing up! My boys are home, and half the time I have only one on hand, but even then I hardly manage to get anything done. Just look at last week - I preferred to stave off the blogging because I knew I wouldn't be able to do do it, full stop.

I recall my mum cooking lunch, and cooking dinner, and even cooking something for tea every single day! She also found time to do all the housework, and she even caught some TV during the day. And never did she complain, or go, like me, wailing about not enough time to do everything.

Today I'm convinced she is the original Superwoman. I mean, leave my mum in a kitchen and she can whip you up a three-dish meal in under 2 hours. And clear out the sink too in that time. I'm lucky if I can cook dinner in 2 hours!

Not to mention that I was always talking and pestering and trailing after her when I was growing up... How ever did she do it?

Here's to my mum, and to hoping her wisdom and patience did not skip my chromosome pool!

From Mauritius with love,
