Dear Tanya …
Happy Birthday Tanya Nambiar
As I try and pen down my thoughts on your birthday the memory of past 29 years go across like a flashback. The day you were born, your first day at school, your first tooth, your first step your first song, you have come a long way and I am really proud of you.
You are on the threshold of life where you will soon be married and I am going to really miss you , miss your chirpy laughter, miss those mother daughter trips, miss those fights we have had whether at a mall or home but those are all precious moments for us to cherish .
How time flies .When did you become an almost 29 year old? Where has the time gone? There are moments I still feel you dancing in my belly, nuzzling your tiny face into the nape of my neck as I burp you. You are and will always be my baby, my angel.
I loved every minute of our time together, when I was pregnant with you. You taught me intimacy at a time when I needed it the most.
I have relished in witnessing your development.
Your favorite line is, “I can do it by myself.”
There is just something about you. Something out of this world and I respect it. I always will. I promise to support you in whatever you decide to do in life because I know it is your journey to have.
Whatever you do and wherever you go, I will hold your hand and I will walk with you. I miss the day your tiny hand outgrew mine, when I can’t wrap my pink finger around your wrist as you hop over every crack on your way into school. Nothing ever stays the same, but one thing: my boundless love for you.
I am just grateful you chose me to be your mother.
Tanya, I love you from the roots of the earth to the moon and back. You and your brother are the loves of my life. Being your mom has been the greatest gift of my life. Raising you to fulfill your purpose in life, is my purpose, one I cherish.
I’m not worried about you, because you know what you are doing, even when you don’t think you do.
You will always be safe, you will always be protected, and you will always be loved.
Go adventure, be brave, be bold, be courageous because you are meant to discover, to create, to learn, to experience it all and I will love you every step of the way, no matter what.
And this is YOU for ME
An angel sent from heaven
For me she left her wings ..
I wonder if she knows how
much joy to me she brings.
She illuminates all my days
with her charm and smile ..
She helps me gain perception
on only things worthwhile.
Her flawless face, lights up a room
she’s so gentle, soft and sweet ..
Delicate and delightful
the nicest girl you’ll meet.
She tries her very best to
always do what’s right ..
Her caring gentle nature
to watch is a delight.
When she sees someone suffering
she goes straight to their aide ..
She will do all she can to help
that’s just how she was made.
She makes me proud in all she does
so much happiness she brings ..
She’s my daughter, she’s my angel
sent to earth, without her wings.
