I am coming back to blogging after the September Mega Marathon . A lot has happened in these two months , which has changed my life drastically . We know life has its own ways of dealing us and we should accept what comes our way with grace , but it gets hard when you loose your mother .

I really do not know where to start , she was such a great inspiration for me , in all fields . Without her life is definitely going on , but the vacuum – it simply can’t be filled . She was a tower of strength and I miss her practically every minute . Very hard for me to express what I feel , though I feel grateful to God for making me spend one full day with her before she left us .

It was Mom’s 85 th Birthday and my nephew planned a surprise party for her , invited neighbors , her close friends and relatives . He made a Insta photo booth where they clicked pictures with everyone ! My sister in law baked more than 40 cakes as the return gift , which mom gave everyone . It was from that day that she didn’t sound very good to me , so I went to see her . While returning she gave me a cake . Yes this is that special cake ! The sole cake that was left from the cakes my bhabhi had baked . I still wonder how she managed to bake so many in two days !

I had come home and enjoyed the delicious cake , I clicked pictures for recording special memories , not knowing what was in future . And now when I decided to start blogging , I felt this is where I should begin , giving her a ode . Ode to my Mom , a strong , elegant lady whom I will always look upon . Hope she is happy wherever she is and blessing her children . God Bless her .

Joining Bakeathon was a last minute idea , as I wanted to get back to routine . All posts are from my drafts . Some clicks are pretty old , but I can assure you the recipes are great . And yes, Bakeathon is an event where we post a bake every Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the month of December. The event is hosted by Srivalli and you can read about it here.
