A MOM OF BOUNDLESS WISDOM AND COMPASSION
Celebrating My Wife Chandana for Mother’s Day
T his month, with Mother’s Day right around the corner, I’d like to take a moment to honor and appreciate my wife and the best mom I’ve ever known, Chandana. Ever since our first child came into the world years ago, she’s been there for our kids every step of the way with wisdom and compassion far beyond anything I’ve ever seen. I GIVE CHANDANA ALL THE CREDIT FOR THE REMARKABLY CLOSE RELATIONSHIPS WE HAVE WITH ONE ANOTHER. Children don’t come with any “how-to” manual, but when we had our son, Chandana’s preparedness was unparalleled. Because she’s been a practicing pediatric occupational therapist since she graduated college, she was equipped with years of training from the start. That’s not to say that her training made raising our first child easy. Though she’s a trained professional in pediatric care, it was difficult for her to translate that training to her own life and her own children at the start. We were overjoyed at the birth of our son, but we had a tough time at the beginning, as all parents do when they’re juggling the minutiae of daily life with this vibrant new being for which they’re suddenly responsible. But we learned quickly. Without any family nearby to help us out, we had to. We offered each other support at every stage and made sure to enjoy every free moment with our growing family.
No matter how overwhelmed I might have felt by the complexities of raising children in those early days, Chandana
was never lost for a single second. As our kids grew up, it
was incredible to watch as she treated them with her unselfish kindness and keen wisdom.
Today, even though our kids are in their teenage years, they are still eager to spend a lot of time with us. I give Chandana all the credit for the remarkably close relationships we have with one another. It is due to her efforts that we have a family who genuinely enjoys each other’s company. Though we avoid going out to eat in the busy restaurants on actual Mother’s Day, we’ll make a point to take Chandana out somewhere the week before or after as a family. On the actual holiday, we’ll probably spend some time picking out plants for Chandana to plant in the garden this coming summer. And most years, the kids will give her some handmade token of their appreciation for everything she’s done for them. Honestly, it’s impossible for me to express just how grateful I am to have Chandana in my life and the lives of our children. Words fall short of adequately describing her talents as a mother and the breadth of her love for her kids. I can’t imagine ever raising a family without a mom like her by my side.
