Happy Mother’s day to all the mum’s out there! 

A special one for my mum Oline Singh who has always been there for me. From taking full care of me during my painful and complicated pregnancy to taking care of her grand daughter as a baby. From making a cup of chai/tea to cooking delicious foods for me. 

Instead of giving yourself some much deserved rest at this age you’re helping me, your ill daughter, in every way possible just so I can get some rest from my chronic pains. 

Thank you Amma/mum for everything you have done and continue to do for me. I may not show it as much and as easily as I would like to but just so you know that I love you!!😘😘😘
