Mom, I Freaking Love You...

Happy Mother's Day, to all the great moms out there, especially mine!
Here are few moments in Nargis Tapal's life.
The picture above is from her wedding day and the one below is from my wedding day.

My mom and her parents in Pakistan.

Teenage Dream.

Me and moms.

Mom and Dad in the Saudi mountain side.

The day my little sister was born. I was not excited about sharing my mom with her. I mean, we had a good thing going Mom, Dad and I. Who was this little person joining our crew? I remember thinking she couldn't be ours because she was so pink (photographic evidence provided) and we're brown. 

My parents together at my dad's launch party for his first book. After completing each chapter, my father would give it to my mom to review, before he'd send it to the editor. This is what you call team work.

There are so many special mom's in my life - my mother-in-law Gerry; my aunts Rehana, Nafisa, Fauzia, Shireen and more. My girlfriends who are now moms Geeta, Yasmin, Angela, Amee, and the rest of the incredible women I admire. Without you moms, us kids (even us big kids) wouldn't have a clue. 
Thanks for leading the way.
