Mother and an educator!
Jayamma Chechi
That is who she was!

Both of which I can relate to.

(Sunny Chettan and I shared the same grandmother)

Our mothers are visible signs of our God’s great love here on earth. They seem to understand our hearts without words.

I ask myself today:
How did I witness God through chechi? Specifically, how did her daily actions on this earth inspire me to want to know the God she worshiped? How did she live LOUDLY and use her Holy Spirit given gifts?

The fruits that were visible to me were: kindness and gentleness.

Now I had to work it backwards to figure out which gifts must she have been endowed with?

Understanding and wisdom were definitely there!

Also, for a successful educator, these two gifts are critical to be truly effective in our vocations.

No one can teach us true understanding. It is a gift. Jayamma chechi had been given it and she used it well to serve others.

Jamie, Jikku, and Jimmy,
Today, We share in your loss.

As her children, we understand how painful this loss is. We are here for you.
Also, join us in your wounded stage to serve others that may be traveling in similar journey.

Let us self examine and identify the gifts we’ve been given and have the courage to live it out loudly to serve others in our daily lives.

May God Bless you.

Special people like you never departs from earth, for they are always alive in our hearts.
Dear Jayamma Aunty,
I still remember my mom telling me that you were the first person to hold me at the time I was born. I looked upon you as my mother. Your were a part of our life and have a great impact on us ,especially on my mom. You are and will be my mother's role model. You gave your sister (my mom) a handful of happy memories which will always be at a special place in her heart.I could never forget the beautiful smile you had on your face at the tough times,the courage you had shown in deep pain. Though your absence is very painful to us, we console ourselves knowing that you will be with the angels, only to bless us from heaven. Will miss you a lot aunty.
May your soul rest in peace.

Ann ( Graceamma's daughter )
