We’ve seen you become a hurricane and
even turn into a rainbow just after you rain…
You’ve been an alarm clock to some and to some,
a warm blanket after a day-long run…
I’ve said a million times, I don’t want to be my mother
but secretly take pride in hearing, “she’s exactly like her mum.”
You’re our emotional barometer and our guidebook to survive
there’s no match to your home remedies and your told-you-so eyes…
We see you wear your badge of honor for being sleep-deprived
but mother, take rest, we want the best for your eyes.
Because for nine months, we see the world through your eyes
It pains me to see you squinting through the harsh sunlight.
And because you’re my universe, you’re my nest,
here I go on a mission to find you your supermom shades.
This mother’s day, you and your eyes deserve the best…
Yes, you do!
Maa, mama, mom, amma – mothers come in all different forms. But what each of our mothers has in common is the impact they’ve had on our lives. Right from the time when our hearts first beat, they call us the most beautiful thing they’ve ever seen on Earth. So this Mother’s Day, let’s help protect her eyes so that she may always see the beauty around her. To make things easier, here’s a gifting guide for eyewear that’s both functional and fashionable.
To Our Supreme Protector!
Dear mom, thank you for always being our safe place where we could run to whenever life got blurry. I see now you have got a little more than a few grey strands showing and you may need the clarity of a pair of glasses. Like you would have helped with everything for me, maa I will help find the right glasses for you. And it won’t be wrong to say that a pair of sunnies protect like a mother! So I have chosen the ultimate protection of UV 400 for your eyes with the Brown Tortoise Full Rim Wayfarer Sunglasses by John Jacobs. Also, because you add glitter to all of our lives, the Gold Full Rim Rectangle Eyeglasses by John Jacobs shall sparkle your look and life.
To Our Emotional Barometer!
Dear mom, thank you for holding my hand on my first day of school and reassuring me that everything would always be okay. Much to our surprise, it does get better! Thank you for showing me what it means to be selfless. For showering me with unconditional love. For my overflowing grief or moments of existentialism, I always have you as my go-to person, maa. Your eyes see what the world misses and that is why your kind peepers deserve the protection of the polarized Grey Full Rim Aviator Sunglasses by John Jacobs. To the one who kept me going in life, this day is our chance to give you something that holds tight and fits right like the Matte Brown Full Rim Square Eyeglasses by John Jacobs that come with snug fit temples.
To Our All-Time Fashion Inspiration!
Dear mom, thank you for letting me steal your entire wardrobe, outfit by outfit. You taught the very essence of true fashion through your classic six yards. So when I take my vows in your classic Banarasi masterpiece, don’t you cry mother because seeing you, I will too. Okay, you can cry a little for me but only under the veil of a cool pair of sunglasses. Deal? Now such special sunglasses need to have extra coverage so I wonder if a complementing pair of Silver Full Rim Square Sunglasses by John jacobs would do the job right? Given it has extra coverage on the sides, it should. And for running errands and juggling between the endless functions, you may need your specs, something like the Golden Pink Full Rim Round Eyeglasses by John Jacobs that has a celebratory look and feel. Because mom, you’re no less than a celebrity to me.
To The Hustler Moms!
Thank you for teaching me how to be a strong, independent woman that works for what she wants. It’s almost impossible to reciprocate your love and efforts, all we can do is give you what you truly deserve. Yes, the right glasses for your client meetings, presentations, and long days poring over a computer screen. For you to keep selecting the perfect curtains and carpets on a whim, I’m looking at none other than the Silver Full Rim Oval Eyeglasses by John Jacobs that’s super light and slim. This can get you going through the day without feeling heavy on your face. Even after a million instructions, you still go grocery shopping all on your own. So with your mask and sanitizer, keep a protective pair of Rose Gold Full Rim Round Sunglasses by John Jacobs that will also save you from the sun.
To The Ones Who Fly To Bring Food To The Nest!
Dear mom, you who single-handedly raised me despite the struggles that came along, you deserve a world of happiness. You are an extraordinary woman that society constantly tries to fit into a box. But you were always meant to make your own rules, and that’s why I see you as the most amazing person on Earth. Here’s a pair of awesome Gold Full Rim Aviator Sunglasses by John Jacobs for your squinting struggles in the sun and a Matte Silver Full Rim Aviator Eyeglasses by John Jacobs for all your black-tie affairs.
