Today (the 13th) is my mom's birthday. I looked up her acrostic from last year, and I can't really come up with anything different. So I decided to use mommy for this one. I hope you don't mind. Here is my mommy's birthday acrostic.
M- MERCIFUL My mom is a very forgiving person. Lord knows I did my share of abusing her when I was growing up, and she might have been mad, but she always forgave. She is still that way today with everyone.
O- OBLIGING My mom will pretty much go out of her way to get you what you want. I saw this most when I was pregnant. When pregnant with Kaelyn and Rory, if I was craving anything, she made it or got it. Logan and Marley were a bit harder just because we moved, but whenever I saw her and was craving something, she would get/make it for me. She's just really loving.
M- MUSICAL I think I wrote about this on her last birthday. She's a singer. I haven't heard her in a while, but I grew up listening to her sing. Sometimes she would wake me up singing, "Good morning. Good morning. How are you today, today?"
M- MATERNAL This might seem obvious, but not all mothers are maternal. Take me for instance. HA! Seriously, she is a wonderful mother. If there were an "e" in mommy, I would use enabler. That's how great she is. I don't know of many days where her three girls haven't called just to check in and see how she's doing, or complain to her *ahem*, or see how our other sisters are doing. She must've done something right because we all can't live without her.
Y- YOUTHFUL I won't mention how old my mom is turning, but she doesn't look it or act like it. I mean...we all have aches and pains, but she just seems younger than her age. I think it's because as far back as I can remember, she's always used Oil Of Olay. I would use it too when she let me and sometimes when she didn't. ;) I still use it to this day too. Hopefully I get her youthful genes. Her genes compared to my dad, who doesn't look his age either, should keep me looking 17 like I do. HAHAHAHA!
Happy Birthday, Mommy! I love you and thank you for everything you do for all of us every day.
