sweet, sweet Mom.

Happy birthday to my beautiful, kind, selfless, wonderful mom!
I love birthdays. I love celebrating birthdays with people I love and giving them as much attention as I can on their special day! I could sit here and make a list of a million reasons why I love my mom and why I think she's THE.BEST, but I'm going to actually do something a little different. Instead of ME writing reasons why I love her, I want YOU to leave me a comment telling me why YOU love her. Got it?
Mom reads my blog daily (except for weekends), so on Monday morning she she'll be so excited to see just how much she's loved!
Happy weekend and happy birthday MOM!

Hey Laura, I have known your mom for a long time (before you were born). She is a great bunco player (even if she is losing it a little now)! LOL She has always been a great friend and someone that I know I can call on if I need to. Hope you had a great birthday Melita. I know it was fun with all your family there to celebrate it with you.

The comments about you, Melita, made by your girls are all one needs to see that you are one of the sweetest, kindest, most loving, and compassionate women on Earth! But, to me, your steadfast faith in our Lord is the basis for who you are!!! I shall never forget your kindness to our entire family during Austin's short time with us. You ARE amazing, and I am blessed to know you.

I LOVE that Mrs. Melita is so loving to her children, setting an example of a Godly woman. I hope I can be just like her to my adult children someday!

Mama Lita is such a Godly example to her family, friends, and community. She has such a spirit of sincerity and generosity. She has made me feel like a part of the Tomlinson family! Love you, MIMS

Laura, Your mom is absolutely one of the sweetest people that I know. Your family was one of the first that we met when we moved to Starkville, and we will be forever grateful that she brought you and Mary S. to meet the "new girl"!
Melita is truly a shining example to others, and I know that her greatest birthday present is watching her grown daughers now and seeing how you all follow that example. Has anyone ever called you "Little Melita"?!?

I'm late on this, but Melita is certainly wonderful. She even washed my laundry a time or two in when I was in college. Wow.
