Today is your birthday

When she celebrates her birthday, it means that mine is just around the corner.  Today is her birthday.  POTEET. 
What is the meaning of a name? 
  is for petite, perfectly petite person
O  is for ornate, nothing plain here!
  is for thoughtful, the caring you.
E   is for enchant, for enchant you will.
E   is for expressive, not one to hold within.
T   is for thoughtful, the caring you.
Who is Poteet?  Mother nicknamed sibling #9, Poteet. 
We all have nicknames from: Ate, Kuya, Detse, Nilds, Beng, Tel, Jun-Jun, Danny, Poteet, Tyrone, Dondi, Angel and Lady, yours truly. 
I try to remember her birthday to figure out how out I am.  
This year, I thought I am older until I asked Poteet how old she will be.  Much to my chagrin, I am actually a couple of years younger than I thought.  So why do I want to get older?  Thinking older, age wise, makes me dream of retirement age.  Knowing my real age, that means I have to work two more years. 
There goes my dream.  Back to reality. 
Okay, this is not about me.  It’s about Poteet’s birthday,  
Happy Birthday, Poteet and here is a blessing song:  May the blessings of the Lord be upon you…  And you know the rest. 
As for the customary song:

  1. Happy belated b’day, Petite & my very best! 🙂 I can imagine the cute prononciation of “petite” with a British or a North-American accent… 🙂

    • Hi Melanie of Toulouse, France. My other Petite sister just returned from the south of France. And the birthday celebrant has a day off from family. 😛 Ciao.

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
