Jun was kidding me that I was more excited than Sasha. Kulang na lang daw ako magsuot ng belo (which I did after the program). HAAAY I was in full Anabelle Rama mode.
All my life, I was told I looked like this sexy actress / bold star so being told that my daughter resembles Mama Mary was really a far improvement and well worth a blog entry.
Here are photos of Sasha before going to her program and during the program proper in St. Paul College of Pasig:
Ok, ok apologize for the barrage of photos...don't say I didn't warn you. A hundred more photos will be found in my facebook account believe me...
Anyway, Sasha was representing the Lady of Perpetual Help. The other classrooms each had their own Mama Mary to represent. All of them were oh sooooo cute!!!!
Alright this is where I get serious. I always tell Sasha that looking like Mama Mary is not enough. What is important is she copies also Mama Mary's example on simplicity, modesty, faith and humility.
This is specially difficult during our modern times and harder for my girls because they have an over the top (O.A) mom. Good thing they have a dad whose strongest characteristics are all four.
Speaking of over the top, crazy, didn't i mention I wore the veil of Sasha after the program? Bakit si Sasha mukhang Mama Mary, ako parang nagbebenta lang ng dibidi!
...but you know I'm still up to no good. Ika nga ng supportive Mom ko: "Tigilan mo nga kalokohan mo!"
Ok, ok, Sasha got her maamo looks from her grandmother (Jun's mom) and great grandmother who were also always told they looked like the blessed mother.

I'm sure they're all (Mommy Baby, Lola Guia and Mama Mary herself) looking down from heaven as proud as I am today.
Happy Birthday to the mother of all Mothers!
