MOMMA MIA, MEA CULPA

People ask me all the time WHY? did I choose? that name as my blog title

So, If ya don’t know? here ya go…

MOMMA:
When my son was little, he never called me mom, or mommy. He always called me “momma”

MIA:
When I was little I called my grandmother Manga (who passed away this last mothers day of althzhiemers) So, since I made up a name for her, she made up a nickname for me, Mia. As I grew into a teenager I was always Missing In Action, so MIA was / sometimes even now is / still applicable.

MEA CULPA:
Is Latin for: “my fault” or “my own fault”. In order to emphasize the message, the adjective “maxima” may be inserted, resulting in “mea maxima culpa,” which would translate as “my most [grievous] fault.”

The “mea culpa,” as the Confiteor has come to be known popularly, is not simply a confession of sins, but rather an admission of one’s flawed nature and the willingness to make amends for it.

…and as you have all READ, I have said, and done many things that get me into situations that are my own damn fault, and this BLOG is an admission of my flawed nature…

So, there you have it. Know you now.

*Now, yesterday, I had a GREAT time with my family, for my brother’s 30th birthday. I have a ton of picures and video to “work with” so….I will be building a new movie in Adam’s honor. Hope to have it finished by the end of the week!*

    I knew what “mea culpa” as “mi culpa” is spanish for my fault. So you are missin in action sometimes eh? HA! I’m missing in action all the time especially when I was younger. My brother used to play the “mission impossible”song whenevr my father asked for me, little that he knew I was always outside playing. Ah the memories of always getting in trouble. If I were to define myself in latin it would be “aegresco frabricato maximus”
