Every life has its defining moments--events and circumstances that change you forever. I've had my share, but nothing--nothing--has affected the person I am, the life I've led, and the way I love more than this words-cannot-describe daughter of mine.
She is feisty, tenderhearted, confident, and smart. When she was 4, her nursery school teacher chuckled when she told me she would be a handful to keep up with, and she is. She is also accepting of all people, quick to size up any situation, witty and funny in ways that have you rolling on the floor, and incredibly competent. I trust her with my life. I would do just about anything for her.
With Mike and Ryan now woven tightly into the tapestry that is our family--and surrounded by fantastic friends (yes, Janna, I mean you), Jess' life is rich and colorful and vibrant and honest. She will contribute to this world.
I love her....
HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY TO MY VERY FAVORITE DAUGHTER
Happy Birthday, Mommy. I'm so glad I got you.......Love, Ryan
