Happy #28 Jessica

So maybe you don’t want everyone in the world to know that you are 28 years old. Sorry but that is what mothers do. When I was your age, turning 28, I had this wonderful little almost three-month old daughter, you. Dad and I went out for supper while your aunt Kathy took care of you. You always gave her a hard time. When we got home, we had a phone call from Noreen that Melissa had been born. That is what it was like when I was 28.

You, instead of being an unemployed mother of a baby girl, you are a successful, intelligent, beautiful young woman. And as anyone reading this can tell, I am not one bit prejudice.

I don’t have much to say to you today except that I hope all of your birthdays are wonderful and that there are lots and lots of them, and that we can find some way to spend them together. I can’t believe that I missed your golden birthday four years ago, nothing could have been that important. Anyway, yesterday was fun, even if only for a brief time. Hope you still find time for us as you get more and more of a big shot in that company. Ha!!

I am posting a few pictures of some pictures. They are not the best quality, but they have personality. This is your life, Jess.

You are 19 possing with then Senator O' Bama.

Well, not much else to say. I have a few more pictures to record what today was like. It was warmer than yesterday, but the sky looked like rain. I saw Grandma’s bunny sitting out by the lilacs. Maybe she was here hanging around to see how your day was going. She always loved hearing from you, and in one of her last letters, she bragged about how you were doing. Have a great day, and if it helps, you aren’t technically another day older until 6:15 p.m. HAHAHAHA!!

The snow is melting off the upper deck because the sun is rather warm.

    Happy 28th to Jessica as well! You are rich indeed, Lucinda. (P.S. I have a 28 year old as well.)

    You made me tear up at work. Thanks for the birthday wishes. I am so glad you had fun at lunch yesterday :). I did too. Maybe I will write about today, maybe I won’t. I haven’t decided. Hope you are staying warm and this blizzard misses you.

      It is nice so far, and Dad and I are having a sort of fun together day. Mostly getting on each other’s nerves. Not as much reward today as 28 years ago, but physically a much easier day. HA!
