From the moment I blessed this world I have been a thorn in your side. Born at just over 4 lbs I required round the clock feedings which is no easy task for a baby so small ( and I know how much you love your sleep). Then, of course there was the never ending clinging and don’t forget the biting. I am pretty sure there are family members who still have scars from little baby Jessie teeth. Yet over the years we have become the best of friends. I would choose a BBQ at home with your over almost anything else. We didn’t always get along and I didn’t always see things your way, but you knew that with time I wouldn’t always hate you. Now as your grandchildren are approaching their teenage years I know that its ok to be the bad guy, because this too is just a phase. I am so glad that I grew up with such a strong woman role model in my life and more than that I am glad that you have chose to spend the last three years with us and be that role model for the crazies. Happy Birthday Mom. We couldn’t survive without you.
