Someone is 36 today.
She has always loved the water. I used to worry about her and water, especially when she was little. She wore a life jacket as part of her summer uniform when she was a little girl. One time I let her and her sister near a pool in Havre Montana without life jackets on. It was hot, they went swimming, the pool was fairly deep..there they were in the center of the pool..one would bob up and the other would bob down. Eventually they would have drown each other..but their Mother showed much bravery and jumped in fully clothed and saved them from each other.
I taught her to float..and to dog paddle. I spent hours at the kiddie pool. She took every swimming class she could take. She became a Life Guard and then a Swimming Instructor. She always had some part time Guard or Instructors job during High School and College.
She loves “her” time on the water. It helps to renew her watery spirit. Happy Birthday Jen:)
