Happy Birthday Jen!

Our youngest daughter is older today...she has been going backwards from 40 a few years now...I think 36 is her number this year.

She is the rock of our family, she has a can do attitude and will see things through when the rest of us throw up our hands in frustration.   She is a force to be reckoned with...you always want her on YOUR side for sure!

I irritate her some days.  I take photos of her taking photos.

This past year she made sure that her elderly not getting any younger parents got to go on vacation in Hawaii.  She made countless phone calls and organized the entire trip.  She saw us through a blizzard, cancelled flights and airport frustrations.   Several of us (me, Far Guy and Adam said maybe we should just go home)  She said "No giving up ... we are all going to Hawaii!!"  AND we did!

She was our constant companion at The University of Minnesota Clinic while her Dad had days and days of medical tests.  She will be there with us when he is transplanted.

We thank God for her everyday, we are truly blessed to have her for a daughter.
Happy Birthday  Jen!

  3. You are such fortunate parents. She didn't get that way by chance, though: her parents had a hand in her becoming such a force of nature. Happy birthday, Jen! :-)

  18. HaPpY, HaPpY Birthday Jen! I hope you have the happiest of days. I'm so glad you have a daughter close enough to help you with everything you and Far Guy are dealing with these days.
    You said on my blog that you've been to Elkhorn. My daughter's address is Omaha, but they technically live in Elkhorn and Piper goes to Elkhorn schools. Small world isn't it.
    Blessings,
    Betsy
