I started out this year writing a blog for each member of our families birthdays. However, last week I missed writing a blog for our daughter-in-law Jennifer! I didn’t mean to not recognize her day, I simply forgot. Can I blame it on old age?
Jennifer is a beautiful person. She is a wonderful wife and mother. But to me, she is so much more. She is a daughter and a friend. We live several hundred miles away so we don’t see each other as often as I’d like, but we talk on the phone a lot! We laugh a lot and share stories about the grand kids.
Our son met Jennifer on Spring Break many years ago. They hit it off right away. Their relationship was a long distance one for awhile, but it wasn’t long before she moved here from Ohio so they could be together. We got very close while she lived here.
Unfortunately for me and my husband, jobs sent them both back to Ohio. Theirs is a love story I truly admire. Although they live so far away, they always keep their family ties with us close.
They have a tradition with their kids each night before bed to show them pictures of their New Jersey family so that they don’t forget us between visits. It makes us feel special. Jennifer loves family and it shows in all she does.
As I have said many times before, we are so blessed with two wonderful sons and two beautiful “daughters.”
Family is Gods greatest gift and we have been blessed with a great one.
You are very special to us Jennifer! Sorry I’m late with this blog, but always know I love you with all my heart.
