I have said I am coming home Thursday ...and more on the reason later...it has cracked me up, because 2 of you readers..assumed I am coming to make a huge announcement about being preggers! That is unbelievable..but not as unbelievable as the real reason I am coming! My baby cousing Jessica is graduating! It amazes me that she is even A.) able to walk....B.) can talk...and C.) READY TO GRADUATE!!!!! It seems like yesterday...we were helping her parents paint her room and prepare for her to come home from the hospital! So..I have a blog..I wrote on her birthday...and wanted to share it today...



Well, I just figured tomorrow 17 years ago deserves a blog. I will never forget my first cousin was born. I was 9 years old and so excited to have my first baby cousin on my daddy's side. I remember decorating at her house and waiting on her to come home from the hospital. She was such a beautiful child..dark hair and dark eyes...and now she is just as beautiful as a 17 year old. I still can't believe she is driving, much less a senior. I used to pretend she was my little sister, and would stroll her up and down Forrest Ave. trying to make her call me "Sissy"...obviously that never caught on! LOL..I only abandoned her one time in her life when she blew a gigantic bubble out of her nose...it scared me..and blamed a poot on her...I felt bad and told on myself b/c I had blamed a helpless baby. Well, I said all of this to say the following...Jessica has grown into a beautiful, self-sufficient young lady who loves her God with all of her heart! She has made me so proud and I know she has her parents too. She is truly a committed young lady and will go far in this life. She stood as a bridesmaid at my wedding and was there at the birth of Brylee....two important times in my life..and I hope I can be there for her one day...(one long day after graduation...college...marriage...and about the age of 35) LOL ...Her birthday is tomorrow and boy, I feel old!!! HA..I love you Jessica and I am so proud of the young lady you have become!!!!



So..now she will go into the big world and become her own person..and honestly..I am so excited to see what and who she becomes and how she furthers His Kindgom through her life...b/c I know He has big things in store for her...and she has wonderful parents who have taught her how to listen to Him and follow His plan! I love you Jecca!!! And I am overly excited for you...and like I said on your comments..don't be surprised if we get the bullhorns and the cowbells out! JK

That was great! But please don't make me cry at Graduation! She is so excited, and I have cried off and on since the first day of school!

Be careful coming in!

Love,
Aunt A
