A Day That Will Live in Infamy

A Day That Will Live in Infamy
My baby, Jolie Renee, was born 37 years ago today.
Dear Jo,
You have turned out to be a wonderful woman and mother. I am so proud of you and I thank you so much for letting Mark and I share in Avery's life. You have always made her mind and taught her manners. You are responsible and a hard worker. I was married a lot of years before you were born, but you were definitely worth the wait. Speaking of waiting. I was in labor with you for 41 hours. You know how people say you forget the pain. Yow, right. I would go through it a thousand times over to bring you into this world. You are witty and so funny. I'm blessed to have you in my life and thank you for always being there for me. You'll always be my little Jo-Jo. Love, Mum.
