Happy Birthday Grandma J

It is hard to find the words to express the essence of this incredible woman! I believe most of you who know me also know Joyce. I believe you would each agree with me that she is someone pretty special. She is very thoughtful and sincere! She is accepting and makes me feel comfortable! The first time I meet her was on New Years Eve, 2004. She welcomed Zander and I into her cabin and treated us just like we had known each other for ages!! As a grandma she is perfect in every way. The kids look forward to spending time with Grandma J. She goes out of her way to make sure we are all happy. She even has a magic table!! I always know I can count on her to help out.... with anything! She takes the kids to school, supports each of her grandkids with their various interests, and is the best cook on this planet. You will even see her sledding down a steep, snowy hill in the winter or getting in her swim suit and boogie board with rest of us. I just love to have her with us because she makes everything so much fun!! She is also a great friend. She listens, laughs, cries, and comforts. She inspires me to want to be a good person. I often find myself saying, "I want to be like Joyce when I grow up!" She is beautiful and full of life! She is just one of those people who will forever leave her footprints in my life. I love her!

Happy Birthday Grandma J! Thank you for everything!!!
