After 32 hours of labor and c-section Ray and I welcomed our first born Jessica Rae Childress into the world. It's amazing how fast you can fall in love with someone. Jessica was her daddy's eyes from that first moment. Everything was all about her. He was so proud of his little girl. He would be just as proud if he could see her today. Happy 23'rd Birthday sweet Jessica!
Today is a bitter sweet day. Jessica is excited her team the Patriots are in the Supper Bowl and it's her birthday. I can tell she really misses her Daddy a lot today. They were football buddies. I can see Ray right now sitting in his chair with the phone in his hand and a football pool in his lap. Jessica is cheering quietly where if he were hear it would be a lot louder.
I wanted to thank you all for reading my last long post. You will never know how much your comments and stories meant to me. You all are so wonderful. I know I was lucky to have been so blessed with the love of my life and two beautiful girls. I am very grateful for the time I had with Ray but I sure do miss him. I say this a lot because as my post said Time Waits For No One enjoy every second of your life and family!
