Wishing a very happy 22nd birthday to my beautiful daughter, JESSICA! Mama loves you more than I can ever express, Babe. It doesn't seem possible that it's been 22 years since you were born..........
............And 5 months later you experienced your first Easter, pictured here with your Great Grandpa, Horner Davis.
Here you are at 8 months on June 28, 1988, enjoying frosting from your Grandma Lue's birthday cake. Cake's not really good unless you get it all over you. In your opinion, anyway. ;-)
This is one of my all time favorite baby pictures of you. I wish it had scanned a little sharper and brighter.
Can you see Emmy in your face? Because I see a lot of you in her and vice versa, especially as Emmy gets bigger.
I can really see hints of Emmy in these two pics taken when you were 2 years and 10 months old. Emmy is almost 2 years and 6 months, so not much difference in your age in these pics and Emmy's age at the present time.
Lots of resemblance between Jessica and Emmy here, I think.
Fast forward a few years, and here you are with your cousin Devin at almost 4 years old.
My, how the time flies!
I blinked it seems, and here you are with your cousin Jon at around 12 years old, I think.
Another blink and you were graduating high school.
And just a little while later, on December 9, 2006, you became a beautiful bride and made me a mother in law to a handsome son in law. :-)
A short time after that you became a Mama, and the cycle of mother and daughter started all over again.
You bring me joy every day and I'm blessed and proud to call you Daughter. I love you so much, Jessica Rose Jennings.
I pray you enjoy a long, full, healthy and happy life, filled with God's love, joy, and blessings on your life.
I also want to wish my sisters Sue (left)................
and Ducky (right) a very Happy Birthday today!
Yes, that's right ---- Jessica, Sue and Ducky all share the same birthday. Sue and Ducky were born on November 3rd, 2 years apart, and then Jessica came along some years later on November 3, 1987.
Happy birthday to my beloved sisters and daughter. :o)
And on a more serious note, if you're a praying person, please remember Lamar when you pray. If you don't pray, positive thoughts are most welcome as well. Lamar's eye is inflamed again and it's just as bad as it was when this all started with him back in June of this year.
Jessica had to rush him to his eye specialist in Memphis this morning, and the pressure in that eye is sky high again. We still don't know what caused the problem with his eye to begin with back in June, and they still don't have a diagnosis or any real treatment plan for him now.
At first they were going to do emergency surgery, but they decided against that. Then they discussed giving Lamar shots in that eye, but eventually they changed their minds about that too.
After doing some tests on Lamar they sent him home with 3 prescriptions for various eye drops and 2 for pills. One pill is an antiviral and the other is an oral form of prednisone. If he doesn't get worse before Tuesday of next week, he has to go back to Memphis to see the eye specialist again.
We are so weary of this illness, and especially all the doctor visits, medications and still having no diagnosis or real answers as to what's happening to cause this problem with his eye. Lamar already has permanent vision loss in that eye and this whole roller coaster ride seems never ending.
Please pray for guidance and wisdom as the doctors treat Lamar and for a correct diagnosis and treatment plan as soon as possible.
Thank you all for your prayers, dear family and friends. I know many of you will answer our plea for prayers for Lamar, and we appreciate them more than we can ever express.
If anything new develops I'll post an update to keep everyone informed, whether it be bad news, God forbid, or good news, please let it be, Lord.I pray you all have a blessed week full of love and joy and that God will rain down His blessings upon you all.
