"Happy Birthday Jenna"
God has blessed our family with our wonderful daughter-in-law, Jenna. Today is her birthday and I wanted to honor her by saying thank you Jenna for who you are and for all you have done for Bryan, Hudson and our family. Bryan and Jenna started liking each other when she was in the 8th grade and he was in the 10th. At that time, things didn't work out for them but Jenna always prayed for Bryan and wanted God's blessings over his life, even when they were dating other people. It wasn't until they were older, Bryan 21 and Jenna was 20 that the Lord brought their paths together again. Jenna had always shared with Bryan how she had been praying for him for all the years apart but it wasn't until one night when she opened up her prayer journal to show him that she really had been praying for him. How blessed our family is to have a Jenna in our lives. She is a wonderful daughter-in-law and a great wife for Bryan and an amazing mommy to Hudson. It is kind of ironic they ended up together since Bryan always seemed to have spent a lot of time at the nurses office during school and now he is married to a nurse.
I am thankful that God has been so faithful, blessing our children with amazing spouses. I can tell you, it is worth fighting and praying over your children for their future mates. The most popular thing today seems to let your kids make mistakes and not take a stand for their futures, but God allows us a small window period to raise our kids and teach them morals and values and you don't have to always be there friends while they are growing up. Bryan had someone in his life for 2 years that he thought was the right person for him, but as his mom, I knew she was not what I had prayed for so many years for the wife of my son. I am thankful to say, Jenna is an answer to my prayers for all those years.

Thank you Jenna for the blessing you are to our family. We love you and wish you a very Happy Birthday!!!
