Happy Birthday to my smokin' hot wife, friend and sweetheart. Jesika is a tremendous blessing in all of our lives...but I feel especially blessed to have her as my eternal companion and the mother of my children! An experience she had at the pool the other day sums up how I feel on a daily basis. I don't recall the specifics of the story as Jesika related it to me, but basically it went something like this. After an hour or so at the pool, a complete stranger approached Jesika and struck up a conversation. She was a woman from St. Petersburg, Russia. She told Jesika that she had to talk to her because she was just so bright...like a light in the midst of a sea of people. That is how I feel every single day! No matter what challenges or frustrations I have in a day...at the end I come home to radiant light! Jesika reflects our Savior's love and His light as much as anyone I have ever known! What a blessing for Gabe and Bree to have that constant influence in their lives! What a blessing for me to have her by my side through life's ups and downs...and even eternally! What a blessing for all of us to have her as a friend, sister, daughter, mother or wife! May we all try to personify Jesus Christ more like our beloved Jesika Jean!!!
Happy Birthday, Jesika! I love you!
