Happy Birthday Chrissi......





Tomorrow is this beautiful ladies birthday. What can I say? She has given me one of the most selfless and incredible gifts in the world. A wonderful grandson. That little boy is one of the sweetest boys I have ever known, and I know I owe it all to Chrissi. He is loving, caring and very thoughtful, as is his mommy. When people ask about Jack, I can't say enough about what a wonderful job Chrissi is doing raising such an incredible boy. I know he is being raised with values, love, tenderness and consideration as to what kind of man she expects him to be. One of worth. A one in a million. During Thanksgiving I was able to tell Chrissi what a good job she is doing. I know it isn't easy being a mom, especially in these economically difficult times. She has a wonderful support system at home with Kevin and I have never once worried about Jack or how he is being taken care of. I know Chrissi puts herself last. I have seen it first hand. Jack is always taken care of first. So Chrissi, I wish I were there so I could steal Jack away tomorrow on your birthday so you could have a day of complete Chrissi with no other distractions, but I can't be there tomorrow. Please know, you are in my thoughts everyday, you are in my heart with nothing but love and admiration. Thank you for being you and I am so blessed that you are a part of my life, now and forever. You have given me my first grandchild and for that I feel truly honored. I do understand that things could be much different than they are, and I know that you have given to us the greatest gift of all, a part in our grandson's life, no strings attached. You are a beautiful woman, inside and out, and for that I will always love you and honor you. Thank you so much and have a wonderful birthday tomorrow.
