S: Jane: The First Fifty
FC: The First Fifty!
1: Born in 1961 to a handsome father and lovely mother, your destiny as a beautiful woman was sealed. Of course, we all have our "awkward" years...
2: By the time you graduated from Hopedale High, and moved on to Roger Williams College, your Mojo had been well established, and your awkward years clearly left behind.
3: You and Jim created beautiful babies, some of whom were nursed until they were ordering off the menu. | Some time at Katie Gibbs, led to temping, led to meeting the mean old boss, which led to working the Mojo, which led to..... well, you know what it led to.
4: A move to Wrentham, and it's time to school the children, establish jobs, churches, friendships, and entertain the neighborhood kids. And feed them, and bandage them, and make them breakfast. Through it all, you smiled. Almost as often as you made mac and cheese and pnut butter sandwiches.
5: As the children got older, there was a little time for play and dress up for Mommy.... | and even some church volunteering. Which, wasn't much fun. Or, was it?
6: Sadly, life dealt you a huge blow. Your beloved Jim joined the angels in Heaven just days after the Packers played in the Super Bowl. His love for you, his love for his children, and his passion for his work were the legacies he left behind. He is still missed by many, and always will be in our hearts.
7: Yet, you carried on, because, love and care for your children always came first. You showed them love, laughter, fun, and gave them the strength to move forward, despite the blow they had been dealt. And you found the power within yourself, to be an even stronger, more independent woman.
8: You carried on, sometimes with a heavy heart, but always with a heart filled with an appreciation, and joy for the good that life can offer.
9: The love of family and friends, not to mention your strong faith, held you up. And, there was Swiffer, who has become a bit of a best friend, a source of solace in tough times, and maybe just a bit TOO human.
12: You made new friends, and kept the old....wait a minute, they're ALL old now!
13: You truly know how to celebrate the joys of friendship! | You are blessed to have your friends, and they are blessed to have you! | And, the best is yet to be! May all your life celebrations be blessed with happiness and joy!
14: So, as you reach the milestone that is today, may the good fortune of friends, family, and the love of God, surround you with love, and joy and health! Congratulations!
15: Happy Birthday, Jane! May you feel loved and appreciated, and treasured! Because, you ARE!
16: Birthday Wishes
