This rather dashing young man is my nephew, Jacob, AKA Jake to us. On this day 24 years ago we were blessed with his presence in our world. His big brother and big sister sat in the waiting room with me, his Mamaw Mac and his Aunt Sue and waited for him to arrive. When he was finally wheeled out, they were so excited, wanting to crawl up into the bed with Momma and the new baby. Daddy held them up and they 'oooohhhhed' and 'awwwwed' and gave him kisses. Momma and I cried!
Jacob is such a free spirit on the one hand and yet so cautious on the other. I would say he is an extremely well balanced individual. He has dreams of being a pilot and I pray every day he is able to fulfill that dream. Some discounted airline tickets would be nice for old Aunt Di!!!! ;) He is currently working full time and going to school four days a week. He has a busy life, but he likes it that way.
Now, this OUR Jake!!! He has such a great sense of humor and keeps us laughing all the time! He can make the dullest day bright or the saddest hour happy. He would be a real catch for some young woman out there....hint, hint!!!!
