I've known Jessica since she was five years old. This young woman of faith is beautiful inside and out. It was nice to spend some time with her joking about her parents and her older brothers and then she told me something that was the sweetest thing.
You see, Pella schools keep a few pieces of schoolwork each year from kindergarten until the students' senior year. Then at the beginning of their senior year they give this memory box to the student. It is basically their academic life in a box. Well, Jessica had gone through hers recently and when she was in elementary school, she answered some simple questions about her life. One of the questions was…."Who is the most exciting person in your life? And she wrote down my name!??! MY name! Wha!??! When she told me that, I about started bawling… I was just so thrilled to be a part of that little academic box of memories. Super duper sweet. And now she's all grown up! Wow!
