A Special Granddaughter - Jessica.

A special blessing - Oldest granddaughter, Jessica

Today we make a return trip to Oklahoma City VA Hospital to get Mickey's right eye cataract surgery rechecked. A good report from the Dr. and just follow-up in about 3 weeks here at the VA clinic in Tulsa. 

Granddaughter Jessica, who heard we were making the trip, called last night and wanted to know if we could meet for lunch after we were finished.  Could we!!!!  Of course. Jessica, who is a Senior at Oklahoma University (OU) in Norman, OK, a suburb of OKC, is usually working or in class so this was a rare opportunity for us to meet up. 

We made arrangements to call her when Mickey was finished with his 10:30 appointment and she picked us up and we had the most delightful time and visit, and very yummy lunch, at Cheesecake Factory.  And yes, even with each of us going home with our "doggie bag" (because we couldn't even finish our meals) we somehow managed to split a slice of Blueberry White Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake 3 ways. Can't go to The Cheesecake Factory and not get cheesecake....right? 

We are so proud of Jessica who will be graduating in May with a Degree in Interior Design.  She and her mom, Jacque, are making a car trip to Detroit, the early part of December, for a final project she is doing. She will be re-designing an old mansion, that has changed hands several times over the years and has recently been sold, into three different sections:  children adoption, pet adoption, and an adoption office.  What a challenging project and great opportunity for her & Jacque to share time together.

Then the end of December she is going with a group of other OU Interior Design students to Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, to study their 
architecture first hand.  What great opportunities.

After our long, leisurely lunch and visit Jessica took us back to our car and we made the trip back to Coweta, arriving at 4:30. 

Thank you Jessica for turning a necessary trip into a delightful visit and day.  
We love you and are so very proud of YOU!!

I agree with the previous comments. She received good examples during her life and can now return it!
