Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Jackson's Arrival, June 16, 2010
You are probably thinking right about now that I am numerically challenged and cannot count. Although I am challenged by many things in life, counting is not one of them...I count how many minutes are left until 5pm on almost a daily basis!
Let me fill you in on my numbers
One best friend is in a serious relationship
Two best friends are engaged
Four best friends are married
Three best friends now have babies! And may I say Elle, Hunter, and Jackson are the cutest babies ever..besides my niece of course!! (can't deny those Jexes have good genes!)
Seven best friends are about 7 times more blessings than I girl could ever ask for!!
So congratulations to Laura and Matt on the arrival of Jackson on 6-16-10. As soon as I heard Laura had him I jumped into the car and headed to Jackson to see Jackson. He is so teeny tiny. I guess I am not around babies enough to appreciate how small and perfect every little detail is from their tiny little fingernails to the legs the size of a single Twix. He is so cute and I have actually had the pleasure of meeting him on his birthday and a few weeks later. He looked a tad bigger but his legs were still the cutest little Twix bars I have ever seen. I am really looking forward to living in Jackson for the next 3 months so that I can get to know little peanut even better! Although I think he has already warmed up to Aunt Shay because the 2nd time I visited, he blew out his diaper right in front of me like I was part of the family!
