To My Daughter, With Love

You are listening to 
"The Wind Beneath My Wings"
by Bette Midler (click hear to see lyrics)

This very special page was lovingly created
in honor of my daughter, 
Janice Nicole,
the wind beneath MY wings.

Never grow a wishbone, daughter, where your backbone ought to be.

About my Daughter

Janice has been working for the school board as a Behaviour Therapist for special needs children for 2 1/2 years.   She plans to one day have her own preschool center for children with special needs.  Janice's love for children mirrors in the eyes of those she cares for.

It will be gone before you know it.  The finger prints on the wall appear higher and higher.  Then suddenly they disappear.

A Shared Recipe

One of my favorite recipes, is one that my daughter shared with me.


For more great family recipes visit my Country Kitchen Site or the Country Kitchen Forum!

Cooking is like love.  It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.                                                         ~~HARRIET VAN HORNE

In Memory of:

I named my daughter after a very special little girl, 
born to my parents, their first and very precious child,
Janice Lynn 
March 1955 - April 1955

With all my heart and soul, 
I truly believe my sister and I
would have been such great friends.


What's In a Name?

Janice is from the name Jane, a female form of John.
Hebrew ~ meaning "Gift from God "

Baby Names and Meanings 
Boy Baby
Girl Baby

A rose by any other name is still a rose.

Her Interests

One of Janice's many passions is her collection of cows!   One Christmas, Santa left a package of  "Cow Seeds"  in her stocking, so she may grow her own herd!  When I found this special background, I knew I just had to have it to add to her collection!  I hope she enjoys it! She also loves to collect Disney Christmas ornaments and has a wonderful collection of Disney and Winnie the Pooh animated characters. 

Mickey Mouse Mania
Winnie The Pooh & Tigger, Too!

Janice is a bookworm, just like her mom!  Her favorite authors are:

Danielle Steele
Laverle Spencer

The following poem was printed on a wall plaque given to me by my daughter when she was 12 years old! 


A Recipe for a Very Dear

Take a cup of thoughtfulness
And add a  lot of love,
Blend with smiles as warming
As the sunshine from above,
Add a cheerful spirit
And, of course, a heart that sings
And also the ability
To laugh at little things,
Stir in lots of tenderness
And understanding, too
And there you have the recipe
For mothers dear as you.


Janice also loves to write poetry.  She has written many ~~ one of my favorites she wrote at the age of 14.  It holds a special place in my heart ~ and on my wall ~ Janice had the poem embroidered and framed for me several years ago!
