Jesyca A little girl full of life with so much love for her papa. It was love at first sight when papa laid eyes on her at her birth. He was her nanny; papa never laid her down but cradled her in his arms until it was time to leave. He was mama until she was two. When he would correct her, he'd say, "No, "Papa." She was unbending and would repeat by saying, "No," Mama." He taught her to ride her first tricycle, taught her to throw her first ball, he helped her with homework when she started school. Once in a while she'd call and asked, "Papa would you come to school today and have lunch with me." and of course Papa couldn't never say no to his little girl. Her first baseball game she played on, was a t-ball team of all boys and one girl. Of course, she outshined them all and took home the winning game ball. She has been playing in the All–Star Softball Team. Now eight years old, coaches are watching her to get her on their team. By Eve Roper 9-10-2014

What a sweet way of spelling Jeysca for such a sweet, loving child in such a darling, cute poem. Where was mama bear all this time? Jim Horn

Hello James, Thank you for your comment, your poem was on the list of new poems, I try to read a few every day. My daughter in –law wanted the name differently. My husband is retired Navy man + a few other job descriptions. So he had time to help my son out with Jesyca my granddaughter. My son was injured while in the Navy with traumatic brain injury so while my daughter in-law worked my husband would spend the day with both my son and granddaughter to keep an eye on both of them. Mama bear had her own issues, one I worked and two I had a tumor growing on the left side of my brain that was removed in 2005 and left me with a few problems and one was not being able to be around noise so eventually I had to quit my jobs also. I have 3 sons no daughters so Jsyca is a joy. Thank you so my for asking. :) Eve

Thank you so much, I read your work earlier and I thought it was pretty good. I read about the story of your husband. My husband spent 20 years in the Navy and a son that came out of the Navy with traumatic brain injury so I can understand a little of what you wrote. love eve
