25 years ago, a little girl was given a special sweat shirt.  She wore it with pride, and always thought of her Dad and stepmom (who bought it for her) when she put it on.

And, then, when that little girl grew out of it, she put it in a box, hoping someone might wear it and love it again someday, just as much as she used to.

It said,

"Somebody

in New Jersey

loves

ME."

Many years later, that little girl who had grown out of her special sweat shirt got her wish: 
four little young 'ens who also love that shirt--and some times, even fight over it.

And we love those folks in New Jersey just as much as ever.



I think that shirt means more to me now than it ever could have back then.
