Happy Birthday to my favorite actress Jorja Fox

  Happy 39'th Birthday Jorja !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jorja, you are without a doubt the most amazing actress on TV today, The way that you do a scene never fails to impress me , the scene that affected me the most was from Nesting Dolls when you were crying and telling Grissom about how your mother shot your father in self defense and how he was abusive to you as a child.I was wiping away tears of my own ,  it brought back so many bad memories and I cried all night after that episode was over, when I first started watching CSI I was struck by how similar your character Sara Sidle was to me.I saw so much of me in Sara it blew my mind.

The thing that made me admire your character Sara Sidle the most on CSI is that even if you have been to hell and back growing up you can still prevail and become an inspiration to others.There were times in my life growing up when I was miserable beyond words,when I was a freshman in high school  I was at a very low point in my life and I thought about suicide, , I was just ready to give up on life and did'nt want to deal with the pain anymore or the emptiness that lay inside my soul.I sought profesional help and with the help of friends and some family I fought my way out out of the black hole but it was'nt easy.

One thing that I really admire about Jorja is that her beauty is more of a girl next door type then a Hollywood starlet, she seems approachable and not the least bit stuck up or arrogant.She has a very likable  quality to her that is rare among celebrities nowadays, I grew up feeling ugly and I never thought I could accept myself for who I was but Jorja taught me that you do'nt always have to be perfect looking to be on TV, Jorja looks like a real woman and she gave me the strength to accept myself and try to forget about all the negative coments about myself my dad had fed me as a child.All the hate and mean comments from my dad had done some serious damage to my self -worth and brick by brick I was able to repair some of the wall that had been destroyed inside of me.If I am ever lucky enough to meet Jorja I will tell her how much she means to me and how she has changed my life for the better.

Some of you might be puzzled as to why I admire Jorja so much but I can only say you would have to have walked a mile in my shoes as a kid with a verbally abusive and sometimes physically abusive dad to truly know and understand what it was like. I never ever thought that I would feel good about myself and be able to find acceptance within me. I still have days where I feel like a nothing.I truly hope that none of you have been in that dark place before because it was not fun.

Jorja I hope I can meet you someday and tell you what an inspiration you are to me and so many others.When I sent you that necklace that time and you were wearing it on CSI that was one of the coolest things that ever happened to me.So I wish you a wonderful birthday tommorow and I think you are just an amazing human being as well as an actress who I admire a great deal.And another thing if Grissom ever wants to marry you on CSI you had better not turn him down !!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Birthday Jorja, I hope you have the most amazing birthday ever, I love you Jorja , you will always be my #1 favorite actress ever !!!!!!!!! Your favorite CSI fan Lisa

What a wonderful tribute to her and a Big Happr Birthday shout out to her as well! I do agree...she isn't one of those fancy type Hollywood kind of girls and I like that too. I'm very sorry that you too had to grow up with an abusive father...it does suck.

What a powerful tribute to Jorja. It's a shame she will probably never get to read your words cause I know it would move her as it has me. Almost had me in tears here. Hugs, Emmi

Wow I hope one day she hears your words Lisa because honestly I think it will mean a lot to her to see that she impacted someones life that way.
I'm sorry that you had to go through all that from your dad. You're an awesome person don't ever let anybody tell you different. One of the sweetest I know in Jland you always have a kind word for everyone.
Take care, Chrissie

Happy birthday Jorja.  Lisa, I’m glad you were able to find a hero you could aspire to be like.  Despite having a bad childhood and disagreeable parental guidance you yourself were able to become quite the remarkable person.  It’s easy to look into the past and loose yourself in the darkness that it entails, but despite the looming darkness that encompasses your past you were able to rise above it and smile.  The inspiration and hero you find in Jorja you need only to look at mirror to find.  You’re a wonderful person and I’m sure the future holds wonderful things for you.
Love, Sebastian

It makes perfect sense to me that you identify with Sara. I am also very glad that you lived through your childhood. I think I like the quality of stillness Sara has. I don't know iofJoprja has the same characteristic, or if it is great acting, but I admire it. Hugs, margo
