HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY KIM!Ashley, myself, and Kim lunching at Olive Garden back in July.
Monday was Kim's birthday! I was only on line a bit and didn't visit her daughter's blog at all until today. I knew Kim's birthday was near but since it isn't on my trusty calendar (well, it's on there now!) I totally missed it. So here, on line, in front of all 10 of my blog readers, let me apologize for overlooking such a special day. A day that someone so awesome was brought into this world.
Kim is full of energy and zip. She always has plans and an agenda. She is one of the most godly wives I know of and has been a large influence on me. She so deserves some special attention. I'll get to see her at church in a bit, at which time I will give her a special, although belated, card and gift.
I met Kim years ago when we both lived in Cambridge, Ohio. My dad was Kim's pastor! Kim was about 12 years old when we first met. She quickly became my sister, Rita's, best friend. We moved away a few years later. When Rita and Clint married, Kim was a bridesmaid in the wedding in Florida. She met her hubby Mike at the rehearsal dinner. Mike was the assistant manager of the restaurant. They really hit it off!
After the wedding, we talked her parents into letting her stay with my family in Florida for an extra week or so. She and Mike were able to get to know each other better and were married a couple of years later. They now have three beautiful daughters and live right here in the Tampa Bay area. We attend the same church now and have so much in common. I think I have stolen her from Rita! They were always so close, being that they were closer in age, but now that Kim and I are both "older", we have grown so close.
I love you Kim and hope your dinner out with your hubby was extra special!
