Happy Birthday to one extremely special friend. Kim, I literally cannot believe you are officially 21! I remember the very first day we met in October of 2007 and not a day goes by where I do not think of you. Although it has been two years to this very day since I saw you, and the wonderful Kelly Clarkson at the Wang, I still consider you one of my closest friends. I hope that your birthday brings back many things you once enjoyed but I also hope it brings you a new era of peace, happiness, and health. All in the hopes that this new year will bring us together again, I will think fondly until the day comes. Happy Birthday, again Kim. I love you to the moon and back!

It has been officially 6 years since I’ve met Kim. Since then, she and I have both felt terrible loss, and overwhelming challenges. While I left and went off to college, Kim struggled, but more and more I see how awesome she really is. Although life hasn’t been in her favor very often, she never ceases to be 100% optimistic and loving. The most wounded souls are the ones with the strongest capabilities. 

Even though I haven’t seen Kim since January of 2012, I can still call her a close friend, and I’m even prouder to call her one of my best friends.

I miss you so much, Kim! I hope I can see you soon<3
