In fact, all my kids have been a little bit odd - I wonder when I am going to have one that takes after me? :) The funny thing is, a lot of the things Staley says reminds me so much of myself! Pretty funny.
Staley's picture of "his cow"
I know I just wrote a couple of days ago and I think I am going to try to make this as short and sweet as possible.
I am done. I am so finished feeling sorry for myself. Easier said than done I know, but I am ready to find the "new me," the "new mom, the new wife, the new daughter, friend, cousin, sister....the new Kim." And I keep holding myself back. I look at my life and I am so grateful for every single thing and person in it. Honestly, I love my life so much and I have been given and blessed with SO much. It is time for me to start showing it. No more poor Kim, no more feeling sorry for myself, no more, well- just no more. Kamberlie loved absolutely every single thing that life had to offer her. I am sure that she would want nothing less for me. It is time to live and love the path I have been given. Will I have bad days ahead? Absolutely, but I think- no I know- I can go about them differently. I am not saying that I am done talking about or sharing memories of my baby girl, not at all. Everywhere I look there is someone hurting, someone needing and someone who is really just in need of someone to be there for them. I have been there. I was thrown right into it, and although I cannot relate to others exact circumstances... I can relate to their feelings, and to their hurt. I need to be there for other people, just like so many people have been there for me.
I love my family more than anything else in this whole world.
It is time to really show them. I am ready to move forward...
