Kimberly Stuff

17 years ago my mom finally gave birth to a little girl. After dealing with 2 brothers I'm sure I was ecstatic to have a little sister (I don't really remember though- I was 6.) I love this girl like a sister (which is convenient) and I'm so lucky to have her in my life! Here's a few things I love about this girl.

~Happy 17th Birthday Kimberly~

1- She makes me laugh all the time. She has this stupid little voice that she sings in. One time she was sitting at the computer oblivious to the world and she starts singing "Jesus said love everyone, he gave his love to (pause) just about everyone". Only those of you who have heard this voice can truly appreciate the funny-ness of this.

2- She is so independent. I really admire that about her. She's the relay for life chairman for her area and flew to Phoenix for a week convention all by herself. She didn't know one person there till she went and she was perfectly fine with that. I could never do that. I'm too shy. But she is so confident when it comes to things like that.

3- She makes me feel important. When I go home to visit she cancels plans with her friends so she can hang out with me.

4- She's so smart! She scored a 26 on her first attempt at the ACT (so did I- those Wilkerson girls are smart!). She's planning on applying to Penn State and wants to be a Pediatric Oncologist when she's older. How awesome is that?

5- She truly is one of my best friends. We have so much fun when we are together. We can talk about anything and I know no matter what she's always on my side. We can fight and argue and I still know she loves me.

Thanks for being born Kimberly and for being the bratty 6 year old that shared my room and left scars on my body from scratching me so hard/often and making me listen to your constant screaming and always getting your way because you knew just how to manipulate Dad into giving you everything you wanted. Thanks for being that girl so I could appreciate the great girl that you are today! I love ya!

I only have one sister too. I think it's more special when there are only two of you.
