What a difference a year can make!!!

This time last year I was preparing (mentally and physically) to have surgery on my eye.

I thank the Lord each day for bringing me through that whole chapter of my life.   (It was only a chapter because the story is just getting to the good part 😊)

Last year, there were so many unknowns and so many questions.  I can’t even put into words everything that was running through my mind at the time.   At that point, I really hadn’t told anyone, besides my family what was going on because I didn’t know what to even tell them.   Thinking back on it now, still brings tears to my eyes.

People ask me all the time; How do you have the energy to do everything you do?  Why are you so involved in the community?  Why are certain things so important to you?   And I respond the same way every time – “When you have an eye-opening experience, you learn to be very thankful and realize that life is short so I plan to enjoy every minute.”

Stay Tuned – I promise the story is only going to get better.



  1. I met you through your community involvement, and I see a renewal in your energy and commitment. Your challenges seem to bring out the best in you and your family, friends, and community benefit. Thanks Kim!
