today is my "cousin" kim's 30th birthday. kim is a smart lady, she has always impressed me with her intelligence wit and humor. of all my friends, she has the most religious presence in her life yet she represents this part of herself in the way that is generous, non-judgmental and enviable. i wish all christians were just like her.
her friendship has been a wonderful example to me of how two people who have so many superficial differences can have so much in common where it matters.
so happy 30th kim. hope your day is full of red sox, karaoke and jon stewart.
