Happy Birthday, Kelly!

I've recently written about Kelly's and my "meet cute" -- and how our friendship started and grew from that day. (Check it out here.) Today, in honor of my sweet friend's birthday, I thought I'd do something very English teachery: make an acrostic poem out of the letters of her name.

K is for Kelly, her name, which I love because when I was growing up, I thought Kelly was an awesome name, right up there with Stacy and Crystal. How I wished I could have had one of those rad 80's names for myself. Kelly's name also means vibrant and lively, which does indeed describe her! (See how I sneaked two more descriptions in? Her name is only five letters long! That's not much to work with!)

E is for Encouraging. Kelly is an incredibly encouraging person, one of those "always-on-your-side" people. I love that. I only have to hint that I've received some negative comment or criticism, and she's there defending me!

L is for Loving. Kelly loves, and loves deeply. She also loves sacrificially, which is the highest form of love, wouldn't you say? I know that all I'd have to do is ask her to be somewhere for me, and she would rearrange her life and make it work.

L is for Learner. This girl epitomizes the phrase "life-long learner"! When she takes an interest in something, she does not rest until she knows it well. This makes her great in a number of things, but lately, I'm most impressed with her cooking. We've had some amazing meals a la Kelly!

Y is for Youthful. She may be another year older, but I swear she doesn't age. Where are the wrinkles?  Youthful also describes her passionate love for life.

May this day and this year be full of God's wonderful blessings, Kelly!!!
