We Climbed before the Klimb 4 Kim...
1997's Climb

                   I've had some dreams.  Maybe not as many as I'd like to have had, but, you know, I feel like any that I do have are a bonus. I'm sure Kimmy's busy up there - no surprise!  I've read somewhere that the dreams that stick with you, that do not fade, are visitations.  I like that idea.  I have six now, that are as clear as the night that I had them.  They are precious to me.
                   I love when people come up to me and tell me they had a Kimmy dream.  Especially when they can remember the details and vividly tell me about it.  Her niece, Niki, recently emailed me that she had a nice dream that Kim was in, and just the feeling of peacefulness that she experienced when she awoke.  Kim had that way...
                    Lupe and I talked tonight about angels.  She recently heard a program that said that when you wake up between 3-4 a.m., it is your angel checking in on you.  I like that idea, too.  And, I seem to be awake many nights between those exact hours.
                 Last night, in fact.  I had such a dream...and, I woke up at 303 (good band out of Boulder, Colorado, coincidentally), not sure what had woken me up - the dream still so real that I could touch it, feel it, believe it...and I walked the entire house searching...

                  Let me know if you've been dreaming...

                Got some great news tonight, when Mary Montes called to let me know that Jenny Rienstra had her baby, Nathan tonight!!  8lbs 9ozs 22 inches long.  Linebacker, or tight end?  Either way, we are so happy for her and her family!!  Tonio was so excited, when, we received word from Jenny this morning before 6 a.m. that her water had broken at 1:45 a.m. and she was in the hospital waiting for Nathan to arrive.  Congratulations!!
                Funny thing was, during her home visit last night, she felt that she was going to go the distance (9/9) and possibly beyond.  She said she felt great.  Maybe it was something in the fruit salad I made her.  Or the marinara sauce...?  Either way, we are glad she and her baby are doing great!
                The sweetest thing, while talking to Mary, I could hear Brinley making the cutest noises in the background!!

                The bambini and I just stepped out to say goodnight to Kimmy.  We thanked her for watching over us...and baby Brinley and Nathan...The clouds were phenomenal, swirling together in a tight circle around the Big Dipper...Thanks Kimmy.

  1. Brinley is so lucky to have Kim as a guardian angel watching over her. I know I've told you in the past but I do feel that my pregnancy had been watched over by Kim...

    Brinley looks forward to meeting you and the kids!
