Nirvana Kimberly... Kimsy

Some people are special cause of what they say or what they do,
 but you are special to me because of  who you are in my life, 
and the way you care and treat others. 
Just by being you,  you've made all the difference...

 Kimsy was born in Puerto Rico in 1997.  She is 16 years old today and just like Reshma, I look at her and I don't know where the years have gone by.  Time is going by too fast. We last saw Kimsy in December of last year and seeing the beautiful young lady she is today made me realize that I am a very lucky aunt.  I have beautiful nieces who are both wonderful inside and from outside and who love me.

Kimmy grew up Bilingual.  Now she is also fluent in French and I think she has picked up some additional languages due to all the international travelling she has been doing.  

Kimsy is growing up in a circle that one only reads about in magazines, yet she is grounded, kindhearted and always there to help out.  To know Kimsy is to love her.  She is soft spoken and a fierce defender of her brother J.  She is my little celebrity jet-setter niece.  Just thinking of her and I smile.

I remember one year when visiting them in Puerto Rico, she insisted we go to the Care Bear Shop and get ourselves a care Bear.  She already had a huge collection, but just seeing her so excited made me get caught up in the moment.  So we both walked out of there with new care Bears and a big smile.  Today Brutus enjoys playing with my Care Bear:)

Thinking about her makes me long to see her, J and my sister.  All my nieces and nephews are SMART!, but there is something about the girls that take them to another level.  Kimsy is no exception.  She excells in everything.  If there is something that needs to be done, guess who is volunteering?  

Sometimes her mom has to plead with her to not volunteer to do everything.  So far not sure it is working.  This summer Kimsy will be doing a camp/study at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.  Boy time does go by fast.

lil' mysulf
Combined with her modelling, school, social and volunteer work it's a miracle she has time for much more. 

I love you Kimsy and I will always be here for anything you ever need.
I know there is nothing that if you decide to do you can't.
You are unique and special and the world is an open book.
Happy Birthday and we hope we can see you all soon.

There will always be people in your life  tell you U can't.  
Look them in the eyes and say WATCH me!
