As Kim and I were celebrating my birthday two weeks ago, I asked her what she would like to do to celebrate her upcoming birthday on February 23rd.
She thought for a bit and said that ideally what she would wish I would do would be for me to organize a surprise birthday party for her. Which, of course, we cannot do because of the coronavirus pandemic! She wanted something big because this is her 50th birthday.
And so, I’ve decided that the closest thing to a surprise birthday that we can do is to have a SURPRISE TOP SECRET BIRTHDAY CARD SHOWER for her!
Kim LOVES cards, and I hope to present her with a box full on Sunday, February 21, 2021, two days before her actual birthday. Please, no other gifts are needed … but a note from you will mean so much to her.
If you have been a part of the walk to Emmaus movement with Kim or I, you know how meaningful and even life-changing a personal letter can be. Or those notes people would write in your high school yearbook.
If you would like to add a note to your card, sharing a memory from the past, reminding her of something you did together, telling her how her faith has blessed you, what she has meant to you or blessed you, this would make your card even more of a great blessing.
As we age, we can sometimes forget many of the little things we share with friends that mean so much and are so uplifting. If you’d like to help me wish Kim a happy birthday, you can mail your note or card to:
Kinmundy United Methodist Church or Kinmundy UMC
PO Box 158
Kinmundy, IL 62854
Please help spread to word to friends you have in common with Kim. To keep it secret … please don’t post on Facebook – Kim and I share the same page.
But you can contact me or forward it to others via email. Or use Facebook Messenger to spread the word, as she doesn’t use it at all. Thank you for helping!
