Sweet Kim

I watched out my window all day yesterday as nurses, techs, doctors--just about everybody came into Kim's room to say goodbye. What a sweet angel she is. She's endured so much. We've all learned so much from her and from her family. I feel so incredibly lucky that her parents spent a little bit of their day yesterday with me, sharing their thoughts about the situation and their feelings. I've thought a lot about the fact that she was ready to meet her Maker, and how I still feel so unprepared. How I wish I were more like her. She's taught me so much about forbearance, patience, and just humility. I'll miss her greatly.
