In Memory of Kay Kim's Blogs

Horrible, Rotten, Good For Nothin’ Day


–After a horrible, rotten, good for nothin’ day at work &
missing my sister, Kay desperately—here are a few things that made my heart smile.

–An unexpected FABulous Funky Gaga  card from Susan in Australia /Elephant\’s Child

A card and heart  t-shirt from Sweden from Lady Fi & Oscar.  Are you kidding me ?  WOWwww!

–Placing colored rocks, gems,  and rose petals on Kay’s stone while I prayed,  “Help Me!  Help Me!”

–Receiving a letter and photo of Ed & his family…..Ed is the person who Kay donated her healthy lungs to.

–Baking Apple Crisp with My Mama today.

This is what Mr. Darling Liverpool bought me for my upcoming birthday!

Then I cranked up this song & danced wildly  & crazily all over the house!

    There are days, then there are days!

    Dancing wildly about the house always gets me going, loved your choice in music. Loved the letter and everything else that fixed the horrible and rotten day at work.

    Ah Kay, I think the universe knows when we need a hug. Don’t you?

    Tears as always when I come to visit. I love, love, love your gift from ladyfi and Oscar. I danced with you, I loved your presents from Mr Liverpool. And I was full of awe and wonder at the amazing letter from the gentleman whose life Kay saved.
    Hurting for you, hurting with you, and so grateful that there is so much love in your life.
    And HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Hugs, chocolate and love.

    Oh Kim, just wanted to check in with a virtual kiss and hug and hope that gets added to the things that will help you feel better after a horrible, rotten, good for nothing day.

    Is that 1st row I see at Madonna? Mr. Liverpool is a keeper indeed!

    I’m finding it hard to smile myself these days. Every time I start feeling better, I’m almost afraid to because I know more heartache and frustration is around the corner. And it starts all over again. But seeing your notes and things that make YOU smile, made me think about some of the things I happened upon these last few days. So I’ll go back and look at them once more. And it’ll give me some hope that things will go my way.
    Wow, you better get some pictures of Madonna in concert!! 1st row!?? That’s just fucking awesome!!

    So sorry to hear you had a bad day… but oh, what lovely timing with all the gifts! So glad the T shirt arrived safely – hope it fits! – Oscar sends lots of licks with his card!

    I recently went to see Lady Gaga with my daughter, so I’m sure a good dance with Madonna will lift the spirits for a short while.

    Lots of love from us!

    Loved the list that made your heart smile. But my favorite (so hard to pick, believe me!) was the letter from Ed. That’s just so beautiful, Kim, to give life to someone – Kay is an angel. I am sure she’s smiling reading this post.

    You better get photos of the concert, okay? I really admire Madonna and hope I’ll see her in concert some day! 😀 Happy birthday to you in advance for October 4 – Hugs!

    I want to visit Kay and touch that stone.

    You’re such a beautiful person. And I love the “quote” or message you add in each of your blog post email alert. I appreciate it.

    Love you! Vidya

    P.S.: Please post a recipe of the apple crisp 🙂

I hope you got yourself some good seats to see her on stage. She’s gotten so skinny and all but don’t mind me, I’m just hatin’ the playa and the game.

    Mr. Liverpool must love you very much. I love how he knows what you need and what you want to keep you sane and keep you in the real world. He grounds you and picks you up when you are down.

    The poem from the man who received Kay’s lungs is a precious gift to you even though he is the one who received the gift of life from Kay. You are blessed by many, Kim.

    And for your readers, don’t forget there is a fund raiser for DAIP on Sunday at 3:00 p.m. at Duluth East High School gym. It’s the Harlem Globetrotters traveling team against the DAIP team. It should be a fun event and for the best of causes- domestic abuse.

    Dear friend. My first Madonna concert ever was in PR and I went with my kid brother the year was 1992. Since then I have gone on every tour and this is the first time I ever miss her tour since then. She inspires me. Like her I try my darnest to assault peeps on my blog with images, words and music. When she sings please think of me and please scream like never before because I usually comeback with no voice. Enjoy it and dance…
