Celebrating with gratitude

Today I join many in celebrating a dear friend and Ursuline Associate, Kathy Kiper. Kathy Jo as she is fondly called is a faithful and genuine presence in my life. She has a sincere and compassionate heart that extends to family, friends, community, and even strangers. I appreciate her laughter, her enthusiasm for life, especially good music, good food, a good game of bingo, and a Kentucky Wildcat game thriller. I have known Kathy since 1992 and my life is much richer as I have been enriched by her goodness, her support and faithful friendship.

On this celebration of her birth and life, I pray in gratitude for her goodness, her friendship, her genuine faith and service to all. May this year unfold with much grace and blessings for you, my friend.
