(note the scripture, left bottom: "And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me."- Matthew 18:5)
When you go, and I know you will (you have from now through May 11th to see for yourself), just stand in that room for a little while and listen to the lovely things that people say as they enter the space. It will make you proud too!
Don't miss the special touches that Kim added to her room: photographs of her inspiration, crystal kisses on the bedside table, Gayma's tea set, scripture on a silver bracelet...and a painting, done by her mother, in the center of the double window surrounded by beautiful draperies over a luxurious daybed. I mention these things because they could have been replaced by much more elegant pieces of art and decorator extravagances, but she put her heart in her room as well as her talent. It wasn't until I got home that I noticed my name (and those of other family members) in not one, but several printed acknowledgment statements. I was humbled and touched at her generosity. A decoratored room with a heart and soul... It was obvious that that room had been prayed over.

Tom and the children were a big part of what happened in this beautiful room. As I said earlier those "photos of her inspiration," the children, supported in more ways than they know...and Tom, well, he is a hero. I've never known a man so supportive and helpful. Today, Kim ran out of the above printed cards for guests to take home (ones Tom helped create for Kim). Tom put the children in the car and drove the 30 minutes it took to deliver another box to the show house. This has been a team effort, as it has to be with a family that has three children, and they worked perfectly together.
In showing you some of these pictures, I hope I don't take away from the thrill of seeing the room for the first time for yourselves. Kim has put months of time and effort into this project, she has grown from it and would be honored to share it with the ones she loves.
Special Note to Kim: I wish you much success my darling daughter. I am so proud of you, your girl's room and the way you conduct yourself professionally, with genuine grace. -Mom
