And yes, that means that it is Kelly's Birthday. In 1977, a little girl named Kelly Lynn White was born to Jim and Kathy White. She was 7 lbs. 4 oz. and about 19 inches long. She was the first of four children born to them. Now, 32 years later, she is the wonderful mother of three children. I was lucky enough to first date her seven years ago, and have enjoyed the last six as her husband. She is such a wonderful wife and mother. She teaches me something new each and every day. I am so glad that I got to keep her for time and all eternity. I love you very much, Kelly! I hope you have a wonderful day!
