Kipp Nelson,

Your timing is always perfect. Or really, it God's timing. But you get the idea.

Kipp, meeting you is one of the greatest gifts I have ever received in my lifetime. Your wisdom continually astounds me. The way you encourage people is other worldly. Your kindness knows no bounds. Your 'HIII TIMMMMYYYYY' each time I call is fabulous. And your ability to bring every conversation back to Jesus is beautiful.

Yesterday was a sad day for me. But low-and-behold, a call from you was all it took to turn it around.

You seem to always have the ideal balance of empathy and encouragement. You listen well and are sincere in your response. Knowing you is a gift.

Thank you for your friendship.

Thank you for seeing me and loving me through many highs and lows this past year and STILL managing to help me realize how blessed I am.

Thank you for being consistent. That's something I've needed more than anything lately.

Thank you for challenging my preconceived notions about myself. You've helped me to see myself through a more positive, self loving light.

Thank you for simply caring about what happens to me.

I love ya, Kipp.
