When I Grow Up I Want To Be Kelly Shahan!

Who is Kelly Shahan, you ask?  Is she a movie star?  Is she an author?  A journalist?  Who is Kelly Shahan?

Kelly Shahan is simply the most beautiful, nicest person I know.  She has a Big Smile, and a kind word always.  She is always sunny and bright and you'd think she never has a care in the world. 

Is she outrageously rich, you ask?  Yes, she is outrageously rich, but not in money.  Kelly Shahan is outrageously rich in attitude.

I ran into her at the grocery store today.  She had a big, red wound on her pretty, little nose.  I asked her what happened.  She apparently was cooking the grits at her church yesterday, when it splattered and gave her a second degree burn.  "Thank God it didn't get my eye!" was her final response.

"Thank God it didn't get my eye" ???   Other people would have lamented about the pain, the inconvenience, the future scar, the bad luck, you name it, they would have delved into it.  Not Kelly Shahan.  She's just happy it didn't hit her eye.  Aha!  Therein lies Kelly's secret:  the glass is always half full...

Kelly is a successful business woman, a successful wife (married to the same man, her best friend, for the past 20 years), a successful mother of the most popular girl in school, a brainiac teenage goddess/honors student.   Kelly Shahan, in my opinion, is the most successful woman I know.  When I grow up I want to be Kelly Shahan!

Kelly and I were born on the same day (not the same year).  Here we are celebrating our birthdays together in 2005.  My mom is on the right.






       Kelly and her husband and the girls (our daughters, who are best friends).  My, how the girls have grown.  This picture was taken a mere three years ago and they are now gorgeous, young ladies...

Kelly, you are the greatest!  I've known you for ten years and you've always amazed me with your sunny, joyous and kind way of being!  I am proud to be your friend!  By the way, Amanda loves you and thinks you are the nicest mom she knows.  She says that all the girls wish their moms were like you and they would gladly switch places with Jade in a New York minute if they had the chance.

Hi Mirela:  What a great story, and what an even nicer tribute to your friend Kelly Shahan.  It sounds like you have picked a really neat woman to pattern yourself after.  Thanks for sharing.

Karen:  Thank you for that lovely comment!

Keith:  I agree entirely.  Now and always.  Life is too short to not appreciate it at full value.
