Happy Birthday to Connie Marcum Wong! - Kim Merryman's Blog

About Kim Merryman
(Show Details...)
Bloggers Photo   Hi! My name is Kim Merryman. I was born April 27, 1959 in Louisville, KY but grew up in Rancho Cordova, CA.  My husband's name is Rob. We were married on May 30, 1981 and we have two grown sons named Daniel and Matthew, and a black cat named Max.

    I currently live in Niceville, FL located in the Florida Panhandle, near Eglin AFB. With my husband being in the Air Force we have moved around a little. We have lived in California, Florida, Texas, Okinawa and North Carolina.

    I am a Christian and many of my poems reflect that.  I've only been writing poetry for 7 years. Most of my inspiration comes while I'm reading my Bible.

     My other interests include reading, crocheting, counted-cross stitch, and playing Scrabble.

     I'm so glad I found Poetry Soup. Since becoming a member I have learned so many new forms. The contests have stretched my creativity and the positive comments are so encouraging.  Even though I've never met you, I feel like I know you. Looking forward to a long, happy relationship with all of you.

Happy Birthday to Connie Marcum Wong!

How lovely and appreciated is your wonderful comment Panagiota. Thank you so much. You give me far too much credit as a poet tho, I learn from reading everyone here, how to improve my efforts as a poet. My birthday was shared with my twin sister living in California. It was a memorable one. Thank you very much dear friend. Blessings and love, Connie xxoo

Thank you Jan. I had a Hawaiian birthday at the pools at the Disney Aulani Hotel where my granddaughter loves to go. She beat me two times in our swim race! She just learned how to swim. Instead of cake my daughter treated me to warm Sweet-potato malasadas. Kind of like a sugar coated donut without the hole. Very yummy. It was a treat to come home to this blog. I had a great day! Love, Connie
