Thanks for your Kindness

I can’t begin to tell you how much your kindness and interest in what I have to say, has changed my life. I didn’t know about blogs until this March, when one of my biggest fans, Sandy, told me I should start one of my own. It has been a great boost to my morale to have so many people enouraging me and telling me to keep sharing my lifes story. I have not advertised my blog page to many, other than my closest friends, and yet I have almost 13,000 hits to my site as of today.

I know that my life is not easy, and it is a hard life for my family, but I am so blessed today. I am living my life the best way I can. To be honest with you, I have been very sick lately. I don’t know what it is, but I don’t feel very energetic. My tests all come back normal, but I am not well, so it has been a difficult month for my parents and I .

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving tomorrow. I am praying that I won’t have a seizure tonight so I can enjoy our guests. We have twelve people coming and I love every one of them. We had so much fun last year and I anticipate the same this time. I hope everyone has friends and family with them tomorrow, and that it is a day to be thankful.

Love, Karly

    I have been praying for you the past couple of days. I know times are tough right now, but I am writing to tell you that you don’t have to worry, everything is going to be okay. I know how you feel; I went through what you’re going through, and I am still here. I am hoping that when you feel better we can get together. I am missing e-mailing you. I want you to know that I’m here for you if you need a friend to talk to.

    Your new friend Jenni

    I will say prayers for your seizures to stop, and for your health to be restored. I look forward to hearing your new song. I admire you for the hard work that you are willing to do in order to write music. Thank you for sharing your talents.

    My husband and I took Mary Claire and her family to Tennesse for a week of vacation during her Thanksgiving break. We all saw the Rockettes Christmas show and the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman. Mary Claire really enjoyed the music, and she loved the dancing. It is just wonderful to share fun times with her. She and her younger brother bring us so much joy.
