Waiting for Summer!

It has been a long time since I have written.  I have been sick this month with bronchitis and I have not gotten healthy very fast.  I am frustrated because I love to be active and I am too tired and weak to go places.  I’m sick of Dr appointments being my only outing.  I feel better today, but I don’t have a lot of energy.

I love this garden fairy on our patio

Sunrise out my bedroom window


I wanted to let everyone know that I am listening to a lot of books.  I am in a book discussion group for the camp I speak at, online.  It is The Land Between.  I like it because it’s an honest book about how hard life is when we are just waiting for good things to happen.  I know there are many people who have much worse situations than I do, so I am glad for my life and my family.  But it is hard to have so little happening each day because of my health.

My Mom and I want to go someplace warm with Gregg each winter but it’s too hard to do that.  Maybe take a long road trip.  It isn’t easy for me ot travel without help so it’s a good dream, but I would love it if we had a motorhome with a lift for my chair.  We would leave today!!  It would be such a good thing to be by water and have sun on my face again.

Bloom from the vine on our patio-it helps me to remember


I am trying to listen to my heart and know that I will be able to get out soon.  I could use some encouragement today.  I have an appointment today with Karen, my music therapist.  I am working on another song.  It has taken a lot of effort to get it out, but I feel really excited about it.  I have been listening to my CD and trying to not forget my poems….I am More Than my Body.

Here is my song, Ever After with my poem I AM, read by my sister Leah. 10 Track 10

It was one year ago tomorrow that we went to the recording studio to begin recording my songs.

I hope you are well today.

Love, Karly

    I will pray for you Karly.
    I love reading your posts and hearing how you are doing but I am sorry
    you have been sick. I can understand. Plus with little sunshine, even here in Chicago,
    it can be a real downer.
    Please know you are thought of and I hope you get some warmth and sunshine and encouragement and outdoor activity soon.
    Hugs, Linda

    I hear you!!! I too have missed the warmth of the sun on my face and the glorious blooms in the garden. I am sorry to hear you have been struggling! I hope you are feeling great very soon! Know that I am just across the pond if you need anything!
