I blog about all different kinds of things in my life. Well, this is a tribute to my 14 year old daughter Karlen. Karlen is a pretty good girl in spite of different things that she has been through in her short lifetime - her father chosing not to be involved in her life, going through my divorce, several moves, loss of pets, etc. I have to say she is a wonderful girl with a love for Jesus, her love of children, animals. She does well in school- she is a freshman this year and taking 4Honors/Advanced classes, so she has a full load. She is quiet, doesn't like to talk too much about what's going on with her, at least not to me! She went on her first Mission Trip this summer. She is really a sweet daughter, she has helped me out so much since I had this surgery. She walks the dog every night, takes out the trash, does laundry, cleans, does dishes. I am so appreciative.
While being a single mom has been hard, a challenge, a struggle, it has also been a joy, a privilege, and a blessing and I wouldn't change a thing! I am so thankful to our God who has always provided during all times of our lives. I love you Karlen!
