The Carly Henley Project.

On my way to work today, I was listening to the radio and I heard the following story:


To summarize a young woman took her life last year, and her family started a project after her death to help promote the music that she loved and wrote. Her words are very touching in her music and reflect the inner thoughts of many young women that struggle with confidence and insecurities.

What struck me even more when listening to this story was her father and his voice. The voice of a father who lost his daughter. In his own words, he said that he still thinks everyday if there was something different he could have done.

A wise mommy friend of mine once told me that 'little children, little problems', and 'big children, big problems'. This is one of those cases. For now I worry about when she will eat, when she will talk, but later I will worry why she isn't talking to me and who she is talking to. And how can I protect her from heart break. Your child's safety, well being, and life is always on your mind as a parent. Unfortunately there will be so much out of your control.
