This may be long, but I just have to tell you!!!!!



Today I had to go to the doctor , I have been really sick for the last several days , so today I finally went to the doctor and was told that I had Bronchiitis, and a really bad sinus infection. I have been sick more this year than I have been in the last 5!! But I am working with a bunch of little ones now , so I swim around in a pool of germs everyday and that to must take its course......OK so anyway, today I get an email from my beautiful DIL Traci, and it was one of those emails that says a prayer with you and that if you forward it, basically something good will happen to you.....

So first of all my Granny was a big fan of Danielle Steel and had all of her books, and while I was in High school I started reading these books with my Granny that I loved oh so much. She is gone now ,but I have her entire collection of Danielle Steel paperbacks. I know it must sound odd ,but I find great comfort when I open them up and see my Granny's name written in her handwriting.....

Ok so about a month ago Danielle Steel was on "The View", she spoke about her website and I tentatively wanted to make my own personal list of her books that I have not yet read. You see sometimes I feel guilty reading for pleasure when I should actually be reading the Bible. But sometimes in life there is just nothing better than before I go to bed at night to get lost in another world!!!!! So, I went to the website and made my list and left her a little note . You see she said on the show that she answers all of her own mail, but I never thought I would get this:

Dear Kristy,

Thank you so very much for your lovely letter about my books. I was very touched to hear how long you have been reading them and what they have meant to you, going back to Wanderlust. It's heartwarming to hear that your late grandma got you started reading them, and that you inherited her collection.

I'm especially touch to hear about the girl you are adopting and about her middle name -- what an honor! Thank you again for sharing your good words with me. I appreciate hearing from a reader and caring mother like you, and I send you all my warmest regards.

With best wishes,

Danielle Steel

CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?!!!!!!! I was so excited. There might be a few of you that think this is silly, but my Granny would LOVE this, and I am soooo telling her when I get to see her again. Thanks for being patient with me and listening. THANK YOU TRACI!!!LOVE YOU BIG!!!

I'm so very sorry you are not feeling well! I sure hope you are on the road to recovery and feeling like yourself very soon.

How cool is that response from Danielle Steele!!!

I was wondering, of Maddy's pictures, which pose would you like?

That is so cool that Danielle Steele wrote to you!! I have heard that she is very nice and now I see that it is true; besides the fact that she is the mother of several children (i think like 6 or so)

Hope you feel much better soon!!

OH MY #6 said...

You are so sweet! Hope you feel better soon.

That is very cool! What a kind and personal letter.

As for the sinus infections, you need to try a Neti Pot. I will keep you clean of infections. You will be so surprised such a natural item works better than antibiotics.

So glad that happened to you Kristy!! Love you too!

I am very impressed that Danielle Steele writes everyone back. It seems as if it was quick too. WOW!
I to have read every Danielle Steel book out there. I got hooked in the beginning due to the historical references she would use in some of her books.

Hope you feel better soon. No better time to curl up in bed with a new Danielle Steele novel.

Kristy,

First of all, feel better. I think we have all had the plague this year.

Oh my golly, how amazing is it that Danielle Steele wrote to you??? So cool!

Thank you for stopping by our blog and leaving such wonderful comments. Trust me, your time will come and I really do get it how hard the waiting is, the promise at the end is so fabulous.

Blessings to you,

So cool to hear from your favorite author! I'm still on cloud nine since my Evanovich meeting!

Hope you feel better soon!

How exciting!!! I was very close with my Granny too. I have alot of her sewing things, and love to use them when I'm sewing.

Thanks for the note on my blog! Only a few more weeks until Chicago!

Janet said...

That is so cool about Danielle Steele!!!! Wow!

And I hope you get better soon, dear!!!!

Bronchitis and sinus infection = NO FUN! I know from experience. Will pray that you feel better soon. Also, thank and God bless you for the comment on my blog. Yes, I know that a lifetime of hurts won't be absolved or solved over night. But, progress has been made and I will see it through.

oh how neat! Sorry you have been sick though...
I love Jewels and a couple more... Jewels was really neat to me.

redmaryjanes said...

I think that is fabulous! It says a lot about Danielle Steele as a person.
I hope that you are feeling better soon. This has been a tough winter with flu bugs.

Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. How Wonderful to hear from a favorite author!

The Byrd Family said...

Wow! How cool! I wrote Beth Moore once and her team wrote me back. I was still in awe!

Hope you are feeling better soon. When we were sick not too long ago I absorbed myself in Christian Fiction books. I love getting lost in another world! My husband would tell you that I wake up in a new world every day! LOL No, really...he would.

Kelley said...

Feel better soon!

I think it's very cool that you got a response from Danielle Steele...I'm not quite the fan that you are, but I've read a bunch of her books. :)

Patricia/NYC said...

How nice was that!?!? Great story, Kristy! Thanks for sharing it!

Hope you are feeling better!! Bronchitis is bad enough on its own & so is a sinus infection (I'm just getting over one myself)...but to have the double whammy is ultra hard!! Hope you are feeling much better real soon!

sara said...

That is awesome that DS responded. My lil guy and I sent judy Blume an e-mail recently and she also responded and sent us a signed book. I was so surprised at how gracious she was:)
