I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

What a difference a few months make...

My daughter found these pics on her friends camera that
were taken in February.
When I look at Kristen today and get fustrated because her progress seems slow, all I have to do is look back at the past few months and remember what she has been through. She is such a little angel! And what a fight she put up! I don't let a day pass without telling her
that I love her and that I am so happy to be her mom.

We all need gentle reminders now and then. Glad she found the pictures :-)

You are a great mom for encouraging and expressing your love for Kristen daily.
The kids grow up way to fast. Our little girl turns twenty two years old this year. :-)
Remember boring is good when it comes to AML.
Keep up the good work!
