Kristen's little sister, Kim, left for college today. It was pretty sad to see her packing up her things. She spent this past year at the community college and we all decided that was the best thing as Kristen was diagnosed with leukemia just a week or two after school started. It was an enormous help to have Kim living at home, plus Kristen loves Kim and she was able to come visit us in the hospital almost every day. Kim got her certification as an EMT and also a CNA in High School. She always thought she wanted to be a nurse but things have changed a little and now she is thinking about a History Major and a Masters in administration. She would love to teach high school history and then work into administration as a principal. Kim is only about 100 miles away so we plan on seeing her often. She already has plans to come home this weekend to run a half marathon with her other 2 sisters. She got a job at this cute old fashion Malt Shop on main street thanks to my childhood friend who owns it. Kristen and I can't wait to go visit her.
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!
