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!

Quiet Sunday

Quiet is good. As I sit here with a little too much time on my hands I found this video called "Childhood Cancer Poem"  It is fitting for today as the words of the poem touch my heart and
I am sure it will yours. Enjoy

I dreamt of your hair like ripened corn,
I saw your eyes of wonderful blue,
a smile so sweet, a heart so true,
a daughter I wanted, a proud father for you,
all that I wanted and my wish did come true,

To bath you or feed you was never a chore,
to read you a story, never a bore,
to walk with you, talk with you,
these things we would do,
my love and protection I gave gladly to you
I give them now and forever more,

I've watched you grow, learn wrong from right
watched as you slept on many a night,
these are not a duty but a true fathers' right,
born under the sign that has threatened your life,
these past months have been pain, sorrow and strife,
but right here beside you is where I have been,
that is what being a father really should mean,

To stand by you through thick or through thin,
to keep open my heart to shelter you in,
no matter how difficult, painful or bad,
stressful, depressing or sad,
things always seem brighter when you call me Dad,

I've watched as you battled, suffered and fought,
and screamed with frustration for I could do naught,
to ease you, help you or even take it away,
I sat there helpless day after day
with strength and with courage you found the answer,
to defeat this cruel enemy, this insipid thing called Cancer.
