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!

Some Halloween FUN!

Last Halloween Kristen and I were in the hospital just starting round 2 of chemo.  She had a spinal tap in the morning and she wore her Hannah Montana wig down to the RTU (rapid treatment unit).  She was in good spirits, but because her ANC was below 500 she could not participate in any of the activities that the hospital had.  We spent the day in our room receiving chemo.  This Halloween was much better!  Kristen is healthy! She wanted to be Sleeping Beauty, so we found her another wig and a princess dress.  Her grandma has a Halloween party every year so we got lots of pictures of cousins, aunts and uncles.  I went for an easy costume "Octomom" .  It was a fun day.
