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!

So here's the proof...


Proof that Kristen doesn't sit up in her bed all day.
Kristen has spent most of her time in her pajamas the past few days. She gets dressed and  all ready for the day comes down to the family room and organizes her stuff (You'll notice her beads there on the couch) and then before I know it she is back upstairs getting her pajamas on and sitting in her bed. I thought I really need to get a picture of her doing something besides sitting her bed.
 I have been a bit worried as she seems to have no energy at all.
She gets completely wore out just doing the smallest things.
Hopefully her energy will return soon.
Easter is coming and that means
tons of fun and tons of pictures cause we love to party.

Hi there,
This is my first time posting and wanted to say that Kristin is beautiful! I am praying her strength and energy comes back. I am a special needs mommy as well. My little guy has PDD. I love your blog :)

Ooo, I love that headband. Kristin looks beautiful in this shot!! What are the beads about? I just started following you not too long ago, so I don't know the story. :-) I'm curious!

Kristin's mom - I'm Madey's mom. I want to thank you for the tender mercy you sent our way the other day. Madey spent quite a bit of time looking through your blog the other night as she lay in her hospital bed... Tell Kristin thanks for the smiles, and Madey would be honored to have Kristin run in her 5k! Our prayers are with you and your family.

I am glad the cards bring a smile to her face - she deserves it!! (I have fun picking them out - and Carver too when he comes shopping with me!) My brother Chris used to LOVE getting cards too!

It's understandable for her to have such low energy, after everything she's gone through, and here I complain about having no energy I should really think twice before complaining. But lovely to see her up and about looking so pretty. Hope Kristin gets her strength back really soon so she can be doing fun stuff again.

Kristen looks great, but she does look tired. I can only imagine how taxing it must be on her little body to rebuild like that.
Polly, how long did it take your other daughter to feel better from the mono? My girls' doctor said it could take up to a year for the fatigue to go away. Also, did she ever have any flair ups afterwards?

My name is Sarah said...

Hi Kristen, It's me Sarah. You look so beautiful in this picture. I really like your shirt and your flower headband. I think you are feeling a little better. That is so good. I can't believe all the beads you have. You definately earned them all.

I am on spring break this week. We had planned a little trip to Kentucky but then I started having trouble breathing so we did not go. I think we will go see the new Miley Cyrus movie today. The theater is really close to the hospital just in case my inhalers don't work.
