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!

Kristen's Daddy

Happy Father's Day
Half Moon Lake 2009

Kristen's 1st Birthday

Both Kristen and I are blessed to have this guy taking care of us.

We had a good weekend. Kristen is still feeling good, aside from the tiredness that she feels. I am anxious to see her blood counts in the morning.
She will probably need platelets either tomorrow or sometime this week.
 We have moved our daughters weddings up to July 7th. That's right...a little over 2 weeks. Their weddings were scheduled for August 18th. My husband decided that August probably would not be a good month for Kristen. He gave my girls a choice, either postpone your weddings or move them up. They both decided they would like to move them up in hopes that Kristen would still feel well enough to attend. They wanted her to be part of their special day. I think Kristen has a special calling that day,
"Maid of Honor"
