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!

oh my heart Polly! We went through this in March, we're still not put back together, lost our whole lower level. our insurance said NO WAY! Any chance of FEMA being called in? Was it isolated or did many people get hit like you.

I'm so sorry!! And i know first hand what you're going through.

Hang tight, we're all praying. It will work out. Just remember you're not alone... ever!!
