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 and Sarah are celebrities!
The April edition of
American Patchwork & Quilting
has an article featuring Sarah and Kristen.
The article talks about Sarah making pillowcases for Kristen.
I need to say that, yes, Sarah did make pillowcases for Kristen,
but there is so much more to this story than pillowcases.
It is a heartwarming story that has branched out to become so much more.
Many have been touched.
Many hands have been busy.
Many lives have been blessed.
But for this mom who has been missing her sweet girl,
there has been a reason to get out of bed  in the morning.
My aching heart has felt peace, comfort and hope.
This heart of mine has even felt
something that I thought I would never feel again.
Many thanks to Joyce and Sarah
