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!

The bears are ready

 Tomorrow we will make our 4th Build a Bear drop.
The bears are being delivered to the children in the ICS unit
at Primary Children's Hospital. 
This will bring the total bears delivered in Kristen's name to just under 100.
When Kristen was a patient there she received a Build a Bear and it
completely made her day. We are hoping to return the favor by making
a few children smile.
I am so thankful to many friends and family who donated bears.
Thank you so very much!

Last week Ryan finished his Eagle project. 
He made and collected items for these 24 activity bags.
These bags were also delivered to the children in the ICS unit.

Thank you again to the many who helped with these projects.

Now I think it is time for a Christmas smile from our sweet angel.
