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!

one of my favorites

One of my favorite things is a gingerbread boy with 
a missing arm or leg.
I also love a gingerbread house with little bite marks
 on the gum drops.
I found both of these today as I began to put the 
Christmas decorations away.
I had to smile as I thought of those little stinkers.
At least I know they will always look forward to 
grandma's gingerbread.

This quote reminded me of my grandchildren
and what I hope for them.
In fact, I could use this as I begin a new year.
I think we all need to 
explore, dream and discover a little more.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things 
that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. 
So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor.
 Catch the trade winds in your sails. 
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
