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. I've contemplated on many occasions rather I should quit this blog or not. Each time I am inspired that I should not. 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! This I know. Our family continues to live and to love and this is our story...

more pictures

Yesterday my niece, Hailey, came over toting her photo albums.
She said she had been looking through them and had some cute pictures of
Kristen. We scanned them and then laughed at how funny they were.

This first one is the cousins at a sleep over at Grandma Kirton's house.
Grandma bought all the girls matching nightgowns for Christmas.

 Half Moon Lake 1993 or 1994

Kate's wedding 2001

Hailey's Birhtday

Kristen is between her cousins and sisters holding a flashlight.
She loved flashlights.

Hailey thinks Kristen was just about to push someone in the pool.

I love to see pictures of Kristen, I especially love to see the pictures that
I have never seen before. I also love to hear stories about her.

Kristen was loved by so many in her short lifetime who obviously have very fond memories of their times together. Priceless indeed.
