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...

something to work on & orphan spotlight day 6

I came across this quote and I immediately  thought, wow, something else I can work towards.

"The highest form of inner strength and power requires no
outward display of validation.
It seeks only to spread it's energy to others in the most positive of ways;
quiet kindness, restraint, patience and genuine concern."

Let's just say I have a lot of work to do.

Well my friend, you certainly have been busy spreading the love and light of Kristen.These postings of these precious children, are such an amazing way to be keeping Kristen's light bright.

Thought about you and your girl this weekend as we celebrated Zoey's 5th birthday.Remembering the sweet game you sent last year. Finding a card that Kristen wrote to Zoey the year before, with her sweet backwards 'K'. Thankful for our connection through our girls but mainly, missing her for you,these days and always.
