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...

I was cleaning Kristen's room the other day. Claire came up to visit me.
She was trying on Kristen's slippers and then I turned around and saw this...

Kristen Loved her rain boots. I was a little sad when I noticed
how dusty they were.  After Claire was finished, I dusted them
off and put them neatly back into her closet. 
The next time it rains,  (in honor of Kristen, of course)
I think we should all put on our rain boots
and run through the rain.

I have bright pink rain boots with white dots all over them; I plan to wear them the next time it rains in honor of Kristen <3
