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...

4th of July fun

 The kiddies came over for the annual sleepover and  4th of July breakfast. 
They kept me up past midnight and woke me up
at the crack of dawn. 
We partied most of the day.
Katy and Kamie both ran in a 4th of July race.
Katy came in 1st place in her age division and 6th overall. 
She proudly arrived sporting her medal, the kids were all excited.
The cemetery where Kristen is buried is not far from City Hall.
 The firework display is  across the street from the cemetery.
As the evening was coming to an end, we went to the
cemetery to watch the fireworks.
We had a perfect view. 
I wonder what the fireworks look like from where Kristen is?
