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...

do I dare say Christmas?

Heck yes I dare
Christmas! Christmas! Christmas!
I guess you could say that I love Christmas.
One of my favorite parts about Christmas is Festival of Trees.
This year I actually have my very own committee. 
Our committee is responsible for many things, one of them is to donate a tree
or something else of significance that will raise money for the children at
Primary Children's Medical Center.
We have decided to donate a tree and the theme of our tree is 
Brave as in the new Disney movie.
Members of my committee have been asked to donate Brave themed items
to be placed under the tree. Yesterday my neighbor gave me a
Merida (the main character) doll to put under the tree.
I was so excited that I seriously skipped all the way home with doll in hand.

I can already tell that the tree is going to be fabulous.
If you haven't seen the movie yet, I highly recommend it.
