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...

fun filled week

Once again it came.
The Kirton annual Half Moon Lake camping trip.
It happens every year.
 It comes rather you are ready or not.
Many memories were made and traditions carried out.
It is always fun to pack up and leave and it is also fun
to return home. I appreciate a few simple things like a hot shower,
sleeping in a bed instead of in the dirt, and having clean feet.

This year I took almost 500 pictures.
It's going to take me a while to sort and edit them,
here's a few to get me started.


















Lots more to come.
