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...

Chili's is proud to support the lifesaving work of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® — finding cures and saving children with pediatric cancer and other deadly diseases. Our annual Create-A-Pepper campaign invites guests to design a custom pepper and make an individual donation to our friends at St. Jude.
As we work towards our 10-year goal of $50 million in donations to St. Jude, we're reminded of the generous guests like you who make that goal possible. To show our appreciation we're donating 100% of our net profits on September 24 to St. Jude. On The Big Day, all you have to do to help is come into Chili's for a meal. It's our way of saying thanks and supporting the brave kids of St. Jude.

I'm sorry you had to attend yet another funeral. Those angels are taken all too soon.
