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...

let's get the party started

I already have a lot of Halloween pictures, so I decided I should start posting
some of them now. Last weekend was my mother in laws 
annual Halloween party. She hasn't missed a party since I joined the family 
almost 33 years ago. Every year she has another original costume
and this year didn't disappoint.

I feel a little guilty celebrating when so many on the east coast are suffering.
Not to worry though, I heard Chris Christie is canceling Halloween
and rescheduling it for later in the week.

If you are wanting to help in the rescue efforts for those affected by
hurricane Sandy, the Red Cross is a great place to start.

Great costumes, although Cinderella changed a little there at the end. :)

Our church is close with Brooklyn Tab and they are working with an organization on the east coast. We've sent money to them. I can't imagine what they're going through back there.
