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...

Happy Thanksgiving

I found this verse in a Thanksgiving card. 
It's pretty fitting for my girl.

At Thanksgiving, (and each and every day), 
you are fondly remembered, in the special 
ways you have touched so many lives. 
Your smile is the brightness of the warm 
sunrise, your laughter finds me in the 
autumn breeze, and the warmth of your love 
will always bring joy to my soul. 
Although we are apart in this life, your 
memory is alive in my heart! We will always 
be together in love, and in spirit.
Happy Thanksgiving in Heaven!
