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...

get your candles ready

Please light a candle tomorrow night (Sunday)
at 7pm in remembrance of our sweet Kristen and many other
children who have passed away, that their light may always shine.

The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends
 around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor and 
remember children who have died at any age from any cause. 
As candles are lit at 7 p.m. local time, hundreds of thousands of persons 
commemorate and honor the memory of all children gone too soon.
Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe,
 the Worldwide Candle Lighting, 
creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone. 
Hundreds of formal candle lighting events are held and thousands 
of informal candle lightings are conducted in homes as 
families gather in quiet remembrance of children who have died, 
but will never be forgotten.
