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...

Valentine's Day

May our families and homes be filled with love:
Love of each other, love of the gospel, love of our fellowman,
and love of our Savior.
As a result, heaven will be a little closer here on earth.
~Monson

Having a sweet little angel of my own in heaven, I 'm always
striving to feel heaven in my home.  I have found the above quote to be true.
I am sure Kristen hasn't missed many family gatherings. 
She looked forward to each and every holiday.
We continue to celebrate just as she would want us to do.
Cupcakes, cookies, chocolate, balloons and really cute Valentine boxes
were part of our day.
