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...

fairies and frogs

Summer seems to be quickly coming to and end.
In about 10 days the children will be returning to school. 
We love summer.
With the help of the kids we made a fairy garden.
By now it's almost completely overgrown.
You know what they say about fairies...
A rustle in the wind tells you a fairy is near!
We believe in fairies and their glistening fairy dust.






We even caught a frog!
This girl is the only one who dared to pick it up.



Another sign summers end is near...

The other morning I was feeling overwhelmed
with a lot of things. I wondered what the
next few months would bring. 
I even had a little anxiety set in.
I stepped outside and just at that very moment
a family of quail flew in and landed in the bushes
in front of me. 
A orange butterfly soon joined them and twirled about.
I suddenly felt calm and a feeling of peace set in.
I knew everything would be alright.
