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...

so this just happened...

I stopped by the cemetery.
The sun was setting and dusk was settling in.
Sometimes there are strange people close by so I chose to sit in my car.
I rolled the window down and did what I always do when I
visit Kristen's grave. I start singing
"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine..."
Just as I finished the song the red and silver windmill that I had
previously placed on Kristen's grave started spinning.
No big deal, right? Well maybe not if the the wind had been blowing,
but it wasn't. I even checked the nearby flag and it stood still.
The leaves on the trees were also still.
 Everything was still except that little windmill. 


This little girl of mine still knows how to warm my heart.
