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...

Santa Coke

I had my first Santa Coke for the season!
Kristen's favorite.
When Kristen was in the hospital I would call the kitchen and order her meal.
She was always very specific as to what she wanted to eat.
Food was one of her favorite things. 
When I would order her food I would always conclude by saying,
"She would also like a Coke."
Kristen would then speak up really loud and say.
"Santa Coke."
I then had to ask the nice person on the phone to please send up a Santa Coke.
They did.


Those who leave sweet memories live forever 
in our hearts.
