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...

ice cream you scream

So Kamie is vying for "favorite aunt."
She doesn't know it but she is already everyone's favorite.
Hey as long as she invites me she can keep vying. (hint)
This past week she took  8 of the kiddies out to Leatherby's.
By the looks of the pictures I'd say it was a success.







Ask this little one what she had at Leatherby's and she answers with a great big
"Nana Spit."



We are blessed as life continues to take us for a ride. 
Our hope is that we can continue to adjust our sails 
as we try to stay the course.

"As we venture forth on our individual voyages, may we sail safely the seas of life. 
With the never-failing rudder of faith guiding our passage,
 we too will find our way safely home. “Home is the sailor, home from sea.” 
Home to family, home to friends, home to heaven, home to God."
~Thomas S. Monson
