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. 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!

our beloved angel

5 years seems like such a long time.
It is a long time.
1826 days to be exact.
I miss the laughter that filled our home
I miss her smile that could light up a room
I miss her hugs
I just plain miss her.

Although I miss Kristen every single day,  
I'm 5 years closer to holding that little angel in 
my arms again. 

Today happens to be National Lollipop Day.
In honor of Kristen have yourself a lollipop.
Seriously, pick one up at the store and enjoy.
Think of her and the simple yet joyful life she lived.
Enjoy and love life.
