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...

we love summer

Summer arrived a little early in all her glory.
We had the hottest June ever!
Steaming, sweltering July has arrived.
I find myself looking for a shady nook or a cool breeze.
The back porch has become a gathering place.
We sit, drink lemonade, watch the hummingbirds and we laugh.
It feels good to do simply nothing if even for a moment.
We are soon reminded of the weeds that need pulling and the
grass and the garden that needs watering.
Work is good for the soul as is lemonade on the porch.
The "Good Life" that we are all looking for is
already here and now.
 Don't wait for tomorrow.
Be happy today.
