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...

tea time

 Would you like
an adventure now,
or shall we have
our tea first?
~Peter Pan














Some of the littles gathered for a little tea party.
They also laughed themselves silly.

a quote and a tip

first off, a thought for the day...


second, a tip...



I was tired of going to the refrigerator to get my celery only to find that  after a couple of days it had completely lost it's crunch. I thought I would try wrapping the next round of celery in foil. I brought it home from the store and wrapped it and put it in the fridge. I forgot about it and 2 weeks later I pulled it out and to my surprise it was almost more crisp and delicious that when I had put it there. Try it.
