- Peace for Shawn and I, for Kyle and Miranda and Braden and Connor, for our parents and siblings and nieces and nephews and inner circle friends watching and hurting as we go through this
- that God would keep soft our children's hearts toward Him through all the emotions of this hard journey
- strength and stamina; physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually
- that the cancer shrinks to gone, gone, gone!
- gentle side effects to this second round of chemo

Goodbye 2013

New Year's Eve.

Farewell 2013.
I wanted to be angry with you.  I wanted to kick you to the curb.  But the reality is that when I think on this past year all I see is notes and cards and gift cards and blankets and scarves and gift baskets and prayers and kindnesses and silver linings.  We have been so very, very blessed.

Happy New Year's, friends!

Welcome 2014 and all of the blessings that you will bring!   


  1. New Hope for a New Year!
    2013 was extremely difficult. I can't help but think of the many difficult moments and days. Beside these thoughts I can see the Footprints plaque on the bathroom wall on Windsor street which I remember reading over and over when we were growing up... "When you notice only one set of footprints in the sand it was then that I carried you".
    Thank you Jesus for carrying Kristin & Shawn & Kids over the last year. Days when Kristin couldn't put her foot in front of the other you carried her. You carried each of us. Lord Thank you for every blessing and every miracle our family has received this past year!

  2. Praying, hoping & believing that 2014 will be the year you get your miracle Kristin!
