What is this?

What is this? I don't really know, other then a continuation of my updates and writings that I was sharing previously on Caringbridge of this journey through cancer and now widowhood and single parenting.

Maybe it won't end up being anything at all, or maybe it will be a glimpse into my heart, my life, my current situation, my testimony.

Whatever it becomes, I am touched that you are interested.

HeartLight Gala

Last night I had the privilege of my story being honored at the annual HeartLight Gala Fundraiser.  It was a beautiful evening raising awareness and funding for a place so dear to my heart.  I was surrounded by some of my "village" and could not have asked for more.  Ok, well, to not need to be a part of anything for grief support would be nice, but these are the cards I have been dealt and I'm going to play them as best I can.  I am so grateful to the HeartLight center and what it has done for me in my journey of loss and grief.  I hope that in time many other HeartLight facilities will be available to serve as a warm place to take a broken heart all over Colorado and the nation.

If you feel lead to honor Brandon in a donation to the HeartLight Center you can do so here.

Forgive my video quality, I am far from technically gifted....that was Brandon's forte...


  1. Beautiful!! So happy to hear you are doing well! Continuing to lift you up in prayer often.
    Love, Debbie J.

  2. My dearest Christina, I loved watching your video and listening to your journey thus far! <3 <3 You are truly amazing! I am SO happy that Heartlight Center was able to provide extra support and be a safe place for you to express your grief. I agree with you wholeheartedly!! There is a need for loss and grief centers, all over the country, to hold the hearts and provide a safe place for those who are grieving. I am hoping that is in the plan for me, opening a loss and grief center here in PA :) I just need to wait and see if beating the big "C" is in God's plan for me . . . not sure at the moment. Love ya girl! You are doing good work!! :-)
    Also, you might want to let those who shop on Amazon know that if they order from http://smile.amazon.com/ they can choose a nonprofit and Amazon donates a portion of their purchase to a nonprofit of their choice. When I signed up, Heartlight Center was one of the nonprofits that they can choose :)


Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
