We fully surrender. 

For the past 4 years , I have desperately wanted the world we live in to slow down.

One early spring day in late April 2016  , Mike and I were unexpectedly jerked off of earth and placed on a frightening but life changing unfamiliar planet. 

Planet cancer  , where time stood still and p...

Day +1234

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. 

Psalm 143:8

 Dear fightlikemike army, 

I opened an email from a dear friend this morning that started like this ,

Just when you need everyone the most , here comes soc...

Day 1211

Psalm 19. 

Let me keep surrendering myself until I am utterly transparent. 

Dear Fight Like Mike army,

Some of you have been following along since the beginning of this fight and know the story and meaning behind my Dad’s card we carry with us each day. 

As the fight  continues , I keep thinking of the very first appo...

Sorry for the long email and random thoughts. Take what you want from them, I am aware they don’t always make sense or are grammatically correct. I continue to write thoughts throughout days with my main focus on our kid’s. So that one day when Mike HAS  beaten this stupid disease , we will be able to tell them how much h...

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him. Psalm 37.7

I wanted to send a quick update on Mike, many of you have emailed or text and we are grateful for all the love.  The weeks have seemed particularly hard. Yet I’m learning in a painful way , the longer I am patient with God , the more peace I find. 

We are...

Day +1180

You can still know peace without knowing what comes next.
Morgan Nichols 


I’m sitting in a moment of stillness that has come in the chaos of the storm of last week. Sitting beside Mike as he sleeps ( finally 😜- no pain meds or drowsy medications will make the guy sleep). But finally he seems to be sleeping a...

FLM Friday. 

All the love here. 

No Alone time or personal space ever.

Pets are healing in that way. And  probably is a good thing.

DAY + 1170

I have been struggling lately. I’ll be honest. The past two months events have by far been the toughest for us and I sometimes feel like I have hit a new low. New fears . New worries. New sadness. ( Also could men have shared the love of  hormones .. I mean dang ;)

And it’s not until I admit it or it just finally...

Spending an unwanted amount of time in the hospital gives these words a truer understanding. 

Our last 15 day stay in the hospital left me again begging for very few things in this world. Hospitals strip things down to what is important in life time and again. All I could hope for was...

  

For health. 

Health for M...

This quote was as on our calendar this past week and I have been thinking so much about it. 

  As Mike has been working his muscles  hard at physical  and occupational therapy  , I have been trying to work hard on this muscle of gratitude through these tough days. 

   It’s amazing what sleep can do to...
