The Army of Love

Fueled by Courage and Hope

The No One Fights Alone Army is an Army of Love inspired by the journey of one's battle with Leukemia. Every day we choose HOPE, when doubting would be easier.

We choose to FIGHT LIKE MIKE, trusting God will do the rest.

We stand tall because we know deep in our roots we are never alone. We want to pay it forward and give others the hope we have felt from those who love us dearly and those who are complete strangers. This is our dream. Our hopes that in your darkest hours you too, know you are NEVER ALONE. We hope you will find this website a place where you can find stories of hope and inspiration, share your stories, and connect with others.

We hope you find it a place where you can

FEEL love. SHARE love. That's all.

 

 

Our Family

The song Away in a manger , specifically the one by Jeremy camp , has been my prayer throughout this advent season.

His voice alone is extremely powerful but the words are what have been my comfort these past two months. 

Be Near me Lord. 

Be near me Lord. 

He comes close to screaming...

Today's quote on the calendar Rob and Leah gave me is this

"The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more energy you will have."

Norman Vincente Peale

When I feel the worst. The saddest. The most anxious. The most angry.

Is when I have selfishly narrowed my view to my own world and own problems that I...

2 post in a week! 

I have never been a very patient person.  I guess I could say I do have some patience for mundane , everyday small interruptions. Like children and their 24 hour needs 😜

But when it comes to big problems and issues that need to be resolved, my stomach turns to knots and my focus narrows solely on that pa...

On this rainy Monday, I wanted to share this hopeful article that I came upon a couple weeks ago. 

It is the story of the 12 year old little girl, Laura Graves, who became the first person to receive a bone marrow transplant from a non related donor in the year 1979.

It does not have the happy ending of her surviving a...

Day +731 HAPPY 2nd Birthday.. yesterday :)(I apologize for the length, sounding preachy, and rambling in advanced )

As my heart continues to find the balance between grief and joy, anger and love, jealousy and gratitude, fear and faith- I am choosing the latter of all of these this month. 

November now has a new meaning of...

My sister in law, Nancy, sent this to me a couple weeks ago and it has become a favorite now. It put a new spin on , keep swimming.

Many days I am swimming through these rough seas, pretending to have the strength and bravery of a shark.

Our mind is a powerful thing.

I believe Mike does this most everyday. He keeps his head...

I wrote this before I sent the update out to family and friends about Mike. I had intended to send this first but more words were put on my heart to share instead. 

So I thought I would share these words here for those of you interested. there is some overlap between the two posts:) So take it for what it is worth to you :...

Friday came and went.

But Monday still has alliteration. Mike Monday :)

So here is a Monday thought.

Adrift

Everything is beautiful and I am so sad. This is how the heart makes a duet of wonder and grief. The light spraying through the lace of the fern is as delicate as the fibers of memory forming their web around the knot i...
