Just Show Up

I’m reading the book “Just Show Up” by Kara Tippets and Jill Lynn Buteyn in the brief moments God gives of restful reprieve while I care for my husband. I want to add that while only 1/3 into reading the book, it resonated with me deeply. If you get a chance to pick up a copy, it would bless you if you are suffering or know of one suffering.

To those of you who have “just shown up” we just want to say we’re forever grateful. We’ve received so many cards, texts, and phone calls of love which have given us courage to face this season of brain cancer one day at a time.

My brave husband continues to fight glioblastoma with very little complaint. He has a MRI this week to see how much his last 2 treatments have helped further dissolve his tumors.

We love you and appreciate your prayers.

Much love,


August 8th, our 24th wedding anniversary ❤

For You 💖

A very sweet lady wrote these comforting words for me and I now pass them along to YOU my beautiful readers. Whatever is bothering you, wherever you are, however you feel. At this very moment, YOU ARE LOVED!

Wish I could sit down with you and give you a long, gentle hug.

I am sad to hear all of the pain in your voice.

I get it though.

You are Enough.

You are Beautiful inside and out.

God is with you.

He is your nearest, your dearest Friend.

He will never leave you.

He will never forsake you.

He will never be too sick.

He will always be there for you.


I am praying that He will wrap His Arms

around you and be your Comfort and your

JOY right now.

And that’s my prayer for you too! If you are sad, lonely, depressed…..look up. God cares and hears your cries. He understands. He knows. He will never leave or forsake you. Ever. Run to Him. Sit at the foot of the cross in full surrender and let it all go.

Much love,

Viv 🙏❤
