Happy New Year! At this time last year I never imagined that this year would bring me hoping for a new year full of hair, energy, and a cancer free bill of health. As I lay here in bed rounding out the first day of the new year (which was a great one) I can't help but hope this year is full of amazing new things. I WILL finish my treatments, I WILL have hair again, and I will also send my baby off to kindergarten and become a Mommy with no kids at home. I am sure there are a lot of other things I will do, but those 3 are the ones that are in the forefront of my mind right now.
If I was able to do anything I want this year it would be to start the new year cancer-free, but since that will have to wait I am choosing to start it out healthier- no dieting, but eating better, trying to exercise when I have the energy, and also trying to take the gifts God has given us through the last several months and use them to our benefit and his glory. Gifts such as family time, a strong marriage, and being more aware of how I can help others who are walking this road of cancer. I don't know in what capacity that will be, but I hope that my eyes have been washed clean so that I can see it clearly.
This last year has brought us to our knees and my prayer is that in the year to come we will stay on our knees!
