A Thankful Year in Review

Posted December 31, 2013 by Carolyn Robbins in Ovarian Cancer Awareness / 0 Comments

This past year has been a challenge in many ways. I recently was reminded of a favorite bible verse: The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. Proverbs 16:9. I thought I was going along my merry way last year when “my plans” got blown out of the water. You can read more here.
Since my cancer diagnosis in September, I have gone through chemotherapy and have finished! Have been done since the end of October and had just one wish for Christmas. I just wanted my hair back! I know that seems like a minor thing, but you do not realize how much your hair helps and means to you until you loose it!
Well, it did start to grow back just a few days before Christmas. I know I have a long road ahead to get my health back, but I am so very thankful for life I have been given. My family and friends mean more to me than I can say and want to thank them for their continuing support.

I think we all wish for things and realize that we are not in control of our lives! Only God can truly “direct our steps.” I go into this new year realizing I am totally in the palm of His hand!

The Bears and I wish you all a very Happy New Year!
