Answered Prayers


Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has been keeping Sir Ronald (a.k.a. my hubby) in their prayers since he was first diagnosed with throat cancer and went through the long months of radiation, chemo, and exciting, lingering side effects.  His new CT-scan and other tests now show NO more signs of cancer. Yayyy!


He continues to recover nicely and has even regained a few of the 63 pounds of lost weight. Now he enters the standard 5-year period of scans and tests every 6 months.


It’s been a long and arduous road, as too many of you also know from your own experiences.  Whenever he wanted to quit, I could only keep trying to remind him that we just needed to get through one more day.  Just one more day.  And then one more day.


He did it.  And we get the blessing of good news… the golden light at the end of the storm.


A great many people travel the same path but do not get good news. They enter the storm but do not get to pass through it. To many prayers come answers we did not want. As hard as we may try to convince ourselves otherwise, we are not in charge.


May both the triumphs and tragedies help us gain perspective and appreciation.  Every hour… every day is a blessing.  Our struggles and successes can help us learn to count our blessings… each and every one.


Thank you again for all the love, well wishes, and prayers. Sir Ronald and I both thank you, ever so humbly.


Hug someone you love today.
