I had to trim a broken fingernail this morning.

It’s anniversary time for me because 18 years ago on January 30 I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, later recognized as Stage III. In my first years of recovery, when I was trying everything I could discover what could possibly help me get well and stay well, I was briefly part of a cancer support group.

One of the members at one of our meetings said, “There will come a time when you will break a fingernail and be upset.” I smiled but wondered if I would live that long.

Well, I had to trim a broken fingernail this morning, and I was reminded of those promising words which came true for me. I feel very grateful.

I am holding everyone I know who has battled cancer in my heart at this special time of year.
