The Miracle of Hair

This week marks the 1 year anniversary of my last chemo treatment.  It is hard for me to believe I went through what I went through with cancer.  It was such a hard time, even though the last 2 1/2 months may have been just as difficult emotionally.  Today I was the guest speaker during our Primary Sharing Time.  The topic was on faith.  I talked to the kids about the faith that it took for me to struggle through cancer and losing my hair.  I told them that I have 9 nieces and nephews who I was determined to live for.  I talked about how these kids prayed that I would get better and how their faith grew as they saw this miracle take place.  I then told them about Aidree's prayer at Thanksgiving how she prayed that my hair and eyelashes would grow back and how Bridget said when I was crying over the prayer, "Why you cry?  Your hair grow back."  The sweetest thing occurred in the kitchen last week when I was home, just before Tristen drove back to SLC.  Bridget and I were the only ones in the kitchen.  She looked at me and said, with a slight question in her voice, "Heavenly Father made your hair grow back."  I said, "Yes Bridgy, He did, because he answered your prayers." I hope that my nieces and nephews never forget the miracle that they witnessed.  I truly feel like a miracle and am so grateful for miracles in my life.  I was reading this week in Ether 12 of the miracles that the Lord performs, but only after we have faith.  How grateful I am for the many examples in the scriptures of those who had faith and the miracles that took place because of their faith...Oh the difference a year makes!
