A soft, gentle breeze Rustles the crackling leaves From the surrounding trees. They sway back and forth Gliding across the blue sky, Dancing ever so lightly- On the wings Of the cooler Autumn air- Making their journey Back down to earth. This is a season Of transformation. A time of letting go, And for some – A time of rebirth. The closing of a window, Another chapter. The shadows of summer Fading- Faster and faster. Warmer days Drifting away, And cooler temperatures Greeting us at sunrise, The brisk autumn air Beginning to freeze Under the twinkling night sky. The time of shorter days, And longer nights. Warmth from The afternoon sun Occasionally beckons Us all – back outside And we bask In bliss and gratitude- Delighted by the Colors, and beauty in The changing season. Fall has arrived, And winter isn’t far behind. A time for deeper reflection, Looking within, Slowing down, Cozying up, And leaning in- To change. I am thankful For every fleeting moment And memory made. My family And our time here Together Is everything!
Life’s most precious moments- are fleeting. My heart is alive and well, and still beating.
I’ve been busy living every minute- to the fullest. In the quiet moments, I am grieving. But in the face of it all, I remain upright and stoic.
I may crumble in the dark- but God brings me right back to His light. I may get angry at the journey that lies in front of me. But God is holding my hand tight.
I didn’t ask for this, and I’d rather not have to do it. But God brought me to this- and He will bring me through it.
I choose to set my sights on every silver lining that lies before me. I choose faith over fear, and I hold onto hope with all the courage I have- even while I am mourning.
I believe wholeheartedly that our life journey is for a reason. We may not understand our hardships or life difficulties- but we must remain steadfast, trust in Him and keep believing.
I will give my all- to be a beacon of bright light for all who may go down a similar life journey. This isn’t me going into battle. This is me going through some tough-ass moments, letting go, big personal growth, and so much learning.
Cancer does not, and will not ever define me. I will rise and face the music directly in front of me, bask in God’s healing light, and breathe in peace, as I begin the painful process of leaving this cancer behind me.
