Autumn is my favorite season. I love watching the leaves change from green to orange, red, yellow, and brown. The weather is also gorgeous during this time of the year. It’s not excruciatingly hot like summer or freezing cold like winter. It is also not as unpredictable and windy as it is in the spring.
The last seasons have been unbearably difficult for me. I went through all winter long mourning for my father’s passing. Then spring painfully surprised me with the return of my child’s cancer. In the summer I was dealing with uncertainties in life. But this autumn, just like the changing of the leaves, my life is also changing. The falling leaves symbolize a new beginning. A life without tears, pain, and suffering.
Cancer is gone.
