Today has been a better day. I’ve sat outside in the sunshine. I’ve listened to the birds sing. I noticed the trees in front of my house are budding. I’m reminded of changing seasons. I’m one round of chemo away from a new season of this journey. Winter is the season of death, and spring the season of rebirth. Chemo is the season of dying cells, and the end comes with reborn hope and new growth.
The universal color for breast cancer is pink. I get that, but it’s not been my battle color. Green is my color. Green represents growth and life. Green equals spring. A season reminding us life is beginning anew. Change breaks through the darkness bringing light back to life.
Seasons are changing, and I’m ready for change.
