Like a Tree

Like a Tree

I love this tree-a fews years ago I made a trip to St. Louis and this is what I saw.  Coming from Arizona we don’t get the chance to see this type of beauty-very rarely.  It reminded me of a tree my great grandmother had, she lived in California where the foliage is impeccably beautiful and probably taken for granted.

I’ve begun to live my life quite like a tree.  I understand now there are season’s of change and each one has it’s own individual worth.  I stopped fearing the leaves falling off, or the bare branches much like my head was once bald from the poison of chemo therapy it grew back.  I understand now that spring will come, that summer also will come–that this is all a part of my journey of living.
