It is not coincidental that my wedding took place in October, but another, more complex anniversary also falls at the end of this month. Fourteen years since hearing the news that I had breast cancer, the long painful and frightening journey began from that point. It is important to hold to that date, not just to grieve for the losses, but to embrace the healing that has been a direct result of that terrible challenge. A time to count blessings, and consider ways to sustain and further the healing. October emerges into rites of celebration. Marking the passage of time and the strength of tradition is a powerful way to aid the flow of positive energy for a true appreciation of the present, unfolding as it will toward the infinite possibilities of the future.
