Side by side
Two trees growing
On separate journeys
Yet woven together
What are these trees?
Our family members
All of the above
We are on a journey of growth. And at times, our paths are intertwined. Many times that leads to opportunities to lift each other up, to bear one another's burdens, to hold a hand, to challenge one another, to touch a heart, and to make a difference.
As you grow and your branches extend in a variety of directions,
allow the wind to blow but not to break you,
allow other branches to cross your path and guide you,
allow yourself to keep reaching wider and higher,
and stand tall and strong against the obstacles that try to bend you.
