From where you are.


Even a tree

Can bend and sway

While rooted

Right where it is.

    This art and words meant a lot to me, Colleen. I tell my grandkids they are blessed, to appreciate your “roots” and use them to grow strong and secure. Knowing everyone loves you should really help ground them while also allowing them to “soar.”

    That is exactly right. We don’t have to run from our circumstances. We just need to learn how to move and bend the right way.

    What a great perspective to share, Colleen. Being a bit “rooted” myself, I like this reminder.
