Moving to a New Place

image

This morning I needed to transplant a tree that was growing on the side of a steep embankment. It needed to be moved if it was to remain healthy and reach its full potential. Digging at an angle is precarious work and there were times when I wondered if it was worth all the trouble but it was too late to stop. If the tree was going to live I had to finish. Finally, I was able to remove the tree and planted it in a nice sunny, even spot.  Hopefully, it’ll take root and be happy in its new home.

As I was digging, and sweating!, I thought about some of the families I work with and the environments where they’re trying to grow. What they need is someone to come and put in the hard work of helping them move to a brighter, more balanced place. It isn’t easy but if they aren’t given the opportunity a negative outcome is almost certain. Growth, health, reaching their full potential isn’t guaranteed but giving up isn’t an option. After all, there were folks who never gave up on me and if it weren’t for them I wouldn’t have the life I have today.

blessings,
