Locked together in this way, all the trees support each other in wind and storms. Like the aspen,
they never stand-alone. They need one another to survive. |
People, too, are connected by a system of roots. We are born to family and learn early to make friends. We are not meant to survive long without others.
And like the redwood, we need to hold one another up. When pounded by the sometimes vicious storms of life, we need others to support and sustain us.
Have you been going it alone? Maybe it's time to let someone else help hold you up for a while. Or perhaps someone needs to hang on to you.

aspen tree, you may have noticed that it does not grow alone. Aspens are found
in clusters, or groves.
