I want to be like a tree...
A tree is so much to me. It offers shelter during a storm and shade from the harsh sun in the dead heat of August summer. Trees are a provider of abundant air that we breathe and need. I want to be needed in such a fashion. To be vital to someone.
Trees are sturdy and stand their ground. Something I seek to be able to do in trying situations. Despite wind, trees stay grounded.
Some trees provide fruit and nourishment. I want to nourish others and sustain them just as tree fruit gives sustenance to those who eat it. Trees are a joy as well.
Trees provide leaves that bring laughter and joy during the autumn when they are raked in piles for kids to jump in with others. I want to offer something of joy to others in my life. To share a part of me.
Trees endure the changing seasons. Their branches stay lifted up even in the cold winters. I would like to uplift others during the sunless days of bleak winters. I want to give just as trees give and comfort others.
