My family surrounds me and covers me when things become difficult or scary in my life.
Rather than being lessened by the shade, I am made stronger and revived by it.
As I grew up, I would often feel that I should be able to handle everything myself; needing my family meant that I was not able to make it on my own.
I felt ashamed if I needed to call my mother when someone broke my heart.
I felt embarrassed that I needed my father to come help me with my new home.
I felt weak when I needed to talk with my siblings about the difficulties of life.
Then I realized that my family strengthens me, not weakens me.
Today, I am grateful to lean on my mother when my heart is broken, I happily ask my father to come help me with tasks at home, and I cheerfully call my siblings to vent my daily difficulties.
I feel good about the great relationship we have and enjoy the cool protection of the shade of my family tree.
How has your family made you stronger?
How have you been protected by your family tree?
