Mother Nature's Lessons - Appreciate your Root Friends

You may find 2 to 3 people in your life that are roots and these people stick with you, they're not going anywhere.

These are the people that add the nutrients to your life. They give of themselves, just staying hidden in the background, while you get all the glory. Their wisdom is the strength seen on your 'bark'. These people are very deep and speak with such profound words.

They loved you when you were young; they stood with you as you grew. And when it seems like you weren't going to make it, like the roots that go deeper into the ground to find water, they look deeper than your current circumstance and know that you are going to be alright - you just need the support and you'll get it.

These 'root' people, stick with you through thick and thin. No matter what the weather, whether rain or shine, snow or hail, they're there with you. They may not always be there physically, but their hearts are with you.

Regardless of what others have to say about you, no matter what tales were told about you, they love you not because of but in spite of. Sometimes they may be the silent ones but their strength is felt when you are with them. They don't need your approval to love you. These folks are very rare but they are assigned to you along the matrix of life. You may not see them for a while, but when you need help, they usually show up at the time when they're most needed.

Cherish and appreciate your 'root' friends and/or family for they were strategically and divinely placed in your life to sustain your very existence.
