Trees of Transition

Planting seeds of hope throughout our world through sharing photography and thoughts on teaching, cooking, and life transitions.

An Invisible Strength


It’s being willing to go low, go to the bottom of the social flagpole if that is what you need to do to serve.
It’s based in love for others.
It’s cleaning up the hairs on the toilet bowl.
It’s replacing the paper towels in the dispenser that you only think about when the towels run out.
It’s doing all these menial jobs with an attitude of service, because you love people.
It is behind the scenes, but it is essential to the health of a school, business, home.
It’s humility.
Humility is essential for times of transition because life gets messy when you’re packing, moving, changing, growing.
Humility asks for help.
Humility smiles as he mops.
Humility sings while she cooks.
Humility builds an invisible, but solid, foundation for a fulfilling life.

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer, wife, mother, and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with people. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope
