Trees of Transition

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


Hi! My name is Mary, and writing helps me process life, so I enjoy sharing my writing with others and passing along what I’m learning.

My life contains many people, who are always transitioning to another stage in their development. We don’t think about the transitions adults go through as much as we do with kids, but I’m learning that how we transition through things has a big influence on the next part of our lives.

This blog is a place to receive hope about different transitions you may be going through, and it helps me process things in my life, and if you can be encouraged through my stories, thoughts, and musing, that fulfills my desire for this blog.

Please post thoughts or questions you may have about what I write, and I’ll get back to you.

Here’s a few more things about me:

I describe myself as full of hope: Child-like at times in actions (jumping into a pile of leaves and throwing them in the air) and attitude (I’m much less jaded than most thirty-somethings). Connecting people, words, and ideas invigorates me.

This blog, Trees of Transition, reflects my desire to share hope through words, thoughts, and photos that portray a transition or how to get through a certain kind of transition, such as grief, job loss, or just plain growing up. Since I’m interested in many topics, I chose transitions to be the theme of my blog because humans are always transitioning whether we like it or not. How we process one transition will influence the next one. I desire to help people transition well through life by encouraging and challenging them through the pieces I post on my blog.

A weakness that I have in regards to writing is that I don’t always edit my work as much as it needs. This plays into a strength I have that is coming up with many ideas to write about (and so I just send off the one I just worked on in order to work on the new idea); the ideas just keep coming. As I mature as a writer, I desire to continue writing down my ideas, choosing the best ones, taking the time to write, revise and editing my work so that it enlightens and brings joy to many.

One person that makes me very happy is my nephew, Jack. His peacefulness and joy amazes me, and his smiles help me remember what is most important: loving people!

  1. Transitions seem be a fixture in life, if that’s not too much of a contradiction in terms πŸ™‚ I, too, find writing helpful to process my life. I haven’t read many of your posts, but I just looked at the one categorized C. S. Lewis: hope the new job is working out well!


  2. Hi, I would like to send you an email re guest posts. I would like to ask you if you would write guest posts on my blog on a regular base. Let me know what you think and if you are interested, where I can send further info to. Cheers πŸ™‚

  4. I’ve nominated you for Versatile Blogger.

    • Hey Carol, Thank you for nominating me for two awards! Wow, I appreciate you thinking of me and wanting to share the awards and introduction to new blogs. Right now I am working on writing a book, and trying to stay focused (it’s more fun to write blog posts that get immediate feedback than work on something bigger, but I’m trying to write this book on life-long learning/homeschooling reflections.), so I am not going to accept these awards. Thanks again for thinking of me. Keep on writing!

  13. Hi, Mary! What a lovely blog you have here. I know what you mean about needing to edit posts better. Just yesterday, I realized I had a half-sentence in one of my posts. I thought I had deleted a whole paragraph, but had apparently left a few words unfinished still there. Not cool.
    Will have a looksie around here, but sure do like the ambience (?) ’round here.

    • Hey In,
      Yes, you know how it is. πŸ™‚ And then I have to remember that there’s grace (and asking for help to have someone proofread a piece.)
      Thank you for the encouragement about my blog! I like what I have seen of your blog as well. Your “About” section made me smile.
      Thanks for stopping by!


  14. Hi Mary πŸ™‚ It’s a pleasure to meet you. Thank you for the follow.


  15. I love the idea of transitions. Great perspective that we all go through transitions; sometimes they are few and far between and other times it seems like change and transition come fast and furious, sometimes even blindsiding us.
