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!
