FAMILY TREE OF LIFE
A tree, to me, represents not just a part of the flora growing on this Earth, it also, metaphorically, represents family: the trees of life. For as a tree holds so many seeds, so to through generations does family. Some seeds stay with the trunk, some drift off, some die away, that is the evolution of life but all are still connected to the trunk of the tree through the many seeds that are spread throughout the globe, carried by birds or drifting on the wind, as to do family members stay, drift or die to evolve in their eternal life.
Family members are like the stars of light shining through just like this tree with its star of sunshine glowing through its fork. Love your family always whether they stay, drift or pass over as you are a piece of their light and sunshine just as the generations still to come are a piece of sunshine and light of those moved on as well as via you as your seeds are spread throughout the globe all starting from the initial, the first, seed of being on the Family Tree Of Life.
