Sprouting New Branches
A tree has many components, the trunk, the leaves, the roots, the branches. All are different in purpose but equal in value and equal in contributing to the overall beauty and majesty of the tree. A good reason why a tree is used to describe relations and bloodlines. The Family Tree. And mine is ever-growing!
I am delighted to say that my tree has a new branch - my new sister Karen and I have began communications - and we are now connected via FB. :)
Little by little, everything and everyone is slowly coming together. And my prayers are being answered.
How wonderful to be given the opportunity to see where I come from - my other half. To get to know the siblings I did not grow up with. Did we miss out on a lot? Absolutely. Do we have catching up to do? Absolutely. But now as adults, and mothers ... I think - hope - that we bring to the table a maturity, which may not have been present had all of this came to pass when we were younger. Perhaps yet another blessing.
We also share a mutual bond. Although my new sisters did grow up with our father .... we grew up without one another. So, I am certain that the newness of this situation is just as exciting for them as it is for me. At least I hope so! And why not? I am, awesome! (LOL)
How fortunate are we that our blessings continue to multiply....
