Family Trees

One of the jewels of the trip was found in an unlikely place. I am going to take you back to our friend Thuy’s home in San Leon, Texas. While there Jeff Shinabarger, and I had the pleasure of interviewing Thuy and her experience of Hurricane Ike. One part of the interview that keeps playing over in my mind is what encourages her family to staying in San Leon.

As you can see these trees that were planted in their front yard years ago are pretty important. When Thuy first said family tree, I thought she was referring to her family lineage. Then she nodded and right away I realized she was referring to the tall, strong trees in her front yard. These trees have endured a lot over the years. They have weathered storm after storm, and basked in the light and warmth of the sun. In a way, they are truly like family. In our lives, even after the storms blow over us, may it be trouble and hardships, and we may have our possession destroyed by disasters, ultimately we are left with family. They carry us through the hard times and laugh with us through the fun.
