I am a ten-year survivor of domestic violence and have three-years in recovery from the relationship and mental illness. Throughout the journey I have taught myself papercrafts as a manner of healthy therapy for the raw nerves sometimes involved. My current project is an 8 x 8 album about TREES, and the ways that they have inspired me along this healing journey.
Below is the story of the TROUBLE TREE, written by an anonymous person:
I have used this Trouble Tree many times, many ways, such as a person who prays the Serenity Prayer. My life-long love of these "kings of nature" that are given to us by our Higher Power has been both an inspiration and a teacher. One should be patient, one should bend with the winds, one should have good roots. Every year we should have new growth, but we should never deny our old growth.
I hope you enjoy my posts!!
