FOR YOU: Where Am I Essential?

On a recent walk, I found some beautiful treasures through leaf skeletons.

During the winter months, the outer green layer of these leaves is removed. What is left behind is the vein network of what once provided food and water to the leaf's living cells. The lasting treasure is a striking, elegant, intricate design showcasing the very essence of how that leaf lived.

In the MAR Giveaway, three questions were asked about our own vein network of life.

Thank you for the answers shared. Your responses brought joy to my heart. Like these leaves, we each bring our own beauty and essential contributions that make this world a better place. Here are just some of the delicate, intricate, and elegant insights.

Q: You have unique gifts, abilities, and stewardship. Celebrate where your contributions have meaning. Where are you essential?
