Your relationship is like a beautiful fruit tree
When it is happy and healthy, delicious fruits ripen to give you pleasure
People look longingly upon this amazing tree
Everyone would love to have one just like it.
Many people, especially those who haven’t tried to grow one
Think it must be pretty easy to do
Stick it in the ground, water every now and again and
Within no time they’ll be relishing the fruits it provides them.
Sometimes, this might be the case
Most times, it is merely the dream of those that
Haven’t put in the endless labor to nurture and grow
Something so precious, fragile and life-giving.
This tree is forever under assault from elements
Which are mostly out of your control
Just managing a life together, a family or business
Can deplete your reserves of patience and understanding.
Making time to feed, water and prune is the easy part
Extreme stressors like insects and disease are always a possibility
Taking care of our own needs sometimes are hard enough
But taking care of our relationship often is the first to go.
What does it take for a relationship tree to bear sweet fruits?
Tending to the heartfelt needs of one another, listening first:
Empathy and compassion for both of us
Simple connections and regular pleasure and shared fun are a must.
Learning how to forgive the missteps and hurts that we cause one another
Working together with kindness and goodwill to change what needs changing
Remembering often all of the goodness and beauty in each other
Opening our hearts to receive the love and best intentions of our beloved.
You can live under the shade of such a magical tree
It can provide you with the loving nourishment you desire
With skill, together, over time and sometimes with the help of a master gardener
You can definitely grow a monumental testimony to your love in action.
