Rooted, but not standing still

Rooted, but not standing still.....
As I am tempted by the nearby orchards all beckoning me to come and pick apples a few things come to mind.  First the smell in the kitchen when I have the dehydraters filled with cut apples and the crockpot filled with homemade applebutter.  But second is the tree itself and what the familiar site can come to mean.
Our family just yesterday continued a tradition.  We planted a redbud tree in our yard.   You see we have planted a redbud at each house we have ever lived in (this one makes the 3rd).  It is truly something to return again, years later and see how it has grown.  It is also very meaningful to know that you have started something that will carry on and help provide shade on a hot day, beauty in the spring, and fresh oxygen to help make up for my families carbon footprint.  It is very grounding.
But this is also about not standing still.  Just because we are rooted, in traditions, in our small community, it doesn't mean that we aren't going somewhere, growing, evolving.  Just like us opening our General Store, the small community of Davis is growing.  The few houses that were looking for people to move in are now full and there are new members of the "family".  It is a wonderful feeling to know that we can continue to move forward even though we have roots.  And in the meantime, I will enjoy the tasty smells in my kitchen.
