Humble Alder

 Tree Wisdom Cards ~ Alder

"You Are Enough". I've seldom found that to be so, I'm often my own worst enemy. Yet a little research shows me a lot of our everyday furniture is alder based, and black alder bark has been used for centuries, it contains the anti-inflammatory salicin, which is metabolized into salicylic acid in the body. Big timber men think of alder as junk wood, but it is a backbone of the industry. 

So yes, I can see myself as alder, the backbone of my humble selfness. I've always known I'm no Sequoia... but I'm enough.
