This birch tree was in my front yard in Utah. It is hard to tell at first glance, but two of the tree’s branches grew together and then separated again. In my yard in CA, I have a redwood tree that became two trees. They share roots and a trunk, but rise close to 100 feet separately.
I think that is how we grow too. Sometimes we need to check back with where we have been before we are ready to grow again up into the sky.
