1. Make a list of all the people who support you. This list might include relatives, caregivers, friends, coaches, teachers, and neighbors. It could also include animals. Do you have a favorite piece of music, art, or poem, or a place in nature where you like to spend time? Add all of these to the roots of your tree.
2. Write a letter to someone on this list and let that person know that you are thinking of him or her and thank him or her for supporting you.
3. Create a calendar for important dates such as birthdays, anniversaries, and other celebrations of your supporters. This will help you remember these dates every year.
4. Send an E-Card to your supporters on those special days.
5. Read: Reason, Season, or Lifetime Friends and reflect on the relationships in your life.
6. Read Dr. Jane’s scrapbook about her childhood roots.
