One of my favorite books is The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.
If you’ve read it….you are nodding right about now.
If you haven’t I’ll totally Reader’s Digest it for you.
It’s about a tree who loves a little boy with all her heart. When he is young he plays under the tree and swings from the branches and eats buckets of apples. And as he grows older he sells the apples from the tree and uses her branches to make a house and her trunk to make a boat to sail away and explore the world.
And when he is older and his travels are done, he sits on the stump and rests…..
….and returns to the tree that he loves.
“And the tree was happy.”
