I was on facebook last night, and an acquaintance posted a picture of her favorite tree.
I looked at the tree and immediately messaged back. "Is this tree located on the road by the Rouse?" She responded, "Yes."
It's funny. This is my favorite tree too.
I knew this tree as a young girl on a school bus. 40+ years ago, and it symbolized something then. All these years later, it continues to symbolize something to me, something different but just as relevant to my heart.
I never knew anyone with a favorite tree before. Now I do. We've got thousands of trees here in our woods. How strange that her favorite tree would be my favorite tree.
