A Healing Journey Through PTSD, Anxiety, and Depression One Picture At A Time

Secrets of the Giving Tree

I have mentioned before our “Giving Tree” is diseased and dying.  Today I went out and took a picture of a knot whole.  I remember well the limb that used to come out of this knot.  It was my position to sit as a child, straddling it.  This very spot was where most of my adventure played out.   I was very said for my tree.  Today,  I realized that it must be the heart of the tree.  You will understand why.

As I leaned in closer to take pictures I saw a pecan and thought that is the neatest thing in the world.  Squirrels are using the tree as a secret hide away to store food.

The nut tucked is way in the back so you could not see it in this picture.  When I looked at the next image on the screen my eyes filled with tears.

Safe in the giving tree 6-7What I thought was a pecan, was not a pecan at all.  It was a tiny bird egg.  Yes, safe in the Giving Tree protected from harm.  Rest safe little one.  Your mom chose wisely. You have very special first home.

  1. How special!!!! The tree is giving the space where it once had a limb into a home for new baby birds! I loved reading this! Thanks!

  2. The Giving Tree always makes me want to cry when I read it. It is one of my favorite books to read to children. A must have book for any family!
