When I went to check on the egg in the Giving Tree I heard, click, click, click. I thought it was the egg hatching, so I took a quick picture with my Iphone.
Nope, not the eggs hatching. I noticed it was Mama, telling me to go away.
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.
What 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.
