Today I thought- when it comes to life I feel like I just went along for the ride. It’s not the best way to reflect on your years but there it is.
My Mom’s friend planted these trees over 40 years ago.
They were scrubby looking things when she first put them in and we used to like to jump over them. We made it most of the time. At least we didn’t kill any of the trees but I think we damaged a few.
I remember Sandy used to yell from her living room window, ” Hey cut that out. I don’t want a yard full of dead trees!”
Those trees outlived the daughter of my Mom’s friend, they outlived our pets and family members.
Her house is gone, we’re all but gone but the trees are still there.
Those scrubby little trees.
