See that cute little spruce evergreen whatever it is tree? It’s been growing for a couple of years.
I know we should take it down. But I just can’t. I love it.
Whenever I look out the back door or sit on the back deck I see it and it just reminds me that things can grow where you least expect them to grow. Obviously we did not plant this little guy. A seed got dropped there from some pine cone or a squirrel transported it and then it found a home and a safe place to grow.
Last December I actually put a few Christmas ornaments on it and it made me smile even more when I looked out and saw that little tree all ready for the holiday.
It reminds me of that phrase ” Bloom Where You are Planted”. It’s a good phrase to remember and I have focused on it over the years when we have moved. A positive attitude and outlook can make the difference and I have always somehow managed to have those. So when I look at that little tree I think of how often people are able to just simply bloom where they are and am grateful for that. Maybe I will just keep that tree there as a reminder that I can bloom wherever I am. What about you?
And that bent shepherd’s hook ? Thanks to our local bears I need to take that to the dump.
