...and the tree was happy.

The Giving Tree is one of my all-time favorite books. 

I read it to the boys often when they were little and couldn't hardly get through it without getting choked up. 

I miss those days...nice warm bubble baths full of floaty toys, sweet little pj's covered in dinosaurs or cars and trucks, little boy hair cuts perfectly combed over to the side...then into the trundle bed they would go...ready for a bedtime story. 

Isn't it funny to think that life felt busy and hard at times back then? 

If I knew then what I know now, right?

That story used to kind of upset me as a child. Now it makes me bawl.

One of my all time favorite children's stories. The tree reminds me of Jesus.
