My Weeping Willow Tree
A lifetime ago there was a little girl. This girl had a magical place she went to on almost a daily basis. In the middle of the child's family's yard stood a really large weeping willow tree.
It had long flowing leaves the color of spring green. The leaves reach to the sky and fell to the ground beneath your feet.
A haven for a small child. Inside you could set and cool off on a hot summer day. At night you could look up to the sky and see the stars and moon. Thinking what it would be like to visit another galaxy. Or fly away to meet the man in the moon. Time was spent chasing fireflies and giggling .
It was a place where many books were read. Dreams were dreamt. Plans were made for many adventures. Sometimes tears were shed as life threw it's disappointments . It was a hiding place when one needed a refuge. A place to lie beneath and talk with friends.
Yes this was a special place for a child to grow and enjoy childhood. It was a blissful, happy place.
This old tree is gone now. The sweet happy memories of my childhood are forever etched in the recesses of my mind.
Happy Mother's Day to my Mom, Daughters, Daughter-in-law and to each of my friends.
May you spend the day with those you love. Laughter, fun and joy fill your days. Blessings overflowing come to you and yours!!!
