I am unbelievably emotional about losing this tree. It has probably been here as long as anyone has owned this land. We've been friends since we moved here in 1989. Our children and our Grandchildren had a rope swing on it. I feel like a sentinel has left us, our very own Groot (Guardians of the galaxy movie). We have already lost so many trees to the Emerald ash borer, but this one was special. When it hit the ground, it snapped many of the small trees around her.
I have started a knit along at church called knit the sky. It is a conceptual knitting project designed by Lea Redmond of Leaf cutter designs.
I have wanted to try this for some time. I think the idea of intentionally noticing, and in my case, feeling grateful for the sky and all of God's beauty, will be good for the soul. I am so blessed, but I am often caught up in the mundane, and fail to truly appreciate the bigger picture.
