Today is National Arbor Day. I am and always have been a lover of trees, oaks are my favorites.
At www.arborday.org they have a motto, "We inspire people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees."
I became aware of this organization when I was looking for a sympathy card and through them I found the perfect card. For every card they plant a tree and my heart leaped for joy. What better way to send your feelings. To say to the person who lost a loved one, "we have planted a tree in honor of your lost loved one."
We have sent these cards for over 14 years and my heart always feels a burst of sunshine. There are other organizations that do the same thing. I love each and every one of them for planting a tree.
I am an old soul that loves trees, maybe I was an Ent in a former life :)
