This is what we saw as we drove up the driveway after a trip to town tonight.
I was just sick. This was my absolute favorite tree on our whole 32 acres. It was such a beautifully shaped round tree. We think it was a Box Elder. I used to sit under it on hot days with a cold drink, just enjoying it's shade. I took pictures of our kids under it. The kids climbed it and we had swings hanging from it.
Tonight I am sad. But I am also thankful. Less than 2 weeks ago we had Tyler's youth group here from the church. They sat under this tree and talked and laughed. They swung from the swings. I thank God the limb did not fall on them.
