When my daughter was in grade school one day she brought home 4 tiny twigs.

but with a hope for the future

I got a spade and planted them in our backyard.

Over the years an accident with the lawnmower and poor soil brought an end to three of them.

It grew crooked and very slowly.

In the end it looked more like a fat bush than a tree.

The lower branches were becoming bare.

Last summer I did my best to save it by feeding it a lot of fertilizer but to no avail.

This morning I went out and looked at it again.
今天早上,我出门的彩票时候又看彩金它一次

I was deciding on whether it would be better to just cut it down.

It sure would make mowing the lawn easier

and I would no longer have to watch it slowly decay .

As I walked over to take a closer look at it, however,

I smiled when I looked at it

and decided that maybe this old tree had some life and usefulness left in it yet.

but it was still giving a bird a home

and oxygen to this world.
