Day 51…. “Words of wisdom” – advice from a tree… . And thoughts of a child… And why????
Today I went to a small park next to the kinder garden to play soccer with two kids. We ended up under a big fir tree, looking out between the branches and up to top of the tree. There were a lot of several cuts in the tree were there had been low branches and resin still was running out of them. The kids wondered what that was and I tried to explain it to them. I told them it would be a bit like with us, that when we cut ourselves, or get graze we bleed and that’s how our body closes the wound so it can grow. And with the tree it’s like that, too. They were very silent and listened. They felt sorry for the tree and gently touched its bark. After a while one said quietly “So you can get hurt and the wounds grow, and then you can grow and become very big.” ❤ ❤ ❤
Have a great evening everyone!
