I love this, I wept.
Jim Reeves

How very beautiful, thank you (i’ve read this backwards, so will read the story and not answer yet but have always dearly loved how trees reach up and stand firm at the same time. Also, my neighbor was speaking of people who don’t say thank you as rude, and our son has had a hard time with this, but we know he’s grateful and i would never shame him as i was shamed.)

Like what you read? Give Lori McCray a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
