Story: The Woman Who Loved Trees
There once was a woman who loved trees. Lovely Oaks grew in her yard.
When she looked at the trees it reminded her of when her children were younger and how they played in and around them. This always made her smile.
But one day the trees grew sick and had to be cut down. The woman was very sad. The wood could not even be used for fire wood or the smoke would spread the sickness to other trees.
She told her daughter in spirit how sad she was and told her about all the happy memories she used to have looking at the trees. The woman wished there was some way to use the wood. This gave her daughter an idea...
Her daughter in spirit told the woman's husband her idea...
and he went to work cutting up the wood.
He made a lovely set of a table and chairs out of the wood just the right size for children. Then they were brought to the daughter's home where the neighbor children happily began to have a tea party.
The woman was happy again knowing that children were using the wood from her beloved oak trees once more.
Thank you Mum and Pop. The neighborhood children love their new table and chairs and I know that one day Panda will love them to.
