Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
There is always something to be thankful for.
He who plants a tree, plants hope
I am truly very thankful for the shade I have here at my house. There is hardly a minute I’m not in the shade all day long. The trees are beautiful to look at and I’m sure they save me money in the amount I spend on air conditioning too.
I might have more sun in the spring before the trees leaf and in the fall when the trees have shed their leaves, but that is something to be thankful for too as the sun warms everything.
Trees clean our air too. Trees produce oxygen, intercept airborne particulates and reduce smog. And did I mention they are beautiful look at. Trees can soothe and relax us. There is nothing quite so restful as sitting in the shade and watching a summer breeze blowing the leaves.
We can’t really put a price tag on a trees. Each year they grow more and more priceless.
The wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
