I know what you're thinking. You're thinking about that book by Shel Silverstein. It's true that's a good book, but this "giving tree" is way better. It's a gift from my most wonderful sister and friend.
Here's how it works—whenever your spirit is droopy, pick one of the leaves and read the gift of words on it. It will brighten your day and possibly make you cry (happy tears).
Here's my beautiful tree on my favorite shelf.
You can't see from the picture what's written on the leaves. Here are a couple of examples from my tree —"I love you more than Ben & Jerry's" – "Motherhood suits you" – "You were born to sing."
My tree makes me smile. Thanks, seester!
And lookout my blogging friends. You just might be getting your own giving tree.
