"The Littlest Tree"

'
I was mezmerized by the HUGE raindrops that were splashing in frog pond.
The raindrops looked like they were DANCING!
This looked like an exciting day to me .
I love SMELLING the rain
I love LISTENING to the rain as it pitter patters and splashes!
Do you?
I was all bundled up to enjoy the winter day.
I had on my YELLOW raincoat with baby ducky buttons.

I watched the tops of the trees in the forest sway TO AND FRO, in the wind.
And then, I thought I heard something crying in the forest.
Who could be crying, I thought.
Why?
Who?
I knew I must hurry, so, quick like a bunny,
I hurried into the forest
I ran up hills
I ran through the fog
Sometimes I tripped
Sometimes I fell
But,
I knew I must HURRY!
HURRY!

As I searched and searched, my ears led me over to the little tree.
It was just a tiny tiny little tree, tiny like me.
I sat down on some twigs next to the little tree,
the tree SHIVERED in the cold.
"Little tree", I said "why are you crying"?
The little tree just SHIVERED and did not say a word.
BIG HUGE tears fell from the branches.
My eyes looked up for a minute, and then I looked through the fog.
There were no trees around.
No tall trees.
No short trees.
He was all alone.
IMMEDIATELY, I knew what was wrong.
"I know just what will make you feel better", I said to the little tree.
Little tree looked at me with searhing, QUESTIONING eyes,
AND
in an instant, I was up on all four paws kicking moss and ferns onto the little tree.
"Now you will be nice and warm", I whispered to the little tree.
And now -the biggest surprise of all, is about to happen.
I mustered all the energy I could and started digging.
Digging
Digging
Digging
FAST
FASTER
All of a sudden, I gave a big pull, and I had the little tree on my shoulder.
"Hold on- little tree, you are in for a big surprise. Your coming with me".!

Through the fog and through the forest,
I ran.
I ran and ran.
I ran home!

It was not long before we left the fog behind.
As the fog disappeared, I pointed to these magestic trees.
"This is what you will grow up to be someday, if you don't give up".
You won't give up, will you?
Now let me place you right in the nice soft ground beside these GIANT trees.
They will take care of you.
They will take care of you, just like my moms take care of me.
The sun will shine on you.
The rain drops will water you.
The tall trees will shade you when you are hot.
The birds will sing to you.
And I will visit you everyday.
I promise.

I am soooo sleepy now, that I am going to make a wish,
I will wish that my moms will come and carry me to bed.
Nitey nite my friends
love

Hi Tweedles! The little tree is so lucky that you found it. I can't imagine coming upon a tree that is crying. Poor thing!

I'm sure the little tree will grow big and strong. You will visit it every day and I will visit it when I come visit you. We will dance around it, sing to it, and water it. The little tree will one day be big and strong!

Stubby xoxo

You need a nice bath and nap after that adventure. WOW, awesome pictures. Looks like we're having similar weather. It was so foggy here last night I could hardly see out our windows. Nasty, cold, damp. I stayed in to be warm; til time to go to dinner.

Have a relaxing day, you've earned it.

Tweedles, you have such a kind and tender ♥. Our momma just knew that you would come up with a plan so the little tree would feel better - we just knew because - well - because you are TWEEDLES!
