Words of consolation for a lonely, leafless tree

Just weeks ago you glowed with vibrant autumn splendor. But now everyone’s attention has turned to other trees, namely those adorned with bright holiday lights.

Remember, though, that “for everything there is a season.” This is your season of dormancy, a time for rest, recovery, and healing.

Then, in spring, new life will again burst forth and birds will sing from your branches.

In summer, picnickers will again sit in your shade as sailboats float gently by.

And in fall, photographers will again admire your vibrant colors as they capture your breathtaking beauty.

But for now, be patient. Stand tall. And know that brighter, warmer days lie ahead.
