Sad Drive Home

I turned on to the main street my house sits on and was instantly saddened. I knew this day was coming; I just wasn’t prepared for it to be so soon. A long line of trees line my street or rather used to line my street. Ever since the city started this weird maintenance, or whatever they want to call it, project I knew eventually I’d come home to very few trees down the road. 😥 I’m a nature lover and am always sad when something or someone destroys nature even if nature destroys itself. Anyway, so I drove on to my main road and saw at least 7 or 8 tree stumps with bright orange Xs on them. The trees were no longer standing and no longer waving their bright green foliage. I knew this day was coming, but I didn’t know it would be so soon. 😥 Just 4 tree stumps away is my oak tree that will soon be joining them. I don’t want to see it leave. It’s been there at least as long as I have (35 years). It doesn’t help knowing that they will plant new trees in the wake of all this; I suppose it wouldn’t hurt so bad if I knew that these trees were maybe dying or not in good health. As is most of these trees are in their prime. It reminds me of pulling the plug on someone who is on life-support. Yes, we all were able to pick what tree or trees we want replaced, but that’s still disheartening to me. (We picked a tulip tree if anyone’s curious.) So with this thunderstorm that’s coming tonight, and more in the future, I fear this means my yard will wash away and others, too. I mean these trees were put here for a reason, to prevent soil erosion. Anyway, thought I’d just share what’s on my mind and remind  you all to take time to enjoy nature in all its many forms because you never know when it won’t be there (or you won’t be there).

Love and prayers, as always! ❤
