And the tree was happy.

  1. Oh Cat you have quoted one of my favorite authors from one of my very favorite close to my heart! A fabulous image with this quote....

  2. And now, so am I.

    Thanks for reminding me of one of my favorite books. I've got to dig our copy out and put it out where our adult children will see it. Happy Holidays!

  3. Brought a smile to my face when I read the quote:) Makes me happy looking at such a beautiful tree.

  4. Awe -

    I read that book to my kids...

    It is weird because some days I am emotional and I think it is into it diff...

    ...and somedays I think it is a little creepy and sad...and think of the takers...

  5. And the blog readers were happy. Thanks for sharing your images and for picking a great line from a great book. Most of all, thank you for sharing your talents and your friendship, Cat. :)

  6. I always wondered if Silverstein meant that ironically since she was reduced to a stump. I'm pleased to see your tree in happy bright leafed glory.

  7. Such a simple yet beautiful post. =0)

  8. You are the most inspirational person I know! Happy New Year to you and your family!


Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
