The Mighty Oak Tree

A mighty wind blew night and day,
It stole the oak tree’s leaves away,
Then snapped its boughs and pulled its bark
Until the oak was tired and stark.
But still the oak tree held its ground
While other trees fell all around

The weary wind gave up and spoke
“How can you still be standing oak?”
The oak tree said, “I know that you
Can break each branch of mine in two,
Carry every leaf away, but I have roots stretched in the earth,
Growing stronger since my birth,
You’ll never touch them, for you see,
They are the deepest part of me.
Until today I wasn’t sure
Of just how much I could endure.
But now I’ve found, with thanks to you,
I’m stronger than I ever knew.”

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my friends,

I have not written in awhile because I have been ill and oh so busy with other life issues.  I am feeling so much better and plan to get back to blogging shortly.  When I do I will update you on what has been going on in my life.
