Please....check this out! This is really neato!
This is the note that my Dad attached to the tree...
Please Don't Cut Me Down!
"I am not impeding traffic; I am not blocking anyone's view. There are plenty of eyesores that need to be cut down in this city, but I am not one of them. I am not just a weed. I represent a lot of things-the memory of his mom, son, mother-in-law, father-in-law of the guy who planted me-fallen soldiers and those in service who are sons and daughters of the people who decorate me-a fallen police officer-people fighting illness-hope and a lot of other things too numerous to list.
My sole purpose is to show God's love for you in a practical way. I have big roots to fill...my cousin whom used to be here made over 7400 people smile when they didn't really have much to smile about!
That is a miracle from God!
So before you fire up the chainsaw, remember I have over 7000 friends watching me. Leave me alone and let me do my job!
P.S. Don't forget to smile and say a prayer once in a while! God is watching you too!"
It is just little acts of kindness such as these that make God's world GREAT!! I love this story...
