Day 44 - Trees grow up, right?

Out walking today this tree caught our eye. Maybe the tree stands out because it is different from most. We are all used to seeing tree branches reach for the sky while this one seems to be reaching for its roots. I may be stretching it a bit but this tree says to me, "It's okay to be different. That's what makes the world such a wonderful place." People often fear or dislike that which is different or out of the ordinary. I think this tree reminds us to embrace difference and learn from it.

And sometimes we are weighed down with the burdens of life. This tree will get a "pick-me-up" when the snow eases its grip.
