Memories: Loving the Earth

I mentioned before that Mother Hen loved the Earth and its natural beauty. I just heard a story about her that I wanted to share:

When Mother Hen was little she found a start from a maple tree. She brought it home and planted it in the front yard of the family’s ramshackle little house. Apparently that sucker grew like crazy. The last time a family member drove by, the tree is not only there, but fully grown and majestic.

What a wonderful legacy for a wonderful person. Bringing another aspect of beauty to the planet she loved.

Some day I need to see about planting a tree in her memory. She would like that.
