Are you a Tree Hugger? March 16, 2012

So you are the kind of person that tries to be eco friendly.  You use your own bags at the grocery store, recycle and try to be a nice person. I know people joke about being a “Treehugger”  but have you actually ever done it before?   Have you ever actually gotten up close, wrapped your arms and maybe a leg too, around a tree?    I have since I was little.  I still do it to this day.  There is something amazing about feeling the energy, strength and love of a tree.  To feel their bark, branches, leaves is just incredible.  They are all different and all powerful. One of my favorite places to hug a tree is in the Redwood Forest in California.  My oh my, those trees are amazing!

I used to climb trees all the time.  I remember how sad I was when I was in college and climbed the tree in the front of the house that my friends and I had just rented.  A gangster had tagged the tree in the branches.  I guess the good thing was at least they were hugging a tree to get that high but I was so sad that someone did that do the tree.  I don’t climb in the trees nearly as much as I should anymore but it makes me happy to hear my younger children talk about their adventures of climbing a tree.  My son has a favorite in the back yard that he calls his special place.  What an amazing spot for him to be.  I hope you all have a special spot to hug a tree.

A friend had this on their facebook and I just had to share it with all of you…my tree hugging friends!
