Several months ago I helped a friend transplant a tree. It would have been cut down if we hadn't moved it, so we dug it up and replanted it in a new place. We weren't sure if it would survive, but it would have died anyway, so it was worth the risk.
The tree has survived the winter, and has continued to grow. I have hope that it will live for a long time in its new place, providing shade and oxygen and beauty.
That day back in September was a rather bleak sort of day so I was thinking about the end of the world. A friend of mine had called with the worst sort of news. And while not everything is better for my friend, he has survived the bleak winter, and has continued to grow. I have hope that he will continue for a long time as well.
