As we ran in the mountains together, we came upon a lone oak tree in the middle of nowhere. We stopped. He asked, “Do you see that oak tree?”
“I know that man who planted that over 20 years ago. Every single Saturday for a number of years, he would fill his wheel barrel with containers of water and other nutrients for the tree. Then he would begin the nearly two hour hike to feed the tree.”
The tree was alive and thriving…a stark contrast to everything in it’s surrounding.
