The Little Tree
It is very important for any parent to raise a child to be able to live an independent life, not just to survive in adverse situations, but find their strength to build on and become a giving, respected member of their community.
The little seed is taken away somewhat too soon from the loving care of her mother tree. Her wise mother was already implanting ideas for her offspring to remember when they would be in a situation where they may have to rely on their own strength and courage. The little tree keeps remembering her mother’s advice and applies it to her own situation.
In her struggle to grow and survive, she nurtures little birds by giving them a place to rest and possibly raise their own young. Besides her hardships, the little tree supports those around her which not only makes her feel a part of her surroundings but that she is living with a purpose!
