Sherri writes eloquently about the the tree in their yard that has seen their family through the years. Now it's in danger, losing a branch just as her son is starting to pack and leave for college. The parallels she draws here are incredible and the post made me weep. It made me think of Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree.
