For months, only growth and happiness for the “little tyke” then something awful happened. The little thing began to slow down in its growing. At first it was small things that hindered its growth such as other creatures not being there to encourage and help and offer nourishment. It was, as I say, small at first.
Then, the little thing was left all alone for long periods of time. That’s when the little thing began to shrink in size.
A glorious day came for the little tyke when someone…someone caring began to bring nourishment, love and caring to the “growing thing.” More attention was given to its needs, guidance was given on how to grow, life lessons were offered on how to develop into a positive and caring thing and soon changes began to happen..
Then, the little thing noticed that it was growing taller, that it was changing from an ugly, unkempt thing to a beautiful piece of nature. This made the little growing thing happy and happiness made it grow even more…
It wasn’t long before the little thing was growing into a big, beautiful and wondrous creature and its Creator was becoming happier and more fulfilled!
Oh, there would be stumbling blocks along the way—ignorance, indifference, some discrimination but he would keep going, because that’s what the Creator wanted.
It seemed that nothing would derail the Creator’s plans…
Then, one bright fall day the little thing no longer had to put up with abuse and indifference from anyone, for it had become what the master planned—the most gorgeous, beautiful spruce tree in the United States and it had just been chosen to be uprooted and placed on the White House lawn, for all Americans to enjoy…
The little tree had finally arrived at its destination and was proud and happy…Oh, so happy was he!
