Every year we watch our cypress tree grow and become taller and more beautiful than the year before.
Its leaves are so bright green and full but in the fall they turn orange and all fall off. That is when the cypress tree is just a bunch of branches with no leaves the tree is now naked.
Life is a lot like the cypress tree if you think about it. Each year is different some years are full of love, laughter and great memories. Other years we deal with death, heartache and pain.
Life is about experiencing every single emotion we have it’s about growing and learning about yourself as well as others.
Most of all life is about living. Never let your sorrows of today stop you from the happiness of tomorrow. Live each day to the fullest because we never know when it might be our last.
The best thing we can all do is hope each new year is better than the last and that we have so much happiness in our lives we can look past the pain.
