THE GIVING TREE: STRIPPED OF EVERYTHING BUT STILL HAPPY

What a beautiful post…reminds me of my dad taking care of my mom at home the last years of her life…

The Flaming Herald

This is truly a story for the heart, so you may want to read it in a place where you are free to cry.

There was a song written by Neil Young that I used to love to hear as a young man. Some of you in my age group may remember it as well. It’s lyrics always touched me deeply.

  • Old man take a look at my life
  • I’m a lot like you were
  • I need someone to love me
  • The whole day through
  • Ah, one look in my eyes
  • And you can tell that’s true.

Now as an older man, caring for my aged parents in the final sunset of their lives, making a minor change to the lyrics seems more appropriate and meaningful. I know my Dad would sing it this way:

  • Young man take a look at my life
  • I’m a lot like you’ll be
  • I need someone to love me
