Have ya ever seen the rings on a tree? Sure ya have!
And seen sap from various trees? Sure ya have!
As ya know, those tree rings tells ya how old that tree is & the sap is its life's blood or sometimes tears.
When I hear: Auld Lang Syne, I tear up and those tears run down my cheeks. Maybe you do the same.
Been doing a lot of that today!
So the reason I mentioned tree rings & their sap is like each of us.
We have our years behind us & (hopefully) many more ahead and our tears are of hope, that the new year doesn't cut too deep and we can grow stronger & taller with how we meet each day.
Just my way of seeing things!
Happy New Year Folks & Many More
