Never understood why the old oak tree? lol Sorry to say all the oak leaves are falling off those trees today. There is nothing like an oak leaf shape. When I was little my Mom would go out and pick up little oak leaves and big oak leaves. Then we would bring them inside and put a piece of wax paper over top the leaf (my mother had some strange obsession with wax paper…I never used the stuff in my life time…lol) Then put a sheet of white paper on top then color rubbing the side of a crayon. You would trace a beautiful leaf print this way.
Oak trees remind me of strong- I had to be strong with a yellow ribbon tied around it waiting for my 2 boys to return from Irag and Afganistan. Tough times…times of strength. But they have returned. Like the oak leaf they have fallen from the tree and are blowing where the winds take them. I am not sad…I am happy for them.
