The Giving Tree

In the midst of this busy season, we read the book, The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.  Here's part of the conversation, at the end of the book. . .
"There's nothing left of the tree!"
"But the tree is happy.  Why is that? (My question)
"Because he was able to give the boy so much, and when you give something to someone it makes both people happy."  Truer words were never spoken! 
What a gift it is to spend my days with these children!
(On our Giving Tree are gifts we would like to give everyone in the world, here's our list of gifts . . .
a home for everyone, bunnies, food for everyone, money for the homeless, a surprise present, flowers, book, seeds to plant, Yogibos, trees, carrots, a boat, guinea pigs, pools for everyone to swim in, cats and dogs, a pig, a map for everyone so they could always find their way home, and last but not least Love.
