I have to be completely honest, I was kind of mad when I got these trees in their memory. It wasn't toward the people who thought of us in such a generous way, it was more at life and the world. I thought, "I'm getting a tree instead of my babies? What kind of world is this?"
I would still of course rather have Reese and Scotlyn here with me, but I'm a little more rational about it. I now (and knew I would eventually) appreciate the beauty I have here with me to remind me of them and I am so thankful for the special people in our lives who have brought us these everlasting memories!
