green trees

Whenever one of us grand kids would ask for something – candy, a yo-yo, legos, a cabbage patch doll – our grandparents would tell us, “Money doesn’t grow on trees, you know.”

Except for that one day that it did.

My grandfather had a beautiful garden beside their house (they also had apple and pear trees and a grape arbor). One day, after church, he took us around the garden.

Was that…a dollar bill amongst the basil? It was! And another by the tomatoes.

I collected a fistful of dollars that day. I ran back to the house to show my grandmother who couldn’t stop smiling.’

Grandparents rock.
