I’m thankful for . . . a tree with a good sense of direction

I lost an enormous blue spruce last night, probably due to the high winds. That’s the bad news. The good news is that it fell in the only possible direction it could fall and not hit my house or one of my three neighbors’ houses. If it had fallen just a few degrees another way, it would have landed right on my bedroom.

The only problem is that my entire back yard is filled with this tree. I’ll be dealing with my insurance company, but at least I’m not in the hospital. So I have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
