The farm lady realized one day that the little pine tree's branches were drooping more than usual, and he didn't seem as bright in color as normal. It was close to Christmas--a time that always meant family and loved ones to the farm lady. Unfortunately, most of her family was away. Then she had an idea. Why not turn her "Snoopy Tree" into a Christmas tree, with tiny photos of all those she had loved over the years? Wouldn't that be fun? And, a great way to remember others.
Oh! That little pine tree felt so important! He was so honored to hold her family in his branches. He straightened up and began to glow again. When she added bright red ornaments and fluffy cotton bolls, he felt like he was the most important tree in the whole farm. He wasn't a Snoopy Tree anymore. He was a "Family Tree" in the truest sense. He was special! He belonged!
The farm lady just stood back and smiled. Her family was Home For Christmas once again. . .
