A long time ago, there was a huge tree.
It loved a little boy very much, the boy loved to come and play around it everyday.

He climbed to the treetop.
Ate the apples.

Take a nap under the shadow.
He loved the tree, the tree was so happy.

Time went by....
One day, the boy come back to the tree. The tree said "come and play with me".

"I am no longer o kid, I do not play around a tree anymore". "I want toys. I need money to buy them".
"Sorry but I do not have money...but you can pick all my apples and sell them. So you will have money".
The boy was so excited. He grabbed all the apples on the tree and left happily. The tree was happy.

The boy never come back after picked the apples. The tree was sad.
One day, the boy who now turned into a man returned and the tree was excited. " Come and play with me" the tree said.

"I do not have time to play. I have to work for my family. We need o house for shelter. Can you help me?"
"Sorry but I do not have any house. But you can chop off my branches to build your house."

So the man cut all the branches of the tree and left happily.
The tree was glad to see him happy but the man never came back since then.
The tree was again lonely and sad

One hot summer day, the man returned and the tree was delighted. "Come ang play with me" the tree said.
"I am getting old. I want to sailing to relax myself. Can you give me a boat?" said the man.

"Use my trunk to build your boat." the tree said. "You can sail far away and be happy."
So the man cut the tree trunk to make a boat. he went sailing and never showed up for a long time.

Finally, the man returned after many years. " Sorry my boy. But i do not have anything for you anymore. No more apples for you" the tree said.
"No problem. I do not have any teeth to bite" the man replied.
"I really cannot give you anything...the only thing left is my dying roots" the tree said with tears.
"I do not need much now, just a place to rest. I am tired after all these years" the man replied.

 "Good! Old tree roots are the best place to lean on and reSt. Come, come sit down with me and rest."

Everybody has an apple tree in his life.
And its your Parents  !!!

No matter how busy you are, share some time with parents!
