"Grandma, take us out to where those big maples trees are." That was the request from Max and Finn this morning.

"You will need to have shoes and long pants. There's poison ivy out there and we might have to leave the trail," I replied.

"You mean we can go bushwhacking?"

"Yep, that's what we'll do."

Max found the hiking stick that he likes for being out and about at the lake. They both grabbed waterproof shoes and off we went, looking for the two big maple trees at the end of the trail through the woods.

There are some wonderful gifts that come in the days between the death of a loved one and the visitation and celebration times. Days that are scheduled for travel and preparation turn into times of conversation, shared meals, and, yes, bushwhacking with your grandmother through the cedar woods to the big maples.
