Today, all posts are dedicated to Earth Day...except for, of course, the daily funnie. So, you might want to come back back, as I will be posting all kinds of treasures that I find all over.
I started my day by hearing the birds- they wanted me to feed the them, so I went out, filled the feeders and noticed quite a few robins in the yard. That reminded me to grab some used dryer sheets, and the lint that I am saving separately for them, grab my brushes, and take it all outside.
As I shredded the dryer sheets, into fine fly away pieces, same with the lint...I listed in my mind all that I am grateful for. I do that every morning, but this morning, as I let the sun shine on me, feeling the warmth of sun, listening to birds sing and chirp- I concentrated on Mama Earth and all she has given me...and more importantly- how I can preserve it for future generations to come.
Then I watched as the robins grabbed the pieces of dryer sheets and the, knowing they are going to use that to line a nest of their own. I cleaned out the brushes, letting the hair fly to the wind...See? My gray hair IS good for something other then making me shriek when I look in the mirror! The chickadees are partial to the hair for their nests.
And as I lifted my face to the sun, I thanked God for another day and went on with my appreciation list in my mind...It's such a great way to start the day!
Happy Earth Day everyone!
What are you going to do to celebrate it?
