Little a’s class made these flowers a few years ago for Earth Day!  Can you find the one she made?  Hint: She loves, loves, loves orange. Yup, the pretty one in the middle.

Blooming flowers are just one piece of nature that floods my mind when I think of Earth Day.

-rivers, lakes, oceans

-cliffs, canyons, boulders

-eagles, deer, rabbits

-flowers, grass, sand

Nature in it’s pure form.  Untouched by “us”.

Please give thanks to Mother Earth for all that she provides to us.  It’s a good day for me to reflect on my needs and my wants. I don’t need 10 pairs of shoes, I don’t need 10 jackets, I don’t need 20 pants, etc, etc, etc!  I just need to slow down, sit and realize all that I have and then I’ll realize all that I need.
