Earth Day is a time for celebration, but even more important it’s a time for gratitude. Our Earth provides us with everything we need, fresh water, food, shelter supplies and even spiritual and emotional sustenance. Just think of the last time you watched the ocean’s waves roll in or saw a breathtaking sunset.
Not a day goes by that we don’t use the Earth’s resources to sustain us. The question is what are we doing to help sustain Earth? Give thanks for all we receive by giving back: plant a tree, grow a garden, rescue an injured wild animal, buy produce from local farmers, take reusable totes shopping, pick up trash, ride a bike, recycle, turn off the lights, avoid using harsh cleaning products or drink water from the tap. Doing all these little things adds up and it’s a great way to say thank you and let our precious planet know we don’t take her for granted.
