Earth Day....Celebrate and Give Back




Since today is Earth Day I wanted to share a quote that I ran across

that pretty much sums up how I feel about the day and life in general!

Happy Earth Day! : "When we look at an orange tree we see that

season after season it spends its life

producing beautiful green leaves, fragrant blossoms, and sweet oranges.

These are the best things an orange tree can create and offer

to the world.  Human beings also make offerings to the world every

moment of our daily lives, in the form of our thoughts, our speech and

our actions. We may want to offer the world the best kinds of thought,

speech, and action that we can—because they are our continuation,

whether we want it to be so or not. We can use our time wisely,

generate the energies of love, compassion, and understanding, say

beautiful things, inspire, forgive, and act to protect and help the

Earth and each other. In this way, we can ensure a beautiful

continuation." Thich Nhat Hanh....







So take some time today in honor of Earth day and make sure you are doing

everything within your own personal power to be  responible for the space of Earth that you occupy!!



Until next time,

Jan
