Whether it is winter, spring, summer or fall, it is always nice to wake up to fresh air and clean surroundings. I have clean air to breathe and fresh water to drink. Life is good.

Life can be better, though. Life can be better if we are not worried about whether there will be enough water for our children to drink. Life can be better if we know that there will be enough trees for our children to play around and produce enough oxygen for all of us to breathe. Life can be better if there are no plastics floating in the ocean, poisoning the fish that we eat and polluting our waters.

I like to think that I am doing my part to making sure that there is enough of the world that I enjoy today for my children and their children to enjoy as well. I am grateful for what Mother Earth has given and continuously giving me, but I also want to be able to give back in the hopes that Mother Earth will be nice to my children and their children, as well.

Together, we can do a lot to help Mother Earth and allow her to give back to us and our children. It does not have to be a big gesture. Just a small gesture from someone who is grateful. What about you, how grateful are you?
