My Late Earth Day Post

Earth Day.
Every single tangible thing that we have
comes from the earth.
And that got me thinking:
What is it that our own little 3 acres of earth
give to us? 


How about in alphabetical form?
No, seriously--don't roll your eyes at me!
I think it makes you think harder to find things
you just might overlook and the whole point of this
exercise is to realize how much we've been given.
Try it.
