Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you. Today is the first day of daylight savings time where we turn the clocks ahead one hour and lose an hour. I don’t know about you, but I hate daylight savings time. It messes me up for a whole week. I don’t sleep well and that makes me cranky.
On a more positive note, my pinched nerve is so much better. I’m going to try to make it through the day without any muscle relaxers or anti-inflammatory meds. My index finger on my left hand is still numb, but at least I can still type.
But enough about that. Today, I’d like to talk about taking care of our planet. We humans sure have made a mess of things. From depleting our rain forests to the great garbage pile in the ocean, we should be ashamed of ourselves.
Why don’t we get smart and create a global organization whose primary purpose is to clean up the mess we’ve created? That way every nation would have to be involved. I wonder if that would help get rid of the wars? I mean if we’re all working toward the same goal, wouldn’t we have to get along?
Just like the trees in the forest cooperate with the fungi in the soil, we could cooperate with other countries and clean up our planet. Wouldn’t that be something?
I know, I’m being idealistic, but sometimes the answer really is that simple. If we don’t do something soon, future generations are going to be in trouble. It all starts with the forests and the oceans. They are the things keeping our earth alive. Along with our pollinators, let’s not forget the bees.
The bees keep our forests and flowerbeds growing. Isn’t it interesting that the health of the planet depends on such a tiny insect? Let’s do our part this spring and plant flowers so the bees have plenty of sources to collect their pollen. That’s one small thing we can do right now for our planet.
How about you do you have any ideas on how to keep our earth healthy? Leave a comment! I’d love to hear from you!

I’m glad your pinched nerve is doing better! That’s wonderful.
One of the small things I do to protect the earth is use reusable shopping bags as much as I can. I even have several small little mesh ones to put produce in instead of using the disposable plastic ones.
When I do need to use plastic shopping bags, I always reuse them as a liners for my trash cans afterwards.
Good for you! We reuse our plastic bags as well. We’re trying to cut down on plastic, but sometimes it’s hard because it’s so convenient. But that is one small thing we can do to help the earth and if a lot of people start doing it. Who knows what can happen. Thanks for stopping by, Lydia! I appreciate your support.
So happy you’re feeling better, Lisa. Great post on how we can do our part to keep Mother Earth healthy. We’re always adding flowers to our gardens, and I no longer use plaster water bottles. Every little choice helps to make this world better. Cheers, girlfriend!
Thanks for stopping by, Sharon! I appreciate your support, and I hope you sold many books over the weekend! 🙂
