To Touch a Soul

Nature has a way to reach into one's very soul if we take the time to appreciate it.

I have always been a nature lover. Things changed dramitically for me now that I am a mother. I share things with my daughter and watch the wonder in her eyes as she sees her first snowfall, or laughs at a raccoon that has climbed onto our sundeck to peek inside the living room at us. There are so many things I still have to show her. How on a bad day, we can stop and watch the wildlife at its everyday antics. Nature never fails to bring a smile to my face. Someday I hope my daughter can have the same experiences teaching her child, and that child teaching its own. God gave us a precious gift when he gave us the world. It is up to us to preserve and share it with our children and granchildren. The children of the future are my concern now because they cannot come here and plead for our help. The animals have been given no human voice to plead for survival. I feel that is my responsibility to do what I can for them because I can speak out.
