someone bless these seeds I sow. . .

My 5 Gratefuls on this Earth Day:
1. The purple mountains majesty that I can see through my window every day. It would be hard to ever leave Utah for that reason alone. Add a sunrise (pinkset as Cameron says) and it's breathtaking.
2. The herb and flower basket that sweet mama Jodie gave me. So far I have kept it alive!
3. Peter, Paul and Mary. I made an Earth Day playlist and found lots of their stuff made the cut. This Land is Your Land, Lemon Tree, Weave Me the Sunshine, Early Morning Rain, and of course my favorite of the day, Inch By Inch. This is the weekend that Jade and I planned so long ago to go see them in California and have a girl trip. Funny how life happens when you're busy making other plans.
4. Michael Franti,
"If you love somebody, better tell them so,
you never ever know when you're gonna go,
you love them back, just give thanks,
can't keep love like money in the bank"

or
"hold to your children, hold to your children, let them know"
5.
The incredible balance and design of The Creation. From day and night, land and water, trees and plants, fish, birds and animals to man and woman and the wee ones we get a chance to help create. Doesn't the power and beauty of it all just blow you away?

Inch by inch, row by row
Someone bless these seeds I sow
Someone warm them from below
'til the rains come tumblin' down

Someone please watch over Kody and Jade until we figure out what is making him so sick.
