The Miracle of Trees

It's my birthday today!

My friend Elizabeth gave me a wonderful gift: a gift card from Trees For Life International. The gift will help people in the developing world plant trees. Two of my favorite causes - the environment and social justice - coming together.

The trees will provide food and shade, as well as help reduce environmental devastation caused by erosion and habitat loss.

Trees are so amazing. They help filter water, reduce carbon dioxide, and cool our planet. They improve air, water, and soil quality. I'm so blessed to have a friend like Elizabeth who gave me a gift that will do so much for the earth and for others.

Belated happy birthday, Cat! Hope you had a wonderful day :) May this year be your best year yet.

I've been out of touch with blogging, but now intend to be back on a bit more regularly. I've missed it. I very much enjoy reading your updates. Hope you're keeping well :) I'm still knitting away :)
