Truly, I love what I do. I love writing this blog. I love sharing ideas and information. I love when I feel as though I’ve made a difference.
Today, especially, I feel incredibly accomplished.
(If you don’t mind me sharing for a moment…) It started yesterday with collecting drink pouches for the “Drink Pouch Brigade” at our children’s school. I loved seeing all the kids arrive with bags filled with empty drink pouches so we could turn them over to Terracycle for some fantastic upcycling.
In the afternoon I was able to answer some questions from readers and, although the communication was one-on-one, I know I “helped” and that felt good.
Then that evening, I helped our daughter’s Girl Scout/Brownies Troop make some Eco-Friendly Multi-Purpose Cleaner so they could work toward earning their Eco-Badge. We gave them the recipe and even cut up old t-shirts to make cleaning rags! We spent some more time looking through National Geographic Kids “Human Footprint” and talking about recycling, reusing, reducing and repurposing. Seeing them grasp the concept of the impact we all have on the planet and the simple things we can do to make a difference was wonderful… and amazing… and humbling. Afterall, they are the next generation following in our “footprint” (that we hope they’ll make even smaller and smaller!).
And finally, I am thrilled… THRILLED(!) to have been nominated as a Top 25 Eco-Friendly Mom by Circle of Moms. My readers, followers and subscribers have been so amazingly supportive and, again, I am humbled.
I truly love what I do. I hope to make a difference and, today especially, it appears that I have.
If you love what I do also and would like to share a “click” of support, I’m not above asking for your vote of approval. Just click here, cast your vote, and let them know.
I’m so very honored by this recognition and yes … again … I truly love what I do and I appreciate everyone who’s on this journey with me!
