Everyday I get an inspiration email from a web site called http://www.tut.com. I received the quote below on January 19, 2015. I could not have expressed it any better.
“There once was a time in our planet’s history, when the earth was truly a paradise. The diversity of life was as mind blowing as it was spectacular. Flowers sprang up in impossible places. Birds and their songs filled the air over every continent. Snow, fog, showers, or sunshine added sometimes shocking and unexpected beauty to every setting. Animals were loved as family members. And complete strangers smiled and waved at one another, as it was everyone’s natural instinct to be kind, to give, and to love.”
