World Water Day – March 22

I know I’ve been away for a while. Big things have been going on. I’ll explain all in a later post, but not right now.

Today, on March 22, 2011, I just wanted to acknowledge that it is World Water Day. I give thanks for all the good things that water does for me, and for all the rest of us here on Earth, too.

If it weren’t for water, we wouldn’t have any coffee or milk to drink, or clothes to wear. We wouldn’t be able to do our laundry, or scrub floors or bathroom sinks. Our skin would be brittle and dry, our flowers and vegetables wouldn’t grow, and we wouldn’t have any trees for beauty, shade, or fruit. Our animal friends would all perish without water.

Come to think of it, if it weren’t for water we wouldn’t be here at all.

Thank you, water, for all your blessings. You make life both possible and wonderful.
