Cheri, over at Scrap Dreams, is running a year long challenge focused on acts of kindness. This week, she's focusing on being kind to the earth through planting trees. In that spirit, I wanted to share the story of this wonderful woman. I often see her walking her dog, Lady, in the park when I walk to work. She's hunched and grey, probably in her 80's, but she walks with boundless energy and a bright smile. And every spring, she tends a plot of earth in the corner of the public park. She plants flowers. Trims them. Waters them. And every time I see her, my faith in humanity take an uptick. I think she's awesome. And I think the world would be a better place if we were all just a little bit more like her. Have a great weekend!
