They moved in, got their boxes unpacked, and started living life. Work everyday, pick up supper on the way home, and settle on the couch to relax for the rest of the evening. Then, wake up to repeat the cycle.
Weekends were filled with fun, adventurous outings and hours of relaxing and enjoying time together.
Soon, they began to notice there was less and less space to walk around their beautiful home and the curb appeal was disappearing (unless you consider overgrown lawn and a weed filled flower bed curb appeal.)
What went wrong?
They didn't take care of their beautiful property when they moved in and it slowly turned from a place of peace, calm, and relaxation into a slowly growing monster creating stress and overwhelm.

Nature tends to soothe my soul and help me find that peace and relaxation that is so vital to not just surviving, but thriving. The story above reminds me how vital it is to take care of our corner of the Earth--not just our home and yard, but also our community, our state parks, anywhere we can touch nature This Earth Day I find myself looking for that place in nature that can provide peace and relaxation, not stress and overwhelm
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
