There’s Always Something to do for Others


Doing for others is so empowering, for children as well as adults. We were a Camp Fire Boys & Girls family. A big part of my children’s growing up was closely tied to “The Law of Camp Fire”…give service, seek beauty, pursue knowledge, be trustworthy, be healthy… I’m sure there was more but that’s what I remember. Nature and service is where we put our emphasis. We went on litter hikes, planted flowers and trees, made gifts for seniors and veterans, worked with the volunteer center and at our schools…there is always something to do for others.

Well, I found a service project I chose to take on and have decided to include my Yoga Kids. I have volunteered to plant and maintain the flower pots on the front porch entry of the Sebastopol Community Center Annex. I will fill the pots with fresh soil and bring plants from my yard to revive the pots. I will also bring some flowering plants for the Yoga Kids to plant as well. I will get the planting started and probably bring the flowers for the kids to plant the second or third week of this yoga session. Even if your kids aren’t currently enrolled in yoga they are welcome to come check out the planters and look for a fun little secret hidden in the foliage. I’m telling all the kids that they can help water anytime they are there by just pouring a little water into the pots.
