I’s celebration is for I LOVE MY SISTER & BROTHER, It’s NATIONAL SIBLING DAY

Tuesday, April 10th: I’s celebration is for I LOVE MY SISTER & BROTHER, It’s NATIONAL SIBLING DAY. Today recognizes the bond between siblings for the special gift it is. Celebrate by hugging, honoring and enjoying your siblings; those who are with us still and honoring the memory those who have passed before us.

So of course, since one of the advantages of writing a blog is that you can write whatever you want … this celebration was picked for my sister Sue, my brother Chuck, and my brother Butch (Luther) who passed much too young from an auto accident. I LOVE YOU ALL!! Yes, Sue, I love you even though you used to throw your stuffed animals across the room at me when you were bored. (a memory she’ll never live down)

Claudia A. Evart founded Siblings Day Foundation, a nonprofit charity, to honor the memory of her sister, Lisette, and her brother, Alan. She lost both siblings too young from accidents. Siblings Day is celebrated annually on April 10th, Lisette’s birthday. Since 1998, 88 governors have signed gubernatorial proclamations in 40 states.

Siblings Day follows the spirit of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Grandparent’s Day – a great American tradition and celebration of family-unit values. It is an uplifting celebration honoring people who have shaped our values, beliefs and ideals. It is a relationship as equally important as a parent’s relationship.

H’s celebration is for HABITAT AWARENESS MONTH

Monday, April 9th: Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! H’s celebration is for HABITAT AWARENESS MONTH. Celebrated each April, this month is a worldwide observance for the need to protect the habitat of all Earth’s creatures, to make a conscious effort to preserve nature’s ecosystems.

Started by PALS (Protecting & Preserving Animalkind, Living Habitats and Spiritual Unity), this month is observed by many. The PALS Foundation extends a helping hand to educate and inspire a commitment to protect and preserve wildlife and their natural habitats.

As development slowly and steadily encroaches outward, natural habitats are lost, thousands of acres at a time. Increasing pesticide and herbicide use, coupled with the lost acreage for living, foraging and hunting food, is devastating for creatures that can’t speak for themselves.

What can you do to celebrate the life of the living creatures we share our world with? Can you add a birdfeeder and birdbath to your yard? Can you leave some brush area undisturbed? How about making sure you have three levels in your landscaping, grasses, shrubbery and trees? Maybe ditching the pesticides and going organic? Donating to organizations that promote native habitat areas and animal preservation? Let’s celebrate life … all life and recognize habitats for us ALL.
