I Go to Nature

“I go to Nature to be soothed and healed,
and to have my senses put in tune once more.”


I have always been a “nature” lover. I crave the beach and the salt air blowing all around me. I also love the woods and the calm I feel when I am sitting in the middle of God’s masterpiece. Since I was little I have started the habit of “looking up” when I am in the midst of nature. It is symbolic of what I want to create in my inner being - a sense of peace and positivity.

I want to instill this passion for nature in Little Chick, however, I think children already come with it. It is something that needs to be nurtured and held onto. We all can get lost in the craziness of “schedules” and it is up to us to make sure we don’t allow it to take away from the simplicity of what’s all around us.

When it is nice out I make sure we spend as much time outdoors as possible. Little Chick loves to help me water the flowers, feed the birds, and do some planting. She enjoys running around our yard with our dog Pudding chasing after her. Whether it is Winter in the snow or Spring with the flowers we love to settle down in the grass and simply “look up”. We watch the trees dancing in the wind and listen to the symphony of nature.

Little Chick helps me to revisit all the most important things in my life.

  3. Yes, children truly do help us see things anew. That is one of my favorite parts of being a parent.

    PS. I look up like you do!

  5. I love spending time outside with by boys! With my baby (11 months old) we used to just sit outside and feel the wind annd smell the grass. Now he wont sit still at all! He is crawling around everywhere! I usually play soccer or t-ball with my oldest son (5 years). This year we are even growing a vegetable garden. Thanks for the post!

  6. I know some of the most special moments with my children is when we venture out for walks or bike rides on the trails around our home. We're surrounded by beautiful wetlands and it's absolutely gorgeous on a sunny day.

  14. You are so right, Mama Hen! Children come with an innate sense of wonder, curiosity and love of nature. Through time and stress and the folly of life, we lose that natural sense. Thanks for reminding us to rekindle it within ourselves.

  17. I'm definitely a nature person; I would always much prefer to be in the countryside rather than in a city.

  18. Oh YES they come with a passion for outdoors. Boo Boo would rather be outside, at the park, at the splash pad, at the zoo, camping than anything else. ;)
