Gifted Heritage. Borrowed Land.

"Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children." - Native American Proverb.

Cindy Parker reminded me of this proverb this weekend while we were driving back from a women farmers meeting, here. i was so thankful.
