Most people enjoy watching the wildlife in their area but don't realize that they can make their own personal space more inviting and environmentally friendly. The idea of a wildlife habitat conjures images of a reserve or nature park, large swaths of land given over to the animals. While this is true and these types of places are wonderful, any locale can become a wildlife habitat, even your own backyard.
Anyone can create these habitats, no matter the size of your area, from a two acre yard to a small balcony in the city.
Death. The word alone seems to put a bitter taste in the mouth, or a heaviness on the heart. I have been obsessed with understanding the part of the life cycle that is death since I was little, and had lost two very special people in my life within the same year. The usual feelings when losing a beloved is: why would God, if there is such a thing, do this? Why would a God allow death? Why have they been taken away from me? These are all real and valid feelings.
