Seeds, Games and Grandmother Love
Posted by pocahontasbrandy
Good Morning lovely grand daughter!
We are the Grandmothers here and are so pleased you are flexible and available to us. We wanted to urge you to write a few words for us about grandmotherly things that concern us about our dear grandchildren and children especially in America this morning.
As we spoke of in our previous message, eating healthily is one thing grandmothers do care about Universally and your own mother has sent you something we wish you would post concerning this laboratory tampering of your vital seed supplies. Kindly post the message here would you dear heart?
“Hi, I received this from sil Wes in CA and thought it timely and important.
So-called ‘Monsanto riders,’ quietly slipped into the multi-billion dollar FY 2013 Agricultural Appropriations bill, would require – not just allow, but require – the Secretary of Agriculture to grant a temporary permit for the planting or cultivation of a genetically engineered crop, even if a federal court has ordered the planting be halted until an Environmental Impact Statement is completed. All the farmer or the biotech producer has to do is ask.
That’s why I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:
“Stop the Monsanto riders. Unless a citizen’s army of farmers and consumers can stop them, Congress is likely to ram these dangerous riders through any day now.”"
Will you sign this petition? Click here:
As you can see, feeding loved ones is of course a function of love. The best possible foods are grown organically on lands tended with love. Including live stock. We heartily endorse Farmers Markets and growing your own gardens and live stock at the local level.
Another topic we wanted to bring up today is that of games and toys. Grandmothers are sources of games & toys for their little ones and we hope more and more grandmothers on the Earth step in and take a stand about the KINDS of toys & games they sanction for their grandchildren. These electronic games of stealing cars and killing aliens & wars with all kinds of beings are not, in our opinion, very healthy playthings. Sitting around on the couch all day with a remote control is not the same as running around playing hide and seek in the yard or baseball or soccer or any number of other games that stimulate physical and mental and emotional growth. Learning to be a part of a team is wonderful of course and we celebrate the Olympics. We also encourage creativity in the use of paints and paper and wood and nails to build tree houses.
Seeds of peace dear grand child. Seeds of peace are sown in gardens where all generations may work together, outside in nature hiking and biking, over tea or a cup of coffee or a meal made together in the kitchen or by a campfire. In these simple rituals & routines, with these games fun is discovered and rediscovered. Playing with and tossing a ball. Swimming, paddling, moving in a creative dancing way.
Children thrive on adult attention so this is where we urge you to spend time. At the side of your grandchildren, listening, watching, laughing with them. Smiles are Universal too.
Thanks! We thank you dear heart for sharing our message today.
