Don’t forget which side your bread is buttered on…
Yesterday was my mother’s 96th birthday,
and I had the honor of celebrating with her.
And I will be with her on Mother’s Day, too.
She has been a true companion
as I have traveled the highs and lows
of my life.
I am so grateful
to have had her beside me.
But there is another mother
on my mind and in my heart right now.
She is the mother of us all: Earth.
Everything we have comes from her…
Many of us are hopelessly in LOVE with planet Earth.
The beauty available to me as I gaze out my window
is overwhelming at times.
I am privileged to look out over an expansive field
which today is populated with wildflowers.
Their exotic scents are an astonishing blend
of the scents of the wild,
the scents of freedom,
the scents of the our mother, the Earth.
The creative expression of our Mother, the Earth, is unsurpassed.

Just when you think you have seen it all, you see something new.
Honor your mother today, but include, even if only silently, some gratitude and appreciation for the mother of us all, Beloved Earth.
