Mother's Day is coming up in a few days and for some of us, this holiday can be challenging. Many of us have lost our moms. Some never had a good relationship with their mom. Some worry about whether they are a good mom.
So what should you do if Mother's Day confuses you? Give thanks for the greatest mom on the planet: Mother Earth! She never leaves you empty. All you need to do is open your eyes, and she will grant you peace. Find a sunset, a river, a tree, even the smallest flower, and you will see the beauty that awaits you.
Even with your eyes closed, Mother Earth can bring a smile to your face. Recall the scent in the air after a spring rain, or the smell of a lilac bush, or the fresh air when you exit your office after you've been confined inside the entire day. This is how she greets you and says "hello, you matter to me, I love you."
So as you celebrate (or not) on this day devoted to mothers, remember to take a moment and give love back to that girl who nurtures you without asking. She is always there and never asks for anything in return: our Mother Earth.
