The second Sunday in the States is typically reserved for Mother’s day. A day created to honor our Mom’s, further commercialized by Hallmark to make as much money as possible. Jewelers, electronic stores…everyone who sells something has jumped into take take our money so we can gift to our Mom’s material things which will attempt to show how much we care about them.
I bought my mom the final season of one of her favorite TV shows.
Today I think all of us, no matter what creed or belief system, need to take a moment and thank our shared Mother.
Thank you, Mother Nature, Mamma Gaia, Lady Earth, whatever name you personally call her, for all that you provide for us. The flesh of your land from which we grow our sustenance. The water of your rivers from which we gather drink. The areas which you provide for us to live. Too many have taken advantage of your gifts and too few have shown gratitude.
