MotherEarth

Mother’s Day is for Mothers right, but who is the Mother of all Mothers – Mother Earth Herself!

She is the wisest living thing at 4.54 billion years of age Mother Earth is constantly teaching us the right way. She gives us life, food, water, shelter, heat, and takes us back into her very being when we die. She gives us beauty to bestow, flowers to sweeten, herbs to cure and most importantly air to breath. She does the very simplest of things which we may or may not take for granted – drying our clothes, watering our gardens, seasons of variation in weather and food.

She is always full of life and can always surprise us. She makes many people rich and makes many people poor. She can give you life but she can also take it away from you. She is master of the sea’s and from a calm sunny day turn to the most angry storm. She should NEVER be taken for granted or for certain. She is always changing and will give us only what we need. We should never try and out smart Mother Earth. She will try and teach us the right ways for as long as she possibly can but she too is at risk of failing as delicate as a flower but as strong as rock there is no knowing how long we can push and take from her.

I feel privilege to have been born a woman giving life and running a home in the most eco/nomical, natural way possible and teaching my children the best ways to live in oder to try and do something to help our higher mother – Mother Earth. If you think your job is hard she most certainly has a tough job to do….

For my Mothers Day ritual I have set the following wishes to be followed out in full – No messing:

  1. A lovingly made card involving everyone else except me! (note to mums this will give you at least an hour of grace ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. Breakfast in bed with all my favorites – Porridge with Honey & Vanilla Yoghurt, Spelt toast & Breakfast Tea.
  3. ย A plant of sorts or a Tree sapling that can be planted in the garden or on a trek in the hills. This kills two birds with one stone, giving a present to both me & Mother Earth.
  4. Absolutely NO intensely packaged mass produced bought stuff of any kind, no matter how cute or convenient it is!
  5. If you can’t get the plant then some Claire Lewis tried and tested much loved Products that follow the CL Philosophy….such as Voya Handy to Have Hand Creme โ‚ฌ15. Irish owned and manufactured & made from as much organic and chemical free stuff as they can pack into a bottle. Sea weed which is hand harvested is one of the products and it does wonders for the skin! check stockest here.
  6. Or some PUKKA Tea in any flavour!
  7. Or a foot massage by hand using Lavender Essential Oils by ย The Body Shop (beauty with a heart!) or Lavender Soap hand made by Fragrances Of Irelandย they have the most beautiful Organic Lavender Field in Kilmacanogue ,Co Wicklow and have a store right next to AVOCA hand weavers across the road from the Lavender Fields!
  8. All else fails I want a day of Peace & Love!!
