Today And Everyday

We know it’s Earth Day and it is pleasing to think that the world takes time to celebrate our big green earth. It seems fair and just, that this planet, our global home and mother that tries her best to sustain us, gets her day on our yearly calendar. I’m not sure this particular day is what we consider so significant, but what we are celebrating and honoring, certainly is. Honestly, think about it, everyday is Earth Day. We plant our feet on it everyday, we benefit from all its life giving components, we are able to exist because of her generosity, everyday. We all have our own mothers, and soon we will be celebrating that day as well. We will call our moms and thank her, we will give her cards and flowers, and we will say ” Thanks for life, mom”. When we consider how life giving all mothers are……our own birth mums and the big green earth mother that embraces all of us….it may feel surprising that we would take any of it for granted. I hope this one day that gets written on our calendar as Earth Day, reminds us to pay tribute…. each and every day. A simple acknowledgement, a thank you, a prayer, some gratitude and appreciation , for this wonderful planet that tries to sustain us, against some great odds. Doesn’t it make sense that we protect, nurture, and honor this life giving force? I am often humbled by the earths tenacity, resilience, and fierce want to provide……I am also confused at how we may often underestimate our responsibility to respect and regard its health and future.
Enjoy this day, enjoy tomorrow, enjoy each and everyday that is gifted to us from our big, lovely, Mother Earth.2012-02-16_13-14-51_634

  1. Indeed! Knowing Fernwood Nursery well, it is truly the embodiment of the ideals of Earth Day and Everyday. Fernwood is the best example I know of giving respect to our planet, reaping its rewards and sharing its bounty. Thank you for your blog and reminding us to be grateful!

    • Hello Rick,
      Thank you for your kind words and your presence …..I like to think ” it takes a village” to care for a planet. Maybe lots of small and big villages throughout the globe. Thank you for being part of our village…you’re a good one to have around, my friend.
