As everyone knows (or at least, everyone should know!), yesterday was Mother’s Day. A day to appreciate she who brought you into the world (and can take you out, as the popular saying goes!).
Unlike most people when it comes to Mother’s Day, I don’t run straight for the flower arrangements as a gift. Why? Because not only is it cliché (like on Valentine‘s day), flowers don’t last. I want to give my mother something she can show off for years and unless they’re fake, flowers don’t fit the bill.
So, like I usually do as a broke artist, I made my mother’s gift for Mother’s Day. A jewelry set; a necklace, a bracelet, and earrings, in her favorite colors. And, like I usually do, I gave it to her before Mother’s Day so she could wear them ON Mother’s Day. That and when I make gifts in advance, I’m notoriously bad at saving them for the actual date they’re to be given. [^_^]
Now, while we were all celebrating our loving mothers, grandmothers, and other mothers in our lives, someone brought to my attention a mother that tends to be overlooked on Mother’s Day (probably because her “Mother’s Day” is called something else). Know which mother I’m talking about? Come on… Think…. Work it out…
Yeah, it sounds New Agey but whatever, it’s true. Without the Earth, none of us would be alive, right? So why just honor her on Earth Day? In my opinion, Earth Day should be every day, and the Earth should be acknowledged on Mother’s Day.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a nice Mother’s Day!
Until next time…
