Happy Mother's Day Mother Nature!
Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May every year, with a few exceptions (second Sunday of February, 8th march or the fourth Sunday of Lent, etc.).
Since the early 20th century (1905), mothers day is traditionally dedicated to mothers and motherhood ideals that have existed throughout the world.
It is a day when we recognize and commemorate the role that mothers play in our lives, their importance and significance. It is the day we appreciate the presence of such amazing women in our lives.

She is the one who provides us with resources to enrich our lives, who gives our life substance and endows us with her blessings. She provides us with love and care when we are good and with wrath when we destroy her integrity.
She is the one who has always provided us with food and shelter since ancient times.
She has the innate ability to lift our spirits and add to our well-being. This mothers day, let's appreciate our Mother Nature and her significance in our lives.

The morning air in the rustic atmosphere mesmerizes our senses, alleviate our worries and troubles from our minds, and we become anew with energy.
There is enchanting beauty in nature, the sweet earthy smell in the air, the gentle rustling of leaves, the aromatic fragrance of flowers, and the luscious, succulent fruits that we savor. All these are gifts from her that we enjoy.
As long as Mother Nature is present in our lives, human beings will always thrive and flourish.
When we give back to mother nature, or plant a tree, it gives back and provide us with shade and preserves us with her bounty.
