Embracing Mother Earth On Her Day

Earth_Day

 

Today is Earth Day, so how should we  thank this weary planet for the life-giving, air, water and everything else that she provides us with, that most of us take for granted?
This planet has existed for billions of years, but each year it becomes more and more of a struggle just for her to continue living.
Many of us never give her, or what we do to her, a second thought.
This is a tragic mistake.
One day, unless we change our hearts and minds and begin showing respect and concern for her, Mother Earth may not take care of us any longer, she may not be able to, she may die.
Every day, we fill her Oceans, Rivers and Lakes with garbage, toxins and poisons of all description.
Every day, we pollute her atmosphere, the very air that we all breathe, with more of the same.
Every day, we dig deep into her soul, stripping all that she has, leaving her scarred and wounded, with no concern for the effects of it on her at all.
Every day, we cut down her stunning, majestic trees that nearly touch the sky, for what, more paper to fill up our shredders?
Since we took our first steps on her face, we have taken and taken, rarely giving back, and even less often, cared much about the effects of our impact on her.
So, my question to each of us is, yes, including myself, what will you/we do today for Mother Earth?
Have you ever noticed, that after facing an extraordinary danger or imminent death, when first putting their feet back on the planet, many people react by kneeling down and kissing the Earth?
So, on this very special day to Honor her, how should each of us show Mother Earth our gratitude?
As for me, I am going into my garden and pull some weeds, that should make her smile~

    • Yes, it would. Even little things can mean so much. A minute or two from each of us every day, could truly make a difference for the Planet~ It would be a place to begin.

  1. Taking and sharing her beauty with others is how I make her happy. A weed is something beautiful and beneficial of hers too. 😉

    • Thank you so much for your kind words. Mother Earth and her creatures can use all of the care and concern they can get. Welcome to our little corner of the world here in the Forest~

  2. I missed Earth Day 😦 I can’t believe it!! Love your posts, it’s very beautiful. Thank you for following! And thank you for coming by my blog 🙂 Looking forward to yours! Thanks for sharing

    • Hello Nina. Thank you for your kindness and support.
      It is very appreciated as I am very new here to WP.
      As for Earth Day, not to worry, you can Honor Mother Earth each and every day that you are alive.
      Even the smallest things can make a difference.

      • Hello again :). Thank you for supporting me! :). Ah, well I will swing around your blog more often! Well that’s good! I will do my best. I do think everyday should be Earth Day though, since the Earth is very important! Indeed, anything is wonderful.

    • Thank you for your kind words. My ambition is to inspire each of those who come here to get involved.
      What more than that could anyone want? I am grateful for your support~

  3. We had a block party, 20 blocks long, we walked & cleaned from the downtown area to the beach. 85 men, women and children cleaned and planted 8 trees to replace storm damage ones along the way (since this week also hosted Arbor Day) and made certain everything was recycled properly. Even though there was no food or drinks (just water), we all had A Great Time. At the beach even though it wasn’t the sea, we held hands and song, By The Sea By The Beautiful Sea. Have An Awesome Week Ahead ;-D

    • What a wonderful thing you all did.
      Give yourselves a great big pat on the back for giving our planet some breathing room.
      Wish I lived closer to you, would have loved to have been there to join the party.
      Mother Earth could use many more just like you and your friends.
      Wahoo~
