Honoring Mothers

Another view of Devil’s Den from Yellowrock Overlook


Today I want to honor our mothers; the earth, our birthmothers, and anyone who has helped nurture and care for us.

Planet earth is mother to everyone whether we acknowledge her or not. Most of you know of my love and appreciation for nature and her beautiful diversity of life. Here are some flowers from last week’s hike at Devil’s Den.

earth’s beauty and diverse gifts

a day to give thanks


Mom and I last year.


I’m headed to Virginia this week to visit my mom and brother. We will be talking about living options for mom if she can’t stay in the house. Me living with mom is one option that we will discuss. I wonder if mom would consider moving to Arkansas in my complex or a senior community that has assisted living options? Anyway, we will be having some discussions about what comes next. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

I will be away from blogging for two to three weeks. May we appreciate our mothers and all who help care for us.

Happy Mother’s Day!

  1. Beautiful photos and a lovely tribute to the mother of us all, Brad. Best of luck as you discuss your mom’s living arrangements. It’s not a comfortable one, but so necessary and for the best in the long run for everyone. I hope you find plenty of opportunities for peace and relaxation on your break as well as productive conversations. ❀
