WPC: Mother Earth

May 6. 2016 garden 047


“She is the creature of life, the giver of life,

and the giver of abundant love, care and protection.

Such are the great qualities of a mother.

The bond between a mother and her child

is the only real and purest bond in the world,

the only true love we can ever find in our lifetime.”


Ama H. Vanniarachchy

“Love is active, not passive.

It is our love for one another,

for Mother Earth, for our fellow creatures

that compels us to act on their behalf.”

“But behind all your stories

is always your mother’s story,

because hers is where yours begins.”

“Life is a walking, a journey.

So, if life upon Mother Earth is a journey, there are two ways to walk. We can choose to walk forward or we can choose to walk backward.

Forward Walking choices are rewarded with consequences that light the way to peace, happiness, joy, comfort, knowledge, and wisdom.

Backward Walking choices bring to the Two-Legged beings consequences of misery despair, and darkness.”

  1. Love your photos and quotes for this week’s challenge – Earth.

  2. I always love your great quotes, esp. that first one. It is so true that there is no love like that of a mother for her child. Unfathomable.
    Hope your Mother’s Day is a fine one! ❤

    • Thank you so much, Eliza, and may your Mother’s Day weekend be filled with love and good times, also. We are headed to a local artists gathering tomorrow where our neighbor will have his pottery on display, and then to our favorite Thai restaurant for a late lunch. Finally sun again! Should be a lovely May day here tomorrow! Hugs to you, WG
