Beloved Flower Lover,
Who is your mother?
How do you mother?
How do you feel the appreciation for mothering of your ideas?
How do we show appreciation to the women without children on this day?
Mother’s Day in the United States is annually held on the second Sunday of May. It celebrates motherhood and it is a time to appreciate mothers and mother figures.
Many people give gifts, cards, flowers, candy, a meal in a restaurant or other treats to their mother and mother figures, including grandmothers, great-grandmothers, stepmothers, and foster mothers.
Many people send cards or gifts to their mother or mother figure or make a special effort to visit her. Common Mother’s Day gifts are flowers, chocolate, candy, clothing, jewelry and treats, such as a beauty treatment or trip to a spa. Some families organize an outing for all of their members or hold a special meal at home or in a restaurant.
In the days and weeks before Mother’s Day, many schools help their pupils to prepare a handmade card or small gift for their mothers.
Now we have looked at the conventional about mothering, now lets look at another way to honour mothering.
Many women need re mothering of themselves. The women with and without children.
Every woman on earth has a creative birth flow that originates in her spirit and comes into physical form in her pelvic bowl. This is her birth energy- whether or not she has children. And it is designed to flow through us pleasurably and with ease.
We don’t have all the answers, but we are open to perhaps learning to give women flowers just because. Just because you want to appreciate her.
Unfortunately, because of obsolete belief systems about women’s worth, medicalized or traumatic births, mean that some woman are out of touch with this inner source of power and delight. Again, we offer ways of sending and sharing kindness. Perhaps again learning to give women flowers just because.Just because you want to appreciate her.
Show women that you appreciate them. Appreciate yourself if you are a woman. Appreciate their creativity and ability to bring ideas to term, to birth. Health physical therapist, Tami Lynn Kent, is one such person who assists women in accessing their delightful birth flow so that they may once again access their creative birth flow and live fully and healthfully.
We give thanks for all women who have had children or not.We offer them flowers as our simple way to reflect their beauty.

p.s. We give thanks for many mother figures. Dr. Christine Northrup is our chosen mother figure for this year. We love here conscious raising activities.
Her recent book, Lightening the Mother Load: Healing Strategies for Daughters’ acknowledges a core relationship.
