Beloved flower Lover,
‘You can never really live anyone else’s life, not even your child’s. The influence you exert is through your own life, and what you’ve become yourself’. – Eleanor Roosevelt
Mother’s Day comes around just once a year and it can be an important time to show your mum just how much you care.
Of course we are going to suggest that you give or send her a special bouquet of flowers. That’s what you expect us to say here. But as you do, we take it one step further here at The London Flower Lover.
And with Mother’s Day only a few days away, we are reminded of the great power and responsibility granted to women to bring life into the world.
While the act of pregnancy and giving birth, is a life-altering and affirming experience, it does not a mother make in full. Think about it, there are many mothers in the world who are loved deeply by people to whom they did not give birth.
Mother’s Day is a day that is dedicated to honour one’s biological and adopted mother, grandmother, step-mother and all the women who have cared for a child as their own. It is a day that celebrates the nurturing and powerful female energy. Mother’s Day is a day to reflect upon the role of women as mothers and the importance of their presence in our lives.
People around the globe honor mothers and celebrate their influence on society with appreciation, gratitude, love and meaningful gifts. So yes, the Mothers Day flowers that you order will last well after the day has passed and act as a daily reminder of how essential she is to you. Alive or dead, known or unknown to you.
Yes, sending Mother’s day gifts has become a tradition celebrated across the globe, and flowers have become the perfect gesture to signify this day.
Yes, flowers are the most popular gift to send, often pink roses are sent although tulips are equally as popular.
And no matter what flowers you send your Mother this upcoming Mothering Sunday March 30th, your heartfelt choice of flowers will communicate your deepest love.
Let’s look again at motherhood. These women who understand the power and connection to the Divine Feminine. They know that the spirit of the Great Mother lives in every women. To be a mother, is to embody the attributes of love , comfort and generosity, while caring for and honoring oneself. These acts evoke the divine feminine energy, allowing it to it pour forth, nourishing all who enter her space. When a woman lives in this energy, she lightens the load of her world and the wider world, brings peace to her family, inspires her friends, and permits a man to stand erect in all ways possible.
So we invite you to consider this:
- When you look upon someone with kind eyes and smile, you honor the Mother energy.
- When you care for another who is ill or down or lonely, you are the touch Mother energy.
- When you stand to protect another soul and speak out against injustice, you are the voice of Mother energy.
- When you love passionately- the children, the earth, the animals and yourself,you embody Mother.
- and when your life is rich with the greatest joys you could imagine and you see a child who is hurting and you would trade everything in order to bring them comfort,you are the Mother we all love
To all the women who love and care for their parents, their children, their family, friends, co-workers, complete strangers and random people they encounter everyday,
the Mother in us here at The London Flower Lover, honours the Great Mother in you.
Happy Mother’s Day.
