Mother’s Day Tribute
I am a mother to my child, to my animal companions, to my plants and to the natural world around me. I have loved and lost my own mother. I have watched others become mothers, aunts, grandmothers and best friends. I have made mistakes. I have learned from those mistakes. I have worked hard. I have enjoyed life to the fullest. I have shared what I have learned with others. I keep learning from others. I take pride in watching others grow. I try to be considerate of others. I am passionate about the things I care about. I try to be strong but can also allow myself to be vulnerable. I am there for others and they are there for me. These are traits that make me a mother. How about your mother figure? Is there something in particular that stands out? Or was she just always there when you needed her? Is this person your actual mother, or is she a grandmother, a sister, an aunt or someone else?
We would like to celebrate mothers of all kinds with some meaningful ways to say thank you for helping you become who you are today. From May 1 to May 10 we are offering these plants at special discounts to make it a little easier to show your mother figure a Happy Mother’s Day in your own way!
