Show your mother how much you love her.
A Mother’s Day Poem
A mother’s love determines how
We love ourselves and others.
There is no sky we’ll ever see
Not lit by that first love.
Stripped of love, the universe
Would drive us mad with pain;
But we are born into a world
That greets our cries with joy.
How much I owe you for the kiss
That told me who I was!
The greatest gift–a love of life–
Lay laughing in your eyes.
Because of you my world still has
The soft grace of your smile;
And every wind of fortune bears
The scent of your caress.
The tree of life is a powerful, life-affirming symbol in almost every culture. With its branches reaching towards the sky, and roots embedded deeply in the earth, it dwells in three worlds, becoming a link between heaven, the earth, and the underworld, uniting above and below.
It represents all that is true, wholesome, stable, and noble. When you are in need of stability and strength in your life – envision the tree of life in your minds eye.
