The Mother's Day - My own mother passed over many years ago, and so I was thinking this morning I don't have to make sure I sent flowers and/or a card to her today.  And then as I was watching a beautiful sunrise, a thought came to me, but I still have a Mother to honor - the Mother Goddess and the Earth Mother.  So I light incense and burned a candle this morning and offered up thanks to my spiritual Mother and to my Earth Mother who nurtures me every day.  She doesn't ask for commercial offerings, just a gentle, heartfelt thanks for Her continuing support.  Also it comes to me that it would a good day to honor my ancestral mothers.

"Weave a thread of blood through time
Ladders of lives we all have climbed.
Grandmothers sail
on Summerland seas.
I honor you who live in me."
From Season of the Witch Datebook
