The Mother of All

It's hard to leave the moment when every moment is filled
with the sights and sounds and smells of the farm.
It's just how life flows around here and what makes this place so therapeutic.

There are places on this earth that are filled with healing, positive energy...
and this is most definitely one of those places...
especially in the Springtime!

It's hard to feel sad or anxious when you sit in cool, vibrant green grass 
and watch these gentle creatures all around you.

If I could I would bring each and every one of you out to the pasture to sit for a spell...
listening to the sounds of the mockingbird as it imitates the rest of the birds
who are singing in the woods and meadows.
You notice an obvious lack of man-made sounds...
behind the din of nature... silence.

You feel your blood pressure gently lower,
your heart rate becomes soft and regular...in no hurry to send energy to your relaxing muscles...
your lungs fill with the sweet, cool essence of fresh hay and lilac blossoms...
carried to your nose on a gentle breeze.

Your mind empties as your eyes watch soft, puffy clouds float across the vibrant blue
of a sky free from pollution.
You are surrounded by contented grazers...
happily munching their breakfast.

You lose all track of time... not knowing if moments or hours pass...
not caring either way.

It's in these peaceful moments you feel no pain...
no pain of body, no pain of mind...
your soul is lifted to a gentler plain.
All burdens and worries are left behind and in that moment you feel nothing but freedom.

In this fast-paced, filled-with-too-many-details kind of world
we need to take more time to do just this...
We need to take time to fill our souls with the pure energy of nature.
I can't help but think we would all be a lot healthier.
This is the world in which we live... the gift we have been given...
not the man-made this-and-that of everyday living...
but the realness and trueness that lives in a blade of grass...
in a puff of billowy cloud...
in the song of a bird...
in the gentle sighing breeze of the earth...
Mother Earth.

Take some time and spend it with your Mother... and feel her healing energy.
Happy Spring, friends.
Get outside-Be Well!


  1. I couldn't agree more with you that nature heals like nothing else. My spirit is lifted whenever I spend time outside. There is just no way to feel down when you are drinking in Mother Nature's glory. Hope your surroundings helped you heal quickly. Blessings...

  2. And you'll find Peace . . .
    Beautiful Beverly . . .
    Happy Mother's Day . . .
    Enjoy Iceland and your travels.

  3. Living life to the fullest!

  4. and there's no trump there right? i need a place like that! have a great trip!

  5. I could feel my blood pressure lower just reading this!

  6. Aaaaaah. Thank you for this.


  7. you know, I live practically the same life, just a few less critters on the farm, and I need to remind myself to relax and enjoy it more. We get so tangled up in the work of it we forget sometimes to really take it in and enjoy it.

    Thanks for the reminder.

  8. I grew up on a dairy farm and I think that is what I miss the most---besides the land---I miss that soft, sweet repose I felt sitting there looking over the farm fields and watching the animals in their farmyard homes.

    I have to ask--what is the hot pink "nose piece" attached to the donkeys? Just curious-I don't think I have seen those before.

    Hope you have a great week, Bev. xo Diana

    Thanks Bev....sure would love to spend time just relaxing on your farm with all your beautiful animals. What a great way to live. Wishing you a wonderful upcoming trip to Iceland. Wonder if you'll see some Northern Lights! Our daughter was there not too long ago and loved it. Can't wait to see your pictures! Take good care!
