Nature does not judge — there are no pretenses where she is concerned. When I am with her, I don’t have to conceal my true self. I am at ease in her presence and I can breathe. She accepts me for who I am and I accept her.
When I am with Nature, I have no fear that she will put me down in order to lift herself up. Instead, she lifts me up again and again, selflessly nurturing.
If I have the dreary wearies, she is there to remind me that tomorrow is a new day.
Through her gifts, she shows me how sweet and good life is: a baby bird, tender leaf buds, fiery sunset skies, healing hands, elephant shaped clouds, warm spring rain, children, the sun on my face, real people, freshly laid eggs, and heart shaped rocks.
Thank you Nature.
