It's Mother's Day this week. I'd like to honor all of the different types mothers of the world, including mothers who have lost children, those who have lost mothers, those with strained mother relationships, mothers with strained child relationships, those who have chosen not to be mothers, and those yearning to be mothers. Thinking of you today. Moonstone represents a feminine, nurturing energy, that gently supports and encourages us all to attune to the normal rhythms of the biological forces of ones body.
