With our focus this week on our Mother Earth, my thoughts went straight to “tree hugging” I know that there is a inuendo involved with “tree huggers” and that they-or should I say “we” are the extreme envronmentalists. Actually, Wikapedia defines “tree hugger” as: A slang, sometimes derogatory, term for environmentalists.
I don’t think that loving our earth, all that is on it and showing respect for all of its living creatures, is an extreme anything…Do you?
The trees in Michigan are cold and bare… they look like they could use a hug… So, lets put aside the derogotory reference of “tree huggers” and simply love and respect Mother Earth in a way that fits us best. Agreed?
