A Gift for Mother Nature for Mother's Day

Dear Mother Nature,

Mother's Day is coming up this weekend, and I thought that I would get you a gift.  (I am good like that.)  At first, though, I was perplexed.  I mean, really, what do you get for Mother Nature, the mother of all mothers?



Umm. No!  You grow the most beautiful ones yourself.



No.  Not quite right.  Although dark chocolate is such a treasure!

And speaking of treasures . . . what about precious gems?

Nope.  Again, you could make those yourself, deep within the earth.

But then I had a eureka moment!

Mother Nature . . . may I present you with your new Garmin GPS !

Because judging by the amount of rain that we have received lately, I think that you must be a little directionally challenged this year.  You must think that the Midwest is really a rain forest, and I am here to tell you, it is not

So please Mother Nature, use your Garmin well.  Locate the Midwest.  Locate the rain forests.  Notice that they are in two very different parts of the globe, and then, promptly redirect your weather and climate choices.

Sincerely awaiting the spring sunshine (and a dry basement),


PS  Just wanted to throw out there that we are in a recession.  The best way to keep your job is to do it well.  Just sayin'.


  1. How do you think up these things? We, too, have had rain, rain, rain with maybe one day of sun here and there.

  2. Heee heee... this is fantastic.

    I already chewed her out once this year. And the Groundhog too- he's a total liar!!

    Hope she listens to you!

  3. This post is so cute and creative! Great suggestion on the GPS - we were washed away with rain in Cali this winter/spring so maybe Mother Nature can "locate" California as well! :)

  4. Ha! I hope Mother Nature accepts this gift and uses it. My basement smells like mold.

  5. I think Mother Nature just got the memo I sent her last week about ending all the gloomy cold weather. We finally have sunny skies and 80 degree weather.

    Hope she comes through for you too!

  6. A GPS is perfect for Mother Nature. You'll never see rain again!!


I love, love, love to read your comments!
