From Psychology Wiki: Nurture is usually defined as the process of caring for and teaching a child as the child grows. Often, it is used in debates as the opposite of "nature" (see nature versus nurture), whereby nurture means the process of replicating learned cultural information from one mind to another, and nature means the replication of genetic non-learned behavior.
The trees in this picture have definitely been cared for and nurtured.
In everything I looked up nurture was tied to nature.
For me I see it as the gentle care of any person, both young and old,
and the gentle care of our earth.
A garden with food to eat is nurtured and cared for.
What inspired me to choose this word today comes from Simple Abundance
by Sarah Ban Breathnach.
"Today, sow some symbolic seeds, even if you don't have a garden,
as a gesture to ritualize the new life you are creating within.
Ask for the blessing of Spirit and the nurturing of the Great Mother and know
that in dire time there will be an abundant harvest for yourself
and those you love."
I believe in caring for yourself and others
your soul is nurtured.
In caring for the earth,
the earth rejoices.
