Mother Nature

A personification of the natural world, sometimes thought of as the force that controls it. Although the term is sometimes used to identify the cause of things such as natural disasters, it is typically used in a positive or neutral way, especially in the sense of a nurturer and provider. Look at all the wonders that Mother Nature provides, from fruit and vegetables to beautiful mountains and oceans. You better batten down the hatches, because Mother Nature is blowing up a serious storm.
