In Greek mythology she is the Earth. She appeared from the darkness a long time ago but know one really knows her origins. A young women, filled with loneliness, Gaea fell in love with the sky; Uranus. Their children, the Titans, loved Gaea and reffered to her as "Mother Earth" but they feared their father, lord of the universe.
My best friend's mother is so gentle and caring while her father is strict and secluded, it reminded me of Gaea and Uranus
