Mothers Are Like That

You searched through all the Mother’s Day cards to get just the right one … or you decided to make one yourself. You fretted over what to write in the card and watched with an encouraging, hopeful half-smile that she would be pleased.

Women and men both approach LiGoPeFoLo, the Anchored Living™ principles, on equal footing, but when it comes to the role of motherhood, women give the appearance of starting on a bit of a downhill incline that gains momentum more quickly and with a bit less strain.

I have no proof of this; it’s just my observation based on my mother and discussions with others about their mothers.

Radiating an aura of ‘this is how to be.’

Wanting good for as many people as possible.

Speaking and acting to maintain and accelerate cooperation.

Rushing to hug and show an increase of love for a returning prodigal.

Loving others in as many different ways as there are children in their hearts.

Mothers are like that … and the world needs more people like this.

When you are focusing on a particular anchor principle, look for examples to follow and goals to set based on a mother you know well. You’ll not only set a better goal and have a good example to follow, you will also strengthen a relationship.
