M is for motivation…

m4pThere was a little girl who

learned a lesson in motivation from her mommy.

The little girl’s family had a really old refrigerator.
Sometimes it would get all icy or it wouldn’t get cold at all.

Her mommy,
who wasn’t too fond of the kitchen anyway,
hated that refrigerator.

One day when it wasn’t working her mommy
called daddy at work to tell him about
the **** refrigerator and she wanted a new one.

Daddy said just remove the bottom panel
and take a screw driver and wiggle the thingy-a-bob
a couple of times and it would be fine.

Mommy was not happy.

One thing you need to know about the little girl’s mommy
she could get very angry.
When she was very angry she was very strong.

Mommy hung up the phone,
unplugged the refrigerator, pushed it across the kitchen,
shoved it down the steps, out the door, and to the middle of the driveway.

When daddy came home they went to the store and bought a new refrigerator.

The little girl learned that anger can motivate you
to do things that seem impossible.

She also learned that when mommy was motivated
daddy was motivated, too.

About Patricia

I am a woman of a certain age who was raised a Yankee and now lives in the South. I am still a Yankee but a "softer" one. My catkid and my friends are my family. My conservative friends think I am a liberal while my liberal friends think I am conservative. I am not talking politics here...I have no interest in politics! I laugh a lot, cry sometimes, rarely angry, not really shy but an introvert for sure, pretty open but do have some secrets. Ok, that's me...or some of me anyway.

  1. This made me laugh! I have known more than one mommy who got angry enough to make her point loud and clear, and a couple office workers too! :-)) Sometimes a little anger serves good purpose when we need to get someone’s attention to deal with a problem!

    • Yep, she motivated those around her to get her way! I think her anger was mostly frustration and impatience with the world.

  2. This is a parable if I’ve ever heard one…strength runs deep but you’re right, sometimes anger is the greatest motivator…in 12 Step they say it’s pain…pain is the ticket on the train.
