Good afternoon peeps!! I know it is later in the day today but after being on the road for hours today and getting work done, I have a couple of minutes to share something with you.
I got up this morning and was feeling pretty good, not great but good and needed a pick me up and all I had to do was look at this piece of art that my lovely mother-in-law made for me during her spare time this summer.
Now what do you see in this photo? I see an anchor with some pretty colors all around it like everyone else out there and it probably had a little to do with my Navy 10 year career as well but here is what I really see:
The definitions of anchor are what you would think with cables, ropes and chain links to hold a boat steady and stopping motion but the definition of anchor I want to talk about is:
A person or thing that can be relied on for support, stability, or security; mainstay.
This personifies who I want to be for my family and my friends and my tribe. I don’t even know if she knew how much it meant to me when she gave it to me. It is something I strive for every day and is one of my why’s that I have and why I am doing this.
So, reach out to your anchor today and let them know how much they mean to you. If you are someone else’s anchor, be proud and reach out to them to also let them know you care and will be there for them. If you don’t have a person as an anchor, find your saving grace you can lean in on as your anchor when the seas get rough and tumble.
Even if my mother in law didn’t mean to give it to me in this fashion, it still shows how much the smallest little things can do for other people.
Have a great rest of your day everybody.
