I know all the words like imagination, attitude and perseverance. But The biggest motivator is for love. That is the magic touch for me, because There ain't nothing like my sweet baby, ain't nothing like her in this world.

What a great analogy! If you only hack off the visible parts of weeds, the roots are still there and will produce more weeds - and the hacked up bits gan start separat weeds. Remove the root, and it's all gone. The permanent removal is worth all the extra work.

If we just remove the visible manifestations of behavioral weeds in our life, the roots will just produce new plants. We need to remove the roots of the problem. Takes a lot more time, but gives us permanent peace. Thank you for this telling analogy, brother Wright!
