Mother very much appreciated the work of the
headquarters staff. For those of us in the publishing arm of the
organization, Mother participated in our everyday challenges and
successes, creativity and hard work. Mother also goaded us on to
accomplish the possible, and sometimes what seemed to us to be the
impossible. Like other spiritual adepts, Mother did not have concepts
of limitation and kept an incredible vision for the accomplishment
of projects or of meeting timelines unobstructed.
One Monday morning Mother and I were discussing
our production and mailing schedule for the week. The production
of various pieces of literature and a program for the Easter conference
were in process. Work was already behind schedule for these items
as we were getting very near to the time of the conference. Our
team thought that if all went well we could get the entire mailing
out on Friday at best.
Mother really wanted the mailing to get out
right awayFriday sounded too late. Our team explained to her
what steps were involved and how long these steps would take. We
also reviewed the other timely projects we had in process as well.
Mother was quite empathetic and simply asked that we do our best.
Mother said that if we could get the mailing out on Thursday, she
might dance a jig.
As a result of a great team effort and a bit
of heavenly assistance, all the pieces of the mailing were completed
and the majority of the mailing went to the post office on Thursday.
I sent Mother a message to let her know the news and to remind her
of what she had said.
Her heartwarming reply came back on the fax
