A Labor Day Thought

Something to think about:

If you are doing something for someone, don’t think of it as a “chore,” or a “duty,” that must be performed, consider it as an act of love for the other. Say for instance you prepare and serve your family a meal, it is not merely an act you are obliged to do, it is you loving your family.

If you are on the receiving end of a service, even if it is a service you have paid for, show your gratitude by saying “thank you.” And most certainly, if you are the recipient of a service given freely, show your appreciation wholeheartedly. Even if it is an everyday occurrence that you are served at the family table, treat it as an act of love, not something that’s expected of the other. Give appreciation, return that love.

Labor, when performed with love, is no labor at all.
