Loving to Work!

I love to work.
I love to help.
I love to make others’ burdens a little lighter.
I love to be of service.
I love to tell the highest truth I know.
I love to clean and organize.
I love to create a beautiful space
I love to do what I do best.
I love to make life a little better and brighter.
I love to put my natural talents and gifts to work.
I love to make a kitchen or bathroom sparkle.
I love to organize a drawer.
I love to write a book.
I love to cook a family meal.
I love to clean house.
I love to do whatever I do.
(Now there is the clue to the work you do.)

When I love what I do, I give my best.
When I love what I do, I listen within to my own guidance and rhythm.
When I love what I do, I enjoy the experience.
When I love what I do, I appreciate the results.
When I love what I do, I am detached from others' approval.
When I love what I do, I feel fulfilled rather than depleted.
When I love what I do, I am happy and at peace.
When I love what I do, I look forward to the next thing I get to do.
When I love what I do, life is an adventure rather than a chore.
I love what I do and I do what I love.

If I didn't love it, I would hire it done or do an exchange.
Or I would find something I could truly enjoy about it.
Or I would change my mind and love it anyway.
Or I would love myself for being willing to do it for love.

Do you notice I prefer to be happy and in love?
Loving you is just as natural as breathing,
Betty Lue

Personal postscript
So Tuesday and Wednesday morning I was in bed resting.
When I rest I truly rest (sleep, breathe, pray and listen).
When I am up and on, I am working and enjoying the fullness of my life.
Thursday, Robert and I were up at 4:15AM to Gia's Mom's (Oakland) by 5:30PM and to daughter Hilarie's (San Francisco) by 8AM. There we were sorting, clearing, organizing, putting together baby furniture and moving out their dining room for the girl's nursery. We also were laughing, loving appreciating Gia's help, and delighting over the coming twin girls. Today up at 5 AM with Robert going to pick up Gia (Petaluma) at her Papa's for a morning of leisurely play and horseback riding lesson (Walnut Creek) and over to Hilarie's in San Francisco for a little more help getting ready. I will help Hilarie (on total bed rest for the next 2 weeks, when the twins are 36 weeks and about 5-6 lbs or more) sort and organize her closet and stuff and do other packing and spring-cleaning. This morning after some administrative and creative work in my home office, I will drive over to SF to take Hil to her MD's appointment and for her weekly sonogram. Trusting all will be well and we will toodle on home for a day of enjoyment and fulfilling work. I love my life being on call for the Good of All. :)
