The simple joys of work
It got me to thinking about those little joys we have in our day when our work pays off, when we see results, like the water swirling down a bathtub drain.
So, I thought I'd list some of my favorite "pay-offs" from a good day's work.
- a clean, shiny kitchen sink
- an empty dishwasher
- a well-stocked refrigerator
- clean laundry neatly folded in dresser drawers (can you tell I'm catching up on my housework?)
- a box of books, newly published, with my name on the cover
There are so many small joys in the course of our days that sometimes we overlook. Take time to think about your little payoffs, like the swirling water down the drain and cherish the blessings of work. What are some of your simple joys?
