To Serve

     There are times in life when you have to ask yourself, "Why do I bother?"
     Life is so stressful. Yet, everyday we get up and go at it once more. I mean, what choice do you have really? To stay in bed and hide under the covers? I would love to be able to do that every now and then, but with a house full of people it's never been an option. Besides, they know where my bed is. I can see them now standing right next to it poking me, asking me what's for dinner.
     Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be. If our lives are filled with taking care of others, we have less time to focus on all of our woes and we can make it through the day more satisfied.
     I really believe that if you are depressed or unhappy, find some kind of service you can provide for someone. You will feel so much better. Service gives you a feeling inside you just can't get from anything else. Sometimes I have to remind myself of this fact, but it has proven itself to me over and over again.
     There is always someone who is worse off than you and when you see or hear about them it makes you grateful for your own challenges and they don't seem so hard anymore.
     Just a little food for thought this morning. Have a good one everyone.
