blessings come to those who serve

I am very fortunate to have a job where my main objective is to serve others.  I work with disabled adults and on a daily basis I am feeding, changing, cleaning up after, encouraging, entertaining and teaching these adults.

Most of the time I just work in the day program from 8 am -2;30 PM but I have been volunteering on Sundays in the group home where along with the things I do here at day service i also, bathe, prepare meals for and help these people prepare for bed.  even, though I get paid to do this, I feel a lot of love for these people and great blessings come because of this job.

Lately the love I have for those around me has increased tenfold and especially for those I work with and take care of.  I really do have one of the best jobs in the world and I feel so blessed to have this job.  I realize not everyone could do this kind of work but I love it and I love the people and its a great way for me to show that love and get closer to them.

I thank Heavenly father every day for the opportunity I have to serve and to love and for the blessings I have because i am fortunate enough to know these people.
