LOVE YOUR WORK, but don't forget to get some sleep!

Did you grow up hearing something like this? "If you are lucky enough to do what you love for a job, you will never work a day in your life."-- Meaning that if you love what you do, it isn't really work.

Hmmm. . . whoever said that was nuts. I love what I do. I love being a mother of five. I love being a wife to a good man (and yes, it is work, but well worth it.) I love serving in the Gospel. I love working in my garden and yard. I love playing my harp and guitar and writing new songs. I love telling stories. But I will be totally honest here, most nights I pretty much stumble into bed because I'm flat tuckered out. ALL the things I love to do are HARD work.

I think the quote should be something like, "Happy is the woman who works hard at what she loves."

Most of you reading the ANWA Founder and Friends Blog are fellow writers. I imagine many of you could say it better. Any takers?


  1. I loved my former job...the job. Giggle. It's the people that can drive you crazy. My take: I've worked hard, now I'm going to nap hard.

  2. I've found that if I don't take care of myself, I don't do a good job of taking care of anyone or anything else. Work hard, nap hard. I like it, Terri.

  3. You said it just right, Cindy! love it! hugs~

  6. Okay, I am going to try this one more time. It helps to wake up a bit before I type.

    How about . . . "Happy is the woman who loves her work, works hard and sneaks a nap."?
