I love getting to work when it’s still dark outside. The sun has yet to rise, and I already feel productive. I unlock the door…turn off the alarm and cut the lights on. There’s my desk…my lamp…my phone – The phone that doesn’t need to be turned on for another hour. Ahhh..It’s a beautiful thing, this job I’ve got.
I get to greet my work family members as they make their way towards the time clock – Handing their day over to Morehead Pools…to give their best for this company that I love…this company that my family owns. I smile and joke with these beautiful, odd people – All while sipping my coffee. It’s a beautiful thing, this job I’ve got.
I turn my computers on…key in passwords that my bosses trust me with. I wake the sleeping beast…good thing she’s a morning person;) Life behind my counter is good. I set the thermostats to desirable temperatures. I turn the radio on…to the stations that I enjoy. I mosey on back to the design showroom area and turn the fireplace on…then the television to HGtv. Next I fire up the Keurig. It’s important to keep the coffee ready to brew…VERY important. It’s a beautiful thing, this job I’ve got.
And you know what else? I have more than one best friend under one roof with me for the better half of my day…EVERY blessed work day. People I trust and love are constantly surrounding me. I work…I smile…I laugh…I get to help people. It’s a beautiful thing, this job I’ve got.
Seriously, I love my job.
Take joy in the simple blessings of each and every day. The fact that I have responsibility is blessing enough. I’m so thankful for this life I get to live…It really is a beautiful thing! 🙂
