Sunday Saying

"Look, I have one job on this lousy ship. It's stupid, but I'm going to do it, okay?"
- Gwen, Galaxy Quest

This is a quote from a very funny movie, but I'm going to try finding a little more meaning to it lol. I think it shows that no matter what job you are responsible for, you have the choice to do it to the best of your abilities. Even if it might seem insignificant or small, you can still put your best effort into doing it well.

I'm glad I read this entry *after* I just finished calling for visiting teaching reports! I'm responsible for getting five companionships' numbers each month -- and I HATE doing it, even though it shouldn't be that hard to just make a few phone calls.

Anyway, I agree -- it always feels good to accomplish the tasks you're expected to do.

I absolutely agree. It's hard sometimes when you keep doing the small tasks over and over to feel like its significant. But we need to remember that to our Heavenly Father, it IS significant. Helps give us that extra little nudge to keep going. Ok, maybe it gives me that extra nudge. ;)
