Observations on Work

My sister quoted Malcom Forbes on her Facebook page this morning -- "If you have a job without any aggravations, you don't have a job."

I replied that Forbes' observation reminded me of a conversation I once had with Dad on the back patio. I was a teenager complaining about some job I had and how I didn't enjoy it or feel any sense of fulfillment.

His answer was, "Son, that's why they call it 'work.' If you had fun doing it, they wouldn't have to pay you to do it."
