“There is no higher religion than human service. To work for the common good is the greatest creed.”
~ Albert Schweitzer ~
I enjoy doing things for other people. I enjoy knowing other people are happy. I enjoy seeing gratitude in their eyes and experiencing their hugs of thankfulness.
Some people need to restrict how much they do for others and begin doing more for themselves. I, on the other hand, am happy and pleased with my service for others because I used to only be a taker. For years, as a practicing alcoholic, I would walk away with all someone could give me and only thank them because I wanted to return for more!
In sobriety, I am beginning to change this. Now I am giving and enjoying it.
God, the gift of service is a precious gift.
