19,000 a year?
And never one to let go........one more thing from the book that stays with me that I want to share. There is a chapter about thanks and appreciation. While that was not an obvious problem for me, the chapter certainly spoke to me and stayed with me. And I even had to use that tool last week when I was feeling just a little under appreciated.
The gist of the chapter is about doing for others and not being thanked. Feeling under appreciated. Whoa. You mean like changing diapers and fixing bottles and doing laundry and cleaning up 5 people's worth of stuff on an hourly basis? While either not getting paid or getting paid very little? And then you turn around and the mess is back, the diaper is dirty and it's time for another bottle?
Dale Carnegie drives his point home like this; Do things because you want to. Because another cannot do it for himself. But never do it for a "thank you."
Jesus did what he did out of love and never turned around and waited for a "thank you." (Dale's words.)
Takes doing the laundry to a whole 'nother level.......wouldn't you say?
Let me go do some laundry for Chuck. For him.
