Frankly, fashioning frippery gives me time to think.
Yesterday, I thought about what I heard on radio talk back.
That, the happiest people are those in service.
Sorry, no source to reference.
This got me thinking about proving this thesis.
Some years back, my favourite support staff at the chalkface,
when thanked for something, used to
always say, smiling, that she was,
'happy to be of service.'
Another administration worker who had retired, bumped
into me and enquired, 'Are you still in the service?'
I am happy to be.
While fashioning this velvet camellia headpiece
I started thinking about last week's apple pie lesson
with the junior workers.
Service includes: setting up the kitchen for 22 workers, sourcing the groceries
and sorting out the clean-up aftermath.
Thankfully the Teacher Aide was in-service this day.
I only see these workers twice a week, so there's not time
to waste. A bit of Youtube how-to later and a practice making pastry
the week before saw this extravaganza creativity.
Are you of service to anyone? In addition to family?
What do you think about this notion?
Does it make people happier?
If you have those 'in service' working for you, how
do you manage?
Time for a nap.
I'm grateful that I am in the service.
