Love Home – It Makes Work Worth Doing

It is fantastic to have a good home life because it makes going to work worth doing. For many people the biggest joy they have in life is the ability to come home at the end of a long day and get hugs and kisses from family members. It makes all the stresses of the day seem worthwhile when you have a loving home to return to each day.

The movie The Wiz had a great song about home. One of my favorite lines from the song is, “When I think of home I think of a place where there is love overflowing.” I always think of my home that way. It is wonderful to know that no matter what my day is like, no matter how many dragons I must slay during the day, when I get home life is calm and good. I will see my husband, my children will start calling my name, the dog will jump on my legs and the car will look at me. In other words, when I get home, I am welcomed back into the sweet embrace of love.

When a person goes off to work, to earn a living, time is spent away from the comforts of home. There are people all over America who are going to work at jobs they hate or at best only tolerate. The reason they do it is for the comfort of coming home. People go off to work in order to pay for the ballet lessons, karate lessons, dates with the spouse and wonderful vacations.

It is important to make your home a warm and inviting place. A person’s home needs to be a place that is a place of refuge and safety. It is a good  mental boost and a step toward getting the right mental attitude at work. When a person realizes that the sacrifices, aggravations and drama at work paying off with a wonderful home work is more bearable. The next time you are at work and are thinking about complaining about work, remember the home your job helps pay for and get a new attitude. So, the question for you this fantastic day is when things are going bad at work, do you ever think about the good home your job makes it possible for you to have?

  1. Sometimes it is good to remember that our jobs, even when we hate them, do make all the wonderful things at home possible! Enjoy your baby, I remember when my teenie bopper was her age, 16 years ago!

  2. Now that I’m a mom, I really look forward to getting home from work. My daughters face lights up and she drops what she’s doing and runs toward me with open arms. Feels so good after a long day at work!

    Thanks for the reminder that my job pays the bills! It allows me to live in a nice apartment with a scenic view:)

  3. Absolutely. You would think that working from home would ruin that, but knowing that I can shut down the computer and go to one of my favorite spots of the house and relax really is helpful. I know all the stressful work I may be doing in my office is helping to keep the other rooms of the house paid for, special, and appreciated.

  4. This quote sums it up: “When I think of home I think of a place where there is love overflowing.” That’s what I think about my home and love it! 🙂

  5. Oh my goodness, I used to think about home and my bed and my couch all of the time when I was working in the office. Even now, after a long day out, shopping or doing errands, it’s a joy to come home and relax in my lovely space. It’s small, but it’s mine 🙂

  6. I’ll write down on sticky notes and place them in front of me of what I am working on getting at the moment, whether its an extra 200 to go on vacation or paying off a bill in full …it helps keep me focused on what needs to be done, regardless of what I’m not liking to do at the moment.
