A Season of Thanks - part 4

Today I am thankful for work.  Good old-fashioned work.  The philosopher Korsaren said this about work: 
If you are poor, work.  If you are burdened with seemingly unfair responsiblilites, work.  If you are happy, work.  Idleness gives room for doubt and fears.  If disappointments come, keep right on working.  If sorrow overwhelms you and loved ones seem not true, work.  If health is threatened, work.  When faith falters and reason fails, just work.  When dreams are shattered and hope seems dead, work.  Work as if your life were in peril.  It really is.  No matter what ails you, work.  Work faithfully - work with faith.  Work is the greatest remedy available for both mental and physical afflictions.
Today we built a dog house as a family.  It was frustrating at times and inspirational at times.  It was a great teaching opportunity and it was fun to watch my boys use power tools.
