• When: 2019-06-13
  • QIC: Recall
  • The PAX: Headgear, Cowbell, Fishwrap, 7-11, Training Wheels (R), Notebook, Utah (R), Quest, Forrest, Voltron (R), Recall

The AOQ hasn’t (totally) abandoned us!

Several of the PAX noted that the AOQ has been missing a few morning recently and in the tweet the night before, mentioned he might actually show up.  YHC threw out a little challenge, which was followed by a little Twitter mumblechatter, and the AOQ acutally did post for the Q, which made the pax smile.  Expecting the AOQ to be there, YHC had to bring a strong Q.  Solid work by all the PAX and great encouragement along the way.

“How Happiness Happens”, Max Lucado (paraphrased)

Happiness happens when we give it away. Be the family member who offers to wash the dishes after dinner. Be the colleague who serves the staff by arriving on time for each meeting and listening attentively. Be the church member who supports the pastor with prayer and notes of encouragement. Be the neighbor who mows the grass of the elderly couple. Can you imagine the joy-giving benefits of these decisions?

Contrast the situation of Moe and Joe. Moe expects everyone to serve him…Moe has high expectations of the world. He expects to be served. He expects people to cater to his plans, meet his needs, and reward him. Consequently, Moe is seldom happy…

Joe, on the other hand, measures the success of his day with this standard: Who can I help today? Since there are always people who need help, Joe is insanely successful…The world does not exist to take care of him. He exists to take care of others. Circumstances do not affect him. Joe goes to bed with a smile on his face.

Moe is unhappy and makes people frown. Joe is happy and makes people smile. Which one are you? Maybe it’s time to look at life differently. Make your happiness dependent upon how others serve you, and you will always be disappointed. Find happiness in serving others and you will never be disappointed.
