How Do You Know You Love Something?

 How do you know when you love to do something?  I thought about that as I painted this morning.  I only had a brief amount of time before I had two all-day commitments ahead of me. 

Here is what I decided:
  • You love to do something when other "important" things such as housework, or other hobbies take a back seat.
  • You love to do something when you have over 100 paintings taking over your entire home and you think you need to paint just one more.
  • You know you love to do something when you look at the clock and realize 3 hours have gone by and it felt like 15 minutes.
And...you know you love somebody more than something when you give all of your effort to make a nice home for your family and you spend hours and hours trying to be the best parent you can be to the point that you don't have the time or energy for that "other something" that you love.  For every thing there is a season.

This was my entry in the Rookie Painter Challenge
