When is Contagious Not Related To A Disease?

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration in church Sunday at River Bend Church led by our creative arts team.  What a heartwarming music extravaganza! 

We all were inspired to give thanks for what we currently have and what will come in the future. Carton Dillard exuded such enthusiasm and energy while leading the creative arts team...his manner was infectious and downright contagious!  His arms were pumping and waving with such force you could feel the musicians and singers respond to his movements and direction. I thought of the defensive team coordinator for UT: Will Muschamp.  He runs back and forth on the sidelines and sometimes on the field constantly shouting plays and directions to his football players.  He is in the game with them and they are acutely aware of his expectations. 

What do they have in common?  Their exuburance for life and their job!  Both display such a strong love for what they do it is downright contagious!  

Do you display this kind of passion for your work?  If not why and how can you bring yourself to that level of committment?

Dorie - Might Carton Dillard be related to you?  :)  You're right - "contagious" isn't always about a disease.

Russell,

I didn't know you were a member either! It is a great place to call "home." We always feel our Sundays are complete with Dr. Dave!

Hi Dorie, I tend to be more low key -- people would worry if I started waving my arms and/or running down the halls.  Funny story though, we had a manager at the Title Company who behaved that way LOL!!  I love the idea of enthusiasm and joy being contagious!  I don't mind being infected, but I don't think I'm a carrier!  Happy Thanksgiving Dorie!

Hi Mary,

We all display our enthusiasm differently and some are just more jubilant than others! Have a wonderful holiday!
