I love this quote from Daughters in My Kingdom. It says just what I feel. I love thinking that I am part of the branch.
“If we only half do our work we will have no pleasure, if we do it from a sense of duty we will have no joy but if we feel we are a branch of this vine, and that our Father in Heaven has felt us to be worthy to be a member of that branch, and that we can carry this work when it is here to do, then we will have joy.” Louise Y. Robison, 7th General Relief Society President, RS Magazine, Nov 1933, 649. Daughters in My Kingdom, p. 70.
