Responsibility is enjoyable - discuss

From Empire Falls my current reading material, written by Richard Russo.

At St. Catherine's, Miles came to understand that responsibility could be enjoyable. He wasn't sure what he felt there in the warm church, with the day dawning outside, was exactly a religious experience, but he enjoyed the cadence of the Latin Mass and often was jolted out of some reverie just in time to ring the bell at the consecration.

I kind of wish he had written more specifically about responsibility itself actually being enjoyable, rather than what he did, but the quote still struck me as profound. This will be my thought for the day.

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
