Labor Day weekend. A weekend I look forward to every year.
Not because I take Monday off. Because honestly, for as long as I can remember, I’ve worked it.
I look forward to this weekend because it wraps up the summer with a seedless watermelon colored bow. It cools the sweat stained afternoons like a cold glass of tart lemonade. It fills the belly like a burger from my backyard grill. It’s stars and stripes. Bikinis and boots. Laughter and lounging. It’s a time to celebrate family and friends and all the goodness we work so hard to support. It’s a time to kick up your feet and appreciate life for a moment.
Most of us are just happy to get an extra day off work or school. But do me a favor, and take a moment this weekend to stop and count a few blessings. Most of us are so richly blessed we don’t take enough time to stop and appreciate it all. Our lives are so full of goodness. Take a moment this weekend to reflect on all the fruits of your labor…and enjoy it.
