Labor Day

For me Labor Day is the end of summer which means the end of the lovely long hot days.  I am a heat and sunlight girl. 

Out of the blue this morning I started thinking about what Labor Day celebrates.  Labor!  On the heels of this came the realization, everything I use and have was created by someone else’s labor.  Everything!  Just blew me away.  It sounds really stupid that I never really stopped to think how the things I use got here. 

I started to imagine the thousands and thousands of people using their labor to make all the things in my life.   Then is broadened to all the people in service jobs, whose labor also contributes to my ease of life.  Truck drivers, waitresses, check out people, nurses, tech people, pilots, the list is huge. 

I am awe struck and it is a humbling moment.  Without all of them I can’t do my job.  That puts it is a certain perspective. 

I want to thank everyone out there for their labor.  Your labor makes my life doable, comfortable and allows me to do my  job. 

Thank you and bless you all.   Happy Labor Day!

  1. Yes – Great reminder. I found myself that morning thanking the people working at the grocery store for “laboring” on Labor Day so I could shop.
