I woke up to sunshine peeking through my window this morning and the sounds of children playing. No school today and many are off work as here in America we celebrate labor day. “Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.” So every year we celebrate with cookouts and those last minute trips to the beach. It’s the unofficial end to summer even though we still have well over a month of warm weather remaining before the cool weather gets here.
This year I’m down on the Georgia coast helping family prepare for a hurricane. Boarding up windows, tying down outbuildings and moving important things to higher ground. Nature has a way of reminding us just how powerful she can be. It’s the season we’re in. So when storms come, take care of yourself and protect those you love. It’s these moments that remind us what the important things in life really are.
