“Thanks for All You Do”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
Ever since I was young, Labor Day has held mixed feelings for me. The next day meant the end of summer vacation and school starting – rarely a good thing for a child. It also meant a time to get together with family and friends. I particularly remember a Labor Day picnic with neighbors on the shores of Lake Ponchatrain and how school still seemed so far away on that lovely afternoon.
Now, as an adult, Labor Day is a nice three-day weekend away from work. A time to rest and usually garden. But it also a time to reflect on the meaning of the holiday. Where would we be without all the hard-working individuals that make our wonderful way of life possible? Thanks everybody for showing up for work everyday to bring us all the goods and services we usually take for granted.
