Labor Day greetings

Traditionally, Labor Day is a day to celebrate jobs and working people -- but the message has been lost since it has become a day to celebrate the end of summer. Many use it to spend the last warm days at the beach or at the pool. I remember that it used to be the day we switched from white shoes to brown or black.

I plan to spend today planting greens, carrots and leeks in my fall garden and I might even take in a movie. I want to keep in mind how thankful I am to be among those who have a job on this Labor Day and while I am doing this, I plan to say a prayer for those who have lost their jobs because of our economy.

Have a great day. Be blessed, count your blessings and don't work too hard.
