Happy Labor Day!
Happy Labor Day to all of you! I hope you are enjoying your extended weekend as much as we did.
I remember years ago, when I lived in Colorado, Labor Day was always the day I used as my gauge that summer was over. My mother’s cousin would always have a big family reunion in Canyon City over the Memorial Day weekend, which, for me marked the beginning of summer. These two holidays, Memorial Day and Labor Day, book-ended the summers for me.
Our family reunions became a thing of the past when my mother’s cousin passed away. And, of course, as with a lot of things that are no longer available, I miss those reunions. I never really appreciated them as much as I should have. When my children were little, it really seemed like a big hassle to attend the reunion – knowing that we were going to have to keep our little ones occupied, worrying about nap time vs. cranky time, bring baby food, etc. Looking back, what was I thinking?!? Enjoy the moment!
Getting back to my initial greeting: Happy Labor Day! I hope you all are having a restful, fun-in-the-sun type of day!
