Taking a moment to be Thankful

I do not think it is a coincidence that we call our jobs, “labor.” From the birth of a child to the birth of a product. Whatever your profession you are essentially birthing into existence something new.

A builder labors for a new home. A teacher developing a young mind.

A truck driver distributing goods.

A grocer selling those goods.

A police worker labors for public safety

A healthcare worker for public health.


Thankfulness wells up within me when I think of the many people who sacrifice their time, energy, and own wellbeing to keep our country safe, functioning, healthy, and free.


The US Department of Labor says that “Labor Day is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers… including contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.


This Labor Day I want to personally thank each of you.


Your Turn

Who are you thankful for this Labor Day?
