I think we need to extend the name of this Holiday. Instead of just Labor Day, it needs to be FRUITS of OUR LABOR Day.
Let’s face it. Most of us will still be laboring on Labor day. If you’re a mom, you’ll be taking care of your kiddos. If your self employed (like us), you usually still work holidays. If you’re an athlete, you probably are still training (laboring). If you are a bum, well, good job, you’ve mastered your laboring by just sitting there. I kid, I kid.
Anyway, my point is this. Today we need to RECOGNIZE the FRUIT of our LABOR. Be thankful for it. And as corny as it sounds, EMBRACE it.
You’re probably better at this LABOR than you think. In fact, your fruit is probably EXQUISITE! Can I get a slice of that? hahahaha.
So here goes. I’ll start.
Today I walked in the gym for yoga and ended up having to sub a strength class. Improv outdoor strength is what I like to call it. LOL.
I labored. I had fun. I was silly.
And the fruit? Well, it came from the ladies who showed up and accepted this challenge. They showed such strength, motivation, and just plain FUN-NESS. No that’s not a word, but I am going to make it one.
Today I will also be in the kitchen. Laboring some Healthy Bites that need to be sent out tomorrow. The fruit?
Getting to share my passion. Getting to feed good food to others. Heck, even FRUIT based Healthy Bites. If that’s not some fruits of labor than I don’t know what is. Clever, I know.
And when the day is almost done, I’ll labor a little more. Making a meal for us to enjoy. Maybe I’ll get crafty in the kitchen. Maybe I’ll keep it simple. Either way, the fruit comes when the hubs and I get to sit down and share a meal together. Fruitful conversation (well, most of the time), fruitful quality time together, fruitful appreciation of each.
