In the United States today is Labor Day.

Which means many of us have the day off. Only in America!

Unfortunately to many of us the word “Labor” carries negative meaning; just ask my 12 year-old son.

But to me labor is what puts meaning into life – in fact is it not the beginning of life itself?

A mother is in labor before the wonder of birth.

What better example of what labor can be about?

Deep effort, even pain.

But in the end it is so very worth it.

Does your labor bring you that kind of joy?

Find some that does.
