Born Yesterday

“We already know how to work. It’s not like I was born yesterday,” my daughter told me with her nose all wrinkled up when I tried to explain the importance of doing chores. I fought back a smile wanting to tell her, you are absolutely right, Miss Maddi, you were born a whole six years ago…that should make you an expert by now at doing the dishes!

For all those who labor, I wish you a day of rest on Monday. Let all your “little experts” load the dishwasher for you! Take a minute to renew yourself with something meaningful and with something mindless. We need both reflection and relaxation to say goodbye to summer and welcome the fall.

Have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!
