Kent Nerburn sums up the importance of this Labor Day Celebration. “Remember to be gentle with yourself and others. We are all children of chance and none can say why some fields will blossom while others lay brown beneath the August sun. Care for those around you. Look past your differences. Their dreams are no less than yours, their choices no more easily made. And give, give in any way you can, of whatever you possess. To give is to love. To withhold is to wither. Care less for your harvest than for how it is shared and your life will have meaning and your heart will have peace.”
Are you fortunate enough to sport a green thumb? One of the greatest pleasures of growing a bounty is spreading it around.
If you missed Monday’s blog post, Labor Intensive it was an early reminder to celebrate our working achievements, including our summer harvest. Celebrate your labors and stay safe on your holiday journeys. And for those still sitting on the garden sidelines, remember to support your local farms and farmers!
