Happy Labor Day

As many of us spend this day as our last Summer Holiday, it’s a nice opportunity to practice gratitude for the goodness in our lives. A warm Summer day, a friend or family to enjoy the holiday with, a baseball game to watch, a hike or swim, a chance to reflect on the Summer season as the Autumnal Equinox approaches. I hope you are able to find many things for which you can express gratitude in your life.

Did you know that Labor Day originated in Canada and that Oregon was the first U.S. State to formally recognize Labor Day? Here is a brief video from TED Talks about Labor Day.
