Today is Labor Day...

Today is Labor Day, and I don’t expect bloggers to be out in huge numbers checking their blogs.  You will probably be eating potato salad, grilled stuff, and visiting with family.

This blog is to recognize all the people (or as many who flit through my brain) who will be working like they do all the time.  These people are the backbone of communities.

Farmers and all people who work the earth to supply people food.

Truck drivers and all  who move products from one place to the other.

Doctors, nurses and all people in medical professions

Parents and grandparents and anyone who cares for a child’s needs

Firemen, policemen, EMT professionalsGod bless you!

There are so many other people who dedicate their lives to helping others and who do not take the day off because it is a federal holiday, Labor Day.  I am sure you know more who could be added to this list.  Feel free to honor them as well.

  1. Yes indeed, and even all those folks manning gas pumps and restaurant counters and serving up food at labour day celebrations.

  2. I agree. So many times the girls and I have had to go it alone to important functions- or carry on the holidays without The Husband because he is working. (He's a cop) Now that they are older, the kids realize that their Dad would of course, rather be with them on Christmas morning, or on Thanksgiving, but he has a job to do. But when they were really little, it was much harder for them to understand why Daddy wasn't there.

  5. Is Labor Day the same right across the USA?
    Here in Australia, according to my diary calendar, Labour Day is October 7th for Canberra, New South Wales and South Australia, on March 11th for Victoria, March 4th for Western Australia, May 6th for Queensland; Tasmania and the Northern Territory don't appear to have Labour Day at all. Other holidays are also different dates from state to state. I have no idea why this is, but it seems silly to me.

  7. Today people work longer hours with less appreciation, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

    I work now for no salary and have never been happier at a job.
