Oops. I just posted a previous Labor Day blog from last year from Mommy's Point of View, and meant to share a new post today.
Sorry about that.
I'm a very tired mommy today recovering from a full weekend of plans with family and friends, yet with a good excuse. This year's Labor Day holiday is much sweeter indeed for us as it was this time last year when Daniel secured a new full-time job opportunity after four years of freelancing after losing his job after Sarah was born due to the volatile economy.
Today is a reminder of how thankful many of us are for the jobs we have that give us the opportunity to have the fun that we do on holidays, weekends, and other times. However, there are also millions of people who are out of work wishing they had jobs in this challenging economy and are instead anxiously trying to find work.
We all know the phrase, "take nothing for granted." We certainly do not.
This economy has indeed taught many of us that we need to be thankful for what we have and to appreciate it. Many times we need to shift our focus to different jobs or career paths to stay afloat or to grow.
So, on this Labor Day, I wish everyone impacted by this economy the strength to find within what matters most, and to embrace career opportunities that come our way and to consider new paths and directions to take care of our families.
