Rest for the weary

Happy Labor day all!  How do you celebrate Labor Day?  What is it you do?  In honor of Labor Day, a day that should be a time of rest from our work and celebration of our accomplishments, I thought I’d try to get to know you all better and find ways for us to honor our work/labor.

Yes, this is at my sister hospital:

For those of you that don’t know, I’m an ICU nurse.  I love what I do and see the “fruits of my labor” everyday.  Yes, there are frustrating days, but what we do makes a difference.  I hope you all have a great Labor Day and celebrate you!

A younger me, when it all began…

Happy Independence Day!

I haven’t heard it sung like this in a long time.  There’s something about the soul put into our national anthem, that makes you believe in it.  Our “home of the brave.”  Happy Birthday United States of America!  I’m so glad I call you home.

Independence makes me think of many different things.  I was walking my dog on the 4th of July, and I came across a wedding taking place in a park nearby.  Strange, I thought, to get married on Independence Day.  I’m curious to know what “independence” means to all of you.  Would you find it strange to get married on Independence Day?

I suppose Love and Fireworks aren’t too far apart!  I hope you’ve all enjoyed your celebrations, whatever and wherever they brought you!  God Bless America!
