Happy Labor Day, America! This is a day we set aside time to be with our families to relax, enjoy picnics, celebrate the end of summer and generally just goof off instead of work. According to the Department of Labor website, the first Labor Day was celebrated September 5, 1882 in New York City. The day-off work holiday "constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country."
Well, then I have some people I'd like to thank today for their contribution to the good of our country and the success of the American way! But first, this song comes to mind...40 Hour Week, by Alabama!
I know the song is a bit old (I actually remember when it came out, though)...but it still has some great things to say! I've heard people say #ThankAFarmer, but I also want to #ThankANurse, #ThankADoctor, #ThankATeacher, #ThankABarista, #ThankALinesman, #ThankATechieNerd (who created the iPad!), #ThankAGlassmaker, #ThankADishwasherManufacturer, #ThankACarSalesman.....I think you get the idea!
There are a lot of people who make our world go around and we don't even notice them, and even less do we remember to thank them. Help me make a list....Tell me who you'd like to thank! Put it in the comments and I'll draw a random winner for $20 in Beef Bucks from the people who comment on this post! So, put each Thank You in a separate comment...and let's #ThankANewspaperEditor, #ThankAJanitor, #ThankALandscapeArchitect, #ThankALawnMowerRepairman.....
