|My 15 year old favorite beach shoes|
As a child raised in a home that only considered holidays, Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter, Labor day was the day before school started back in session.
As I grew older, it meant going to the beach at Tybee Island Ga. if I could find someone to take me... As a married adult it meant a Day off from work, unless I was working retail and that mean total chaos from Labor day Sales.
The last 13 years of my working days, I had 7 Holidays and 30 days paid vacation. A big change from over a hundred years ago, when employees were worked 10 and 12 hours a day, 7 days a week... Labor Day was to be a day of rest and to honor those who worked.
I worked, I earned, I retired... below words of wisdom have allowed Bob and I to honor the workers and enjoy our play time days. The first quote I borrowed from Ann at SnapEditScrap post today.
