My Labor Day Tribute

To those who labor outside the box, so to speak. Not the union workers in the factories. But, the farmers.

Who work 365 days a year with no overtime or benefits or sick days.

Add to them, our first responders.

And those who work outdoors year round. Like our roofers.

There are so many people who work days. nights, and weekends. This holiday doesn’t just honor the 9-5 crowd. It honors all of those who put in their hours and beyond, to make our lives a little easier.

Thanks to all of them.

About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
