Gratitude for the privilege of laboring

On this Labor Day 2011, I find myself reflective, within a lens of wide and deep gratitude, for all those who work hard on a daily basis to serve others.  On a personal basis, I am grateful for my own clients, bosses, work colleagues, professional mentors, and many others.  From a Central Texas perspective, I am grateful to the fire fighters and emergency personnel who are working around-the-clock to eradicate several horrible wildfires burning out of control, in some cases, around the great cities of Austin and Bastrop and elsewhere.

In sum, I am grateful to work, for work, and for those who work alongside me.  For those looking for work across our country, I am especially thinking of you.

Many blessings to all on this Labor Day 2011.  Melody
