We labor with our hands.
We labor with our bodies.
Mothers labor to bring new life into the world.
Artists labor to create.
We all labor to live.
To labor simply means to work, to put forth an effort both with our body and with our minds. And while laboring is indeed a Good Thing, for we labor to produce results, sometimes, we all need a break from our labors. A time to rest; a time put those labors on hold. Now, it’s easy to stop working. You simply put down your tools, whatever they may be, and walk away for a bit. It’s harder to stop the laboring of your mind, but even more important that we do, for our worries can tire us more than the labors of our body. And unlike the labor of our hands, the worried laboring of our mind only produces more worried laboring.
So this Labor Day, concentrate on the labors that bring Good Things.
