Labor Day Link Up 2012

by Stacey Nerdin

For many, Labor Day marks a turning of the corner from Summer into Fall – a time to spend with family, take stock, make memories, and look forward to the rush of Back To School and the holidays ahead.

How Did Labor Day Begin?

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

I suppose it only seems fitting that we celebrate the well-being of our country by spending some “down time” with the ones we love.

This year, Labor Day is bittersweet for our family as its the day my husband and oldest daughter leave to take her to college for the first time. How grateful I am for the long weekends we have spent over the years making memories as a family!

Stacey, best wishes to your daughter as she begins her college days. This weekend really is powerful in how it brings family together.

I can’t believe she’s off to college! Good luck to both of you (she’ll do great in college, I am positive….and I pray that you will not miss her so terribly). What a milestone!

Can you believe Summer is over? I didn’t want it to end!
