Labor Defined


On this Labor Day let’s agree to make living a little easier?
Labor — by definition is hard. Labor is NOT Life. We seem to have forgotten that. Labor has to do with the physical work of fixing, industry, delivering a baby.
Labor is not living. It is a process to help us live. When you begin to be hard on yourself — remember to LIVE and LOVE!
Have a restful and Blessed Day!
Much love, Karen
