Happy Labor Day 2008!!

I always think of my Grandpa on Labor Day. He came to the United States so he could have freedom, and a good job to provide for his family. Grandpa and Grandma had eight children, during the depression, and my mother would relate on how they all worked together, including the kids, to keep their home.
My grandpa retired from Dodge Motors in Detroit many years ago. He worked hard all his life, including building several homes. We are blessed to be in America where work is readily available. It may not be the work we may want or like, or the pay what we feel we should get, but work is always around. I hope you and your families enjoy this holiday, to celebrate all the advancements of labor today and enjoy a Day of No Work!! Be safe.
