Holiday or Busy Day?

What makes a day a “holiday” is when you make it “holy”.
We can make any day a holy one when we see our lives as Sacred.
We can make every day holy when we give our day to living Joy.
We can make each moment holy when we remember to give Love.

So what about today…Labor Day?
End of the summer for many school kids……
Last weekend of summer vacation……
Honoring the workers in our country…….

Take a moment to give thanks to those who serve you.
Give a special smile or hug to those you live with.
Say “ I love you” to someone who needs to know.
Remember to appreciate yourself for who you really are.

Take an hour or two just to relax and do what you want to do.
Sometimes reading a book, watching the US open, taking a walk, putzing in the garden.
Let it be something a little special, just for you, that brings you rest and renewal.
Remember always to really love, appreciate and take impeccable care of you.

Take some time today to value what matters to you.
Wash the car, take the dog for a walk, clean your garage and/or donate something to a good cause.
Say a prayer for our country, in times of environmental, weather and political crisis.
Now is a good time for us all to choose how we want to live and the people we trust.

Look at your ability to lead your family, friends, co-workers.
Make choices that are for the highest good of all.
Acknowledge you mistakes and learn from them.
Give your very best and keep your agreements.
Treat everyone with respect and make no assumptions about others’ character.
Give to others in times of need and help others to take responsibility for their lives.
Keep on learning and surround yourself with opportunities to expand your understanding.

We are blessed. Appreciate and Share your blessings and they will grow.

Loving you,
Betty Lue
