Labor Day Defined


Labor Day is a day when your mother-in-law, your brother-in-law, your sister-in-law, your niece, and two of your nephews come to visit you.  They watch you closely every time you have a twinge or Braxton Hicks contraction; because,  you were due on August 30th.  All day long you are under the scrutiny   watchful eyes of your family...sixteen eyes to be exact.  Labor Day ends with no labor in sight and is followed by another week and a half of non-labor days.  Finally, two weeks after your due date, the doctor takes pity on you and induces labor.  A certain little miss refuses to come out because it's warmer inside.  This results in a 9/12 rather than 9/11 birthday. 
Happy Labor Day!

  1. I had a not so drawn out Labor Day story for my first little miss, two weeks early. Happy birthday to your daughter.

Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
