Happy Labor Day!

Today is the day we honor our workforce, everyone who works to keep America going!  Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894 and is always celebrated the first Monday in September.  Unfortunately some of you may have to work or be on call today– Thank you!  Hopefully the rest of you can kick back and enjoy your family or a favorite hobby.

Today is also often considered the “unofficial” end of summer.  It might be a day to enjoy those last rays of sunshine and have a picnic outdoors.  Or a day to clean up the patio to prepare for fall and winter.  Or clean out things to get ready for a yard sale or get the kids organized for school.  No matter what you do today– have a fun and safe holiday!

Happy National Dog Day!

Happy Middle Child day!

As the mother of three children, I am very aware of the “middle child syndrome.” As a result, I probably go overboard to make sure my middle child feels loved and cherished, and today is the perfect day to express that love to the middle children in your life.
Birth order usually says that the oldest child is the leader and the youngest is the baby; this leaves our middle children without a clear identity. However, being the middle child isn’t all that bad. In fact, all throughout history there have been a number of successful middle children. Some of these include: Abraham Lincoln, Warren Buffet, Herbert Hoover, Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway, David Letterman, Judd Apatow, Brittney Spears and Bill Gates.
So today is your day middle children! Take time to cherish your role as the peacekeeper of the family and the bridge among siblings.

Admit You’re Happy Month

Did you know that August is “Admit you’re happy month?”

Happiness can sometimes feel elusive.  But it is no accident that our own U.S. Constitution said that everyone deserves “life, liberty, and the pursuit of HAPPINESS.” We are on this earth for only so long, and it is better if we enjoy being here.  So, take time this day to reflect on the things that make you happy. For me, it is dinner with my family, reading a good book and dancing to rocking music.

Everyone deserves to be happy– hope you find some happy things to do today!
