A day of rest, Labor Day. Normally on Labor Day, we go to the park, feed the ducks then come home for a backyard BBQ picnic... after which we'd go swimming, watch a movie and would be lazy the rest of the day... which may or may not include an afternoon nap. I look forward to this day... this weekend. I make sure all the fixings for the backyard BBQ picnic are done... and that everything around the house is done... so I too have a day of rest.
But, this year, because Rainee hasn't been feeling well the last couple of days... feeding the ducks and swimming are out and a full day of recharging our batteries with taking it easy! Rainee wasn't happy last night when we talked about this... but, she also wants to feel better... so relaxing, staying home it is... not that it isn't normally about taking a breather, but today will completely be about putting our feet up, eating, taking a nap, watching movies and making sure Rainee feels better. This may not be the day I had planned... but what really matters is Rainee getting well and being together. So today, I'm grateful to be able to enjoy a day without having to be somewhere or do something... for one more day together with my family and Rainee hopefully feeling better at the end of it... and for rest... rest is good and I'm grateful for another day to enjoy it. Happy Labor Day!
