Labor Day is not usually a highly celebrated holiday.
People just kind of look forward to a three day weekend.
That, in itself, is sweet.
It's good to think that there is a holiday established specifically for American workers and that it's been celebrated for more than 100 years!
The flag in this post flies in front of the Museum of Nature and Science in Denver, Colorado.
We were there, recently, on vacation.
The museum, by the way, is one of the very best I've ever seen.
There will be posts coming up on some of the offerings so, if interested, stay tuned.
In the meantime, may all readers in the USA enjoy Labor Day from start to finish!
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THIS LABOR DAY?
Today, Sunday, may you fall totally in love with nature.
Whether it's a tree, a flower, a breath of fresh air or sunshine immersing you in its warmth, treasure it!
When feeling disappointed or discouraged, upset or tired, or worried and at your wits' end, try going outside.
Sit on the steps and look up at the trees or sky and watch the clouds skittle across the sky.
They don't have a care in the world!
Truly, Mother Nature's gifts help connect us with our Creator who fills our hearts to overflowing with the kind of peace that only He can give.
Can you spot the little Colorado groundhog in the photo at the very top of the post?
He does not worry about a thing!
WHAT, TO YOU, IS ONE OF MOTHER NATURE'S MOST PRECIOUS GIFTS?

Little Man Ice Cream, a wildly popular ice cream shop in Denver, Colorado, has served more than 1,030, 736 scoops of creamy, locally made ice cream, since July 4 of 2008.
Made in small batches, the ice cream is quite luscious.
Servers hand out the tasty confection to customers near a 28 foot tall, 14,000 pound ice cream can so it's hard to miss Little Man.
For each scoop of ice cream served, the business matches with a scoop of rice that is eventually sent to developing nations.
Little Man's is always on our "to go to" list when visiting this incredible city that offers multiples of everything under the sun!
The ice cream shop even has truly bite-sized cups, if a customer wants to ingest just a few calories instead of a whopping number!
WHAT IS YOUR #1 FAVORITE ICE-CREAM FLAVOR?
