Labor Day

May you know your work has value.

Dear One,

These are magnificent photos, evoking beautiful thoughts and memories of a softer time.

The eyes have it.

Much love,

Amen. We - the worker bees. We are valued. We all work and work and work. The birds, bees, butterflies and "we". I'll keep repeating that to myself.

Lovely photos and brilliant thought.

I just love your buckeye butterfly shots! They are such butterflies and I hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Dear Sprite,
In my Animal Speak book I read that the Cardinal is telling us, "our work has value". I was pleased the juvenile Cardinal came to the back Dogwood while my son and I were visiting on the deck. All of us have work to do and what we do does have value. Sometimes we forget to honor the labor of others.

Dear Mary,
I really like the way the bee hive is dependant on each worker and each job. I also like the way the forest depends on each species. It seems to me that everyone has an important role to play. We are all jewels in the garden.
I value you; I value your work.

Dear Mon@rch,
The Buckeye is a gorgeous butterfly. While on vacation I saw a few Blue Morpho butterflies. They are beautiful. With their wings closed they have many "eyes". I saw all sorts of tropical butterflies. Each of them made me gasp. Back home I saw that the butterflies that come to my backyard are also very beautiful! People in the tropics that have never seen a Buckeye would gasp at how beautiful they are. Being gone helped me to appreciate, even more, what is in my own backyard.
Holiday was good, coming home is good too.

Dear chris,
It is easy to forget our work has value. The bother of getting up early and getting to the work place can be so tiring. It always seems as if there is too much work for too little pay! But your work does have value. Even when it does not seem like it, remember every time you put a bit of joy out there, in any form, it is adding to the joy of the world!
You add joy to my world all the time!
Thanks for enjoying the Buckeyes!
