What is Labor Day Really about?

According to Wikipedia Labor Day is a Federal Holiday on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the American Labor Movement and the contribution of laborers that helped to make America great.

Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer. The three day weekend is packed full of barbeques, parades, swimming in a lake, or local pool, baseball games and the end of summer trips.

For more information on the history and the founders of Labor Day you can read this article by the US Department of Labor. (I figure why reinvent the wheel when it’s already been discovered).

I’m keeping this one short today because I can and I don’t work on Labor Day. Ha ha πŸ˜‚

Have a safe and happy Labor Day.

My original article was in 2017. I did a revision in 2020 . Trying to piece together what makes a great mother can be challenging.

Sure we can take this one day of the year to celebrate our Mothers and Grandmother’s, or we could tell them all year long how much we love and care for them.

Every Mother is like a Flower. Each one is Beautiful and Unique.

Even pet Mom’s need love to. If your a pet mom this is for you also.

I hope you enjoy your day with family or by yourself, if that’s what you choose. Me, I will be going with the flow at whatever comes my way.

Happy Mother’s Day 🌼🌹🌼

Merriam – Webster defines the word sometimes as an adverb, meaning at times, now and then or occasionally.

Sometimes I really want to work for myself and answer to no one else but me. Other times, I’m stuck in the vortex of having a nine to five and doing what I’m asked to do. I’ve tried Network Marketing with many different companies. Unfortunately for me, they all ended up a bust.

So what’s an alternative choice?

I wrote a book titled, “Terror In The North Tower” which I am very proud of for my accomplishment. Due to financial reasons, I chose to self-publish my book. I will admit that I haven’t been very great about promoting it and really hitting a high sales goal.

I will never forget the feeling I had when the book was shipped to me. I was so excited to see the actual words in print! I haven’t had too many sales since 2016. I blame myself for not digging in and making it a priority.

However, I’m more determined at this point in my life to start promoting it more and work on writing the sequel to it. Many people have asked me, “Alicia, why haven’t you written the second part of your book”? I I have no excuses. I just haven’t sat down to start writing it.

I just have no motivation lately when it comes to blogging. Just look at my last posting. It was back on November 21, 2021.

Who does this if they’re really serious? I want to write. Really I do.

However it’s coming up with interesting content to keep people interested.

I have been following different things in the news, and keep certain things on my Telegram channel. My channel is geared towards Political, Truth, Q, Anon and all things Quantum.

Is this why I haven’t been writing here?

It could be. I apologize to my readers for not being here routinely.

Leave a comment please on what you want to read more of.

Hello Readers,

I’m working on a new blog post. I know I haven’t written anything serious in a while, and I have no real excuse.

This year I’m doing something different from my annual Christmas posts.

Stay tuned.

Blowing Bubbles

As I sat with my two-year-old Granddaughter outside, she wanted to play with bubbles. As I opened the bottle, I could see the gleam in her eye and the anticipation of what was to come.

As I started blowing the bubbles, she laughed and giggled, all while running after them to pop whatever she could. Shortly after that she turned to me and said, “I can do it”.

I gave her the bottle, she pulled out the stick and tried to blow on it. Tiny bubbles started to form and out they came. One by one, and two by two, off they went flying away.

To watch this child be some happy made me wonder, as adults when did we stop blowing bubbles?

The simple act of blowing a simple bubble even gave me a small bit of joy. When I asked her why she liked the bubbles so much, she replied “They’re fun”. That’s it| A simple answer.

Maybe as we grow into adults, we forget about the simple things in life that make us happy?

Please leave a comment.

Thank You

I can’t say Thank You enough for following my blog site.

I have not written lately due to other things going on, however I will be shifting my blog into something more closer to my heart soon.

Again Thank You,

My father Rev. Frank R. Agnew passed away on August 27, 1993.

I used to love watching him play the piano, sing and preach. He was loving, giving and when I had my children he was an awesome Grandfather. With Father’s Day fast approaching I thought I would share my top three picks that I think are great gifts for great Dad’s.

Number 3

Root Beer Science Kit by DYI Brewery. I realize that not every man drinks beer or alcohol. Here’s an alternative to give the best man in your life.

At just $16.00 I think it’s a great deal and a way to make some memories with Dad.

Number 2

This Members Mark Sam’s Club 4 Burner Gas Grill is user friendly and priced at just $399.00 it’s a grill of a deal.

I will be getting this for my husband this year. His friend bought one and my husband really likes it.

Number 1

Any gift that’s Handmade By Kids are number one in my book. I found this great website πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†with affordable craft ideas and more for you to do with your child or children.

My wish for you is to celebrate the man in your life with love and happiness.

Happy Father’s Dad to all the Dad’s and Grandfather’s out there.
