A #LaborDay reflection honoring #women:
Today I'd like to honor the sisters/sistahs who labor tirelessly to keep the wheels turning.
From working 2 to 3 jobs as a mama trying to make ends meet to staying up all night to bake cakes so the PTA or the church house can meet their budgets, what would we do without hardworking women?
It's work just walking out into the world as a woman, as our work is expanded by all of the additional expectations of bosses, coworkers, clients, customers, patients, and students. We get one paycheck although we have multiple assignments.
Even if we have one title or job description, the assumption is that we'll always serve as ex-officio members on everyone's committee or team! If we are students, we become the instructors on life for those sitting near us.
So today, whether you are working on your entrepreneural endeavors, finishing out your shift, or sashaying around your house in a caftan, I salute your labor.
I salute your rising early in the morning and being the last to go to bed.
I salute our labor.
I thank #God for our gifted hands and righteous minds that make ways out of know ways.
I salute you, �� woman.
In Power and Perseverance,
