Happy Labor Day Sparkfam! I pray you are finding some time to put your feet, enjoy family & friends, food & the day period. I have been up & running since 9am but I am relaxing while I spark. I cooked breakfast, grits, scrambled eggs, hash brown o'brien, parker house sausage, bacon & wheat toast. It was really good & now I won't eat all the chicken & burgers. lol

I guess my real Labor Day was yesterday at my cousins close out bbq. She had family, friends & co-workers come out & enjoy food & drinks & treats. I mean, she had ribs, rib tips, hamburgers, hot dogs, brats & turkey burgers. She had old fashioned baked mac & cheese, spaghetti, potato salad & fruit salad. She also had wines & spirits but the icing on the cake: caramel cake, 2 apple pies, a oreo pie, butter cookies, birthday cupcakes, brownie cupcakes & the list goes on & on. I stayed within my means, I had a cup of fruit, tried one of the butter cookies, I took a bite & just gave the rest to the dog. I also had a bottle of water.

So how appropriate is my sparkpicture today for Labor Day. I want you all to find a few moments to get in touch with yourself & your purpose today. It shouldn't be hard & the end of summer always bring us to new beginnings, a new school year, a new home project or new workout. What are you inspired to do today for your life?

Me, I would love to go back to school in the next 6months, a few home improvement projects & doing the px90 series.

God bless & enjoy everyday!

    Today is independence day here in Brazil, but we have a different tradition. On July, 4, is summer on USA and you can bbq, picnic, etc... We are in winter days and it's raining. We can be patriots, sure, but not entirely happy. Brazil can forgive me but I do prefer your Labor day... emoticon

    Thanks for the blog and reflection... I would love to redecorate my apartment within the next year, get Cathe STS series and the Bowflex dumbbells and start a health blog about women with breast cancer, nutritional/fitness information as well as prevention.

    Sounds like you had a great time at the bbq... emoticon ... being with family and friends is great... I don't have much family and my son is with his dads (... my ex-husbands) family this weekend, so I stayed home with my fur baby Jazzi. looked at movies and cooked some... and that's ok... it is what it is, and I know it could be worse, so I am not complaining... but I do miss my family and the holiday get-togethers...

    Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week...
