Labor Day … But Work To Do

Labor Day.. the historic mark of the end of summer, one last weekend to relax and enjoy the sunny days and bbq nights. Labor Day weekend 2015 is quite a different story for me. I have been working diligently on reform. Reform in all areas of my life. It has not been easy.  But when…
