This week means a lot to me. Not just because of the freedom that we have been given by being Americans. But simply because I get a day off this week.
A simple day of not having to go to work and getting to do all that I want with the ones I love.
That rest is so simple yet so hard to experience. I remember last summer working about 40+ days in a row without a day off. It was worth it to work that much because my family is worth it. But it was tough. I didn’t have high stress jobs at the time (unless you can count Olive Garden in that category, which was stressful at times) but it was still hard. And this summer, I am working hard to provide for my family even better.
However, I remember the love I have for them and I cherish taking a day off this 4th of July. Just. To. Spend. With. Them.
That’s all I’m gonna do. And I hope you do too with your family.
