As we prepare to celebrate another Labor Day, I find myself thinking about everything my grandparents instilled in me about work. I was always reminded that job excellence was the highest form of gratitude I could demonstrate.
As we all know, there was a time when an African-American women like me, could only dream of having a full-time job with benefits and paid holidays. Of course there are days when I am ready to leave the building and retreat to the comfort of my home, but it does not take me long to realize just how fortunate I am.
I came across a quote from someone whom we all admire that I would like to share.
All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance,
and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
