Prepent Day 13: Thank Someone Today

Last unofficial day of summer and here in the USA it’s Labor Day, honoring the labor of all the workers and all those whose dedicated work makes sure my life runs as smoothly as possible from morning commute to perfect salad and a hundred other daily blessings I rarely if ever pause to consider, let alone thank. So many people whose names I don’t know or won’t ever find out. Honor and respect at least one person today whose industry enables or improves your life. A thought: Someone out there might be thanking you, without you knowing it. I just went over to the lifeguard on the beach to say thanks, starting by first finding out her name. Thank you Summer (that’s honestly her name, I swear)!
