In honor of Labor Day, guest host Rusha Sams challenges us to describe examples of labors of love in pictures.
Labors of love are often those physically demanding, difficult, repetitive jobs done by people who we often depend on for the returns their labor produces. Fishermen have a bond with their boats and with the sea, working from before the sun rises and long into the day. Farmers and ranchers connect with the soil, sun and seasons.
Labors of love are the hours spent learning to paint, sculpt, create music, to write and to craft.
Fruits of labors of love satisfy our needs, inspire us, sadden us, satiate us, bring us joy and moments of reflection.
Labors of love yield rewards that tickle our senses.
Foods from the ground and the sea nourish us and excite our sense of taste.
Labors of love add a sweet bouquet.
Labors of love please the ears.
