My Mom forwarded this to me today, from Linda Graham.
I thought it was a perfect Labor Day post.
My wish for you is that you always have work that is connected to your heart, and that we work together to ensure that all people find dignified and meaningful employment.
Kindle in your mind a creativity
To journey beyond the old limits
Of all that has become wearisome.
New frontiers that will emerge
As you begin to approach them,
Calling forth from you the full force
And depth of your undiscovered gifts.
Enabling you to draw from the invisible
New ideas and a vision that will inspire.
To those you work with you,
Endeavor to remain aware
Of the quiet world
That lives behind each face.
Compassionate in your criticism.
May you have the grace of encouragement
To awaken the gift in the other’s heart,
Building in them the confidence
To follow the call of the gift.
Which emerges from the mind of love
Will have beauty and form.
Of the energy of your heart
And the light of your thought.
Instead of owning or using you,
May it challenge and refine you,
Bringing you every day further
Into the wonder of your heart.
