Labor Day has been a pretty significant day in my adult life. This year was no different.
After working seven days a week since early March, my wife and I took some much needed (and deserved) time away last weekend. We visited two of our closest friends at their home on the Jersey Shore in Ocean Heights. It was a glorious weekend of perfect weather and great fun. We spent time paddle boarding, bike riding, long walks, hanging out at the beach, swimming in the ocean, eating, drinking (you might notice in the video), and just relaxing in a way I haven’t been able to do for so long.
I couldn’t have enjoyed the time away had Podiatry not been so good to me….and I started Podiatric Medical School 30 years ago this week!
Labor Day has even greater meaning to me. During orientation for Podiatry School, I met my wife, who was a classmate. Our first date was on Labor Day in 1990. I proposed to her on Labor Day 1993 and celebrated her acceptance with many of our Scholl classmates that evening.
The time away provided me with a chance for reflection and an opportunity to share some of that with you in this week’s video.
Have a great week.
