The word “labor” sounds so…um, painful. And exhausting. Yet, we spend most of our days unconsciously laboring.
Laboring at the computer; laboring over what to wear; laboring over what to cook for dinner; laboring over to-do lists that never seem to get done; laboring over what people think; laboring over the state of our homes, our kids, our weight, our finances, our hair…
