There’s something about September

…. that makes me want to wish you a Happy New Year.  It’s a remnant of that old, ingrained school schedule, I guess.  But I’m somewhat out of step with news coverage.

Listening to the news reporters last night, I heard the same cautionary tales that you did – with the requisite groaning,

  • Everyone’s back in school,
  • Everyone’s back to work,
  • Vacation’s over.
  • Let’s call it Terrible Traffic Tuesday.

So why are we groaning?  Think about it – your children are healthy enough to be in school, most people have jobs, and evidently a whole lot of you had a vacation.

I think all those people in the cars that clog the highways have blessings to contemplate.  Here are some things to think about:

  • Having somewhere to go,
  • Being sometimes excited by their work.
  • Or being excited about what they might be doing next year instead.

The unemployed, the underemployed, the lonely ones would be happy to be in your traffic jam.

Ease up, you reporters.
