Living for Friday

I work full-time Monday through Friday so I am as guilty as anyone for the TGIF mindset. So often my co-workers and I play the countdown to Friday game. “Only 2 more days until Friday, et cetera .” Or sometimes we play the wish game. “I wish today was Friday.” While I understand the sentiment I generally don’t subscribe to that thinking.

Reflecting even for this week I would have missed many things if I didn’t stop and appreciate each day.  I would have missed meeting my new neighbors and discovering she and I have quite a  few things in common. I would not have been able to spend time with my son, enjoying his visit as well as the conversations we had.  Having the ability to see the deer, red fox and rabbit as Kibbles and I get our exercise with the evening walk.Seeing the 9 children in their adorable costumes coming to my door for their treat.   Being able to have the mother reminisce about her son, only to discover the reason for the past tense-he had passed away defending our freedoms. The pride and love in her eyes is truly something I will never forget.

This Friday night brought a visit from my daughter and son-in-law so it was special. Fortunately for me so was the rest of my week. Here is to stopping and enjoying each day for what it may give us.

  1. I can honestly say that being the mother of a disabled child has taught me to appreciate each and every day, and not try to “hurry anything”, but just let life happen one day at a time. So glad you are seeing the importance of “stopping to smell the roses…” Everyday is a gift, and should be appreciated to fullest…… Great Post!

  2. Found you on the NaBloPoMo roll…and yes. I’m guilty of this and have as of late been making it a daily practice to appreciate the moments. I was in some training this past week and the moderator said that most days are filled with approx 20,000 moments, and the sum of those moments tell if it was a good day or a bad day. I’m working on being conscious for all of those moments and making them count! Bravo to you!

      Thanks for stopping. That is an interesting statistic-20,000 moments. I know I probably use only 5-10 to decide. Hope you will stop again. Thanks for your comments
