Happy Grateful Friday! I’m so glad that it’s Friday. I really look forward to Fridays. I have always looked forward to Fridays. Friday holds so much significance to me. It means that I have survived the week. This weekly bog post is another reason for it as of late. Well especially this weekly post. It keeps me grounded. But the main reason I look forward to Friday is because it means……..IT’S THE WEEKEND! I have looked forward to the weekend ever since I was a little girl and knew what the weekend meant. The significance changed for me over the years. When I was a child it meant that I knew my dad would be home and if my mom was working she would be too. I would be able to spend time with them. As I got older my dad began to work on the weekends and sometimes I would go with him I would work and earn money. I would also hangout with friends and stuff. Now that I am an adult the weekends means spending time with my family and finding new adventures. We like to do a variety of things. As my kids get older and I know pretty soon they will be leaving the nest. My daughter will be going to college in the fall. They are already doing their own things with school activities, friends, and expressing interests in wanting to work. So sometimes the weekends are just my husband and I hanging out until time to pick up the kids. I so appreciate when I have my husband to myself even though I don’t might sharing him with the kids. What I’ve always loved about the weekend is the chance to sleep in. If the kids, The Husband, or I don’t have any plans we will sleep in. Sleeping in has changed a bit though. Now for some reason I can only sleep in until 8:30 but it s way better than getting up at 6.
What do you love about the weekends? What are you grateful for?
