Writing Stories of Love, Faith and Happy Endings While Enjoying the Journey

I Wish It Was Friday

Leave a comment

Most of us love Friday.  Some people live for Friday, going through their week dreading each day until Friday rolls around.  For many, knowing they have two days away from the grind, is what gets them through their week.

The anticipation of the upcoming weekend always creates a buzz of non-stop chatter in the office on Friday, unlike Monday morning, when it seems painful for your co-worker to grunt a ” good morning” to you. On Friday, co-workers share their weekend plans and often take a longer than usual lunch at their favorite restaurant.  It’s always on Friday when people bring donuts to the office, rarely on Monday.

It seems like people are nicer on Fridays.  You’re standing in line at the grocery store and the person in front of you notices you have fewer items, they let you go ahead. You’re driving down the road and you realize you’re in the wrong lane to make your turn, the car next to you graciously allows you over. Why do we let the day of the week determine whether or not we’re in a good mood and more importantly, how we treat each other?

My favorite quote in my high school yearbook was, “I wish it was Friday”.  Growing up, my mother used to say, “You’re wishing your life away”.  Of course, being a teenager, I didn’t have a clue what she meant, but I do now.  Life goes fast and we need to enjoy every day, not just Friday and the weekend.  Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to bake some cookies to take to work, because tomorrow is Friday!
