Welcome to Friday with Friends – and we are talking about our favorite day of the week. I’m glad for all of you that stop by – and hope that you will leave a comment and even join in the fun if you can. Before I get to my fav day…just had to share a quick story.
I was at my favorite quick stop for lunch – yes, you know the one…Chick Fil A…yesterday and I watched an interaction with a Southern older gentleman (actually he didn’t look that old but he referred to himself as “Granddaddy”) and his accent totally gave away the southern part!….and his granddaughter. She was playing with something at the table. He asked her to stop. She did not. Finally, he said firmly, “Give it to Granddaddy.” She began to complain, discuss, argue, disobey – all of the above. He said it again. And she was stubborn (as little girls can sometimes be…) I found myself rooting for this grandpa. Don’t give in.
He did not. However, he played the tough card and said, “If you do not give it to me now, I will tell your mom you do not listen to me today.” (She did….right away.) Go Granddaddy – make Mama be the bad guy – ’cause everyone knows we grandparents have to keep ’em in line but all the “reality stuff ” comes from the parents!! 🙂 And double high fives for Mom letting them know that a “bad report” when Mama gets home is never a good idea!
Here is the cutest two year old I personally know at Chick Fil A! Sure wish I could take her there myself:) Oh, and during the same lunch visit, I heard a mother calling to her wandering child…”Arizona….Arizona…come here.” Really now.
I’m all for cute – even semi-creative – names for our little ones but there just has to be a limit. And if your little sweetheart is named Arizona – I apologize ahead of time.
As for my favorite day of the week (that is why we are here, right?) Debbie left me a comment and said her favorite day was Sunday. I really like Sunday, too. I enjoy church – for the preaching, the music and the fellowship. I rarely cook on Sundays. Hubbie really likes to eat out after church – and, well, who am I to argue?
But, Chick Fil A is closed on Sunday..so I can’t pick that. Just kidding. Honestly, when you don’t “work” AND the kids are out of school, the days really start to run together. It really is not as easy to differeniate one day from the other but I know I would have to pick
And strictly because of my mild OCD tendicies toward schedule and order. I love the beginning of a new week. A completely fresh page in the daytimer. Whatever did not get accomplished last week is over and behind me. A time to start anew. I feel completely at my best on Monday mornings – yes, that could have something to do with those good Sundays and the encouragment there! But Mondays definitely win it for me!! And I really don’t have a “least favorite” day?? Like I said, they all are about the same – hey, does that mean…in my world…every day could be Monday??!!
So what about you? What’s your favorite day?
