Loving Mondays

I love Mondays…

You don’t hear many say that these days, do you?

As a work-from-home mom years ago, I loved Mondays too…it was a normal day at home with the kids. I worked as they played in my office. I smile as I think back to those days. We played more than I worked. 🙂 On Monday nights, I attended and eventually held my own Mary Kay Success Events when I became a sales director. Mondays were usually a highlight of my week in Mary Kay. 🙂 (I’m remembering just now how I used to talk to Mom on the phone on the way home each Monday from those events. It was a weekly thing for us. I looked forward to it…uninterrupted time with just her.) That also makes me smile.

When I became a leader in BSF (Bible Study Fellowship), I began attending Leaders’ Meetings which were and are still held on Monday mornings from September through May. It’s a beautiful couple hours of blessing for me.

I have Mondays off from the Mission, as the Mission is closed. I usually do some sort of work at home on these days, and I love that. I absolutely love working from home. 🙂 Some people don’t like it, but not me…I find it refreshing and uplifting.

I saw on facebook today a few people’s statuses, complaining a little that it was Monday. Then I saw my friend Marcia’s status…”I love Mondays!” (She has Mondays off too.) Marcia, I’m with ya’ girl. She and I texted each other a couple of times, but I’m not sure what she did with her day, but I’m sure she made it a beautiful day.

I did with mine as well…

–Breakfast out with brother Pat, Bennett & Reagan.

–Shopping (bought a new swimsuit for our upcoming vacation…a smaller size than last year! I’m a tad-bit excited about that…thanks for celebrating with me here!)

–Bill found a long-lasting spray for these pesky Japanese beetles…we sprayed it on our plants today and it seems to be working!

–I caught up on a few things I haven’t had the time to do.

–Spent some quality time with my family.

–Had a yummy and healthy dinner, compliments of my man 🙂

–Ended the day with a fresh pedicure and manicure.

Tomorrow will be an early morning…filled with my workout, watering flowers, checking on beetles, and heading to the Mission early. I might even treat myself to a Starbucks latte on the way in!

I guess, no matter what day of the week it is, we should make it a beautiful day, right? No matter if we have the day off or if we are working or whatever we are doing. I think I’ll make tomorrow a beautiful day too. 🙂

Oh, and I read a cute quote today which I loved…”Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle.” I feel a post coming on soon about that! 🙂

God bless you this Monday evening!
