It’s Sunday! Finally! Growing up, I always looked forward to Fridays for dates, movies with friends, and the end of the school week. I think if you work a 9-5 job, you do too. When Soren worked out of the home, I did look forward to his work week ending on Fridays. But I love the meme on Pinterest that says something like, “TGIF! Oh wait, I’m a mom.” And it’s true, Friday doesn’t necessarily mean fun or a break anymore now that I’m a mom AND we have a home business. Kids don’t give you weekends off, and we have so much to do for our business that we typically work all weekend. So it is Sundays that I really look forward to.We do our best to observe the Sabbath day, which means no work and trying to focus on serving, worshiping, and spending time with family. In college, I tried not to ever study or do homework on Sundays, and what a day of rest those Sundays were! After working all day yesterday (Saturday), it feels good to know that I can put business ideas or orders out of my mind for a day.
Fortunately (or unfortunately), we have sick kids today so I won’t even be going to church. I teach the three year olds’ class typically, and even though I love them, they definitely make those two hours at church the most exhausting part of my week. Today I hope to start a new book, spend time with my kids, and get organized for the week ahead. And maybe a nap would be nice too!
