20 Fridays until Christmas. Seriously? I just saw this post on Facebook. 20 Fridays until Christmas?! What was that post supposed to motivate me to do? Panic? Shop? Bake? Laugh perhaps? Let’s see, what did it make me do? It made me think. In 20 Fridays I wonder what I could accomplish. I could start now and do a bit of Christmas prep each Friday and be ahead of the game come December 25th (which actually IS a Friday.) Or, I could spend each Friday doing the Spring cleaning I intended to do in the Spring. Maybe I should spend the next 20 Fridays working on the New Years Resolutions that have fallen by the wayside. I could learn a language, take a class, learn to paint, start exercising.
But what will I really do with the next 20 Fridays? I’ll live. Yes, I’ll spend the summer Fridays preparing food for the weekend at the River, the fall Fridays will be full of finishing up the school week and ferrying kids to football and soccer games, Thanksgiving will come and I will stress over there only being only 3 Fridays until Christmas. (Wow. Only 3 Fridays between Thanksgiving and Christmas and Black Friday definitely won’t count for Christmas Prep.)
So, instead of stressing or even pondering any longer how many Fridays are left until Christmas, I think I’ll just live through the rest of This Tuesday, This Wednesday, This Thursday and try to fully ENJOY This Friday and every other Friday until December 25th.
Thanks Facebook friend for giving me this thought. Happy Friday….oh, and Merry Christmas in case I run out of time to wish you that later!
