When a holiday is a Monday…. It’s like a gift to Sunday.
Sundays are practical days, things to do days. While I can sleep in, it’s not indefinite. There are timelines and clocks and a week ahead to prepare for. There is grocery shopping and cooking and money to reconcile and putting things in place for the coming week. So that Monday I can wake up bright and early and go to work. And work. And work when I get home.
But when a holiday is a Monday, Sunday gets to take the day off. It’s the grace of an extra day. A day to relax and another day to play. To breath a little easier and not have to do anything. Sunday gets to be the fun day; the let’s do the things we never think about doing day.
Let Monday be the practical one this time around.
