I think sometimes I do take them for granted, but this weekend was such a relief as I pondered how wonderful it was to be here again.
I look at each day individually, they each have a set value of scheduling and planning and structure Monday through Friday. Even Saturday morning with errands and house cleaning is structured. But once Saturday afternoon hits, it's all about relaxing and taking care of myself. Whether that be spending time with my family, shopping for furilous wants, sewing all day, or going out to see local scenery - I'm grateful for the weekend to take a break from structure and responsibilities of daily living.
