T G I F… funny how we all know what that means: Thank God It’s Friday! I don’t really remember when it happened but at some point in my life I began to look so forward to Friday. Maybe it was because Friday was the night you’d get to have sleepovers with your friends and possibly go to the high school football or basketball game even though you were just in middle school. Friday meant you could stay up late because Saturday mornings were for sleeping in (we didn’t have Saturday morning sporting events when I was little- Praise God!) Friday’s were typically pizza lunches at school and dinner out at Bonanza or the Western Steer. The best part is, Fridays just got better and better as I got older. People, there is just NOTHING like Friday night high school football, whether you’re a cheerleader, band member, part of the team or just a fan in the stands. Even now I’ll hear a certain song or cheer and be instantly transported to the sidelines at Central High School in Carrollton, Ga. There was just so much to love about Fridays growing up!
I still love Fridays but for different reasons. I get to see my Friday morning girls at Bible Study. I get to stay up as late as I want because I can sleep in Saturday morning. There is high school football in the fall and high school basketball in the winter. Plus, now that I’m grown I get to choose the restaurant and there is always a good Mexican place with hot cheese dip!
Hmmmm….. now that I think about, Fridays really haven’t changed all that much. Maybe that’s what I really love about Fridays, they make me feel like I did when I was kid. Well except for the fact that Dad no longer gives me a twenty as I’m walking out the door to pay for everything… oh, well you can’t win them all. TGIF people… TGIF!!
