Saturday – What a Day!

Dear Daughter

Don’t Saturday morning’s make life great? The week is behind you, and sure you got all kinds of stuff you need to get done over the weekend, but that’s what Sundays are for! Enjoy your Saturdays! There are many people out there, like your father, who work weekends; although I know that you and your brother do not consider what I do work!  Anyway, I do still enjoy waking up and knowing it’s Saturday morning and I hope that you are also attaining some happiness from that realization. Hopefully you will carve out some time today to enjoy part of the weekend before getting to your task list – especially when it’s as gorgeous as it is today. Enjoy your Saturday kiddo.
