Thank goodness its Friday

Thank goodness it's Friday

Sometimes I feel I'm wishing my life away. Work has become so relentless of late
that I keep wishing for it to be Friday. I wish for the weeks to pass by until it's
time for holidays.
When it's winter I'm longing for spring, then I want the warmth of summer.
As summer wears on I welcome the colours of autumn and as the days grow dark and cold
I await the celebrations at Christmas time.
Days, weeks, seasons give way to years. Where does the time go when I'm waiting for it to pass?

Stunning, Mairead. Lately I spend the week longing for Friday, and then in an instant it's Monday morning again. I think it's a sign something needs to change, unfortunately the sign is pretty vague on what :o)

Gorgeous image to brighten up the winter. It's best not to wish for time to pass. Before we know it, it will be next year at this very same hour.

Yes, that pretty much sums up the feeling at 5pm on Friday. By 6am Monday I'm wondering where it all went though.

A nicely balanced composition with good colours.

This is simply gorgeous, bright and sunny!!! We all long for the next season or adventure, but should remind ourselves to stop and smell the daisies! V
