Monday: We Can Do This

The Apostle Paul once said, “One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.” (Romans 14:5; ESV)

I have to confess that Mondays have never been my favourite day of the week. I suspect that is true for many people. Why is that? The only answer I have is that it has something to do with Monday being the start of another work week. Unless you’re seriously loving your job, Mondays can be downers. Maybe when I retire one day that will no longer be the case. I guess time will tell.

So for now, despite the fact that I’d rather be lounging around my home in my PJ’s with a good book and another cup of coffee, I am grateful for a good job. Yes, it gets stressful sometimes, but what job doesn’t? I am grateful for the physical and mental strength to still be able to do my job. I am grateful for my health, without which I would not be able to work. I am grateful that when I do eventually retire, that a decent pension also awaits me. So much to be thankful for! Maybe it is all a matter of attitude.

So once again this morning, this Monday morning, I will go to my place of employment, and smile. Monday morning? Yes, and that’s OK; we can do this. Peace.
