My favorite day of the year
The last Saturday in October gives me the impossible, the unattainable...the thing money can't buy. More time. One more blessed hour.
One more hour to snuggle with my kids and husband and watch a movie, staying up later than usual.
One more hour to sleep in!
One more hour to get things done in the morning (on Sunday, if I've "fooled" myself and haven't turned the clocks back when I went to bed).
And, on top of that, a bright, shining, sunny morning the next day at the same time it was dark and cold the day before!
I love Daylight Savings Time. I'm thinking Hallmark ought to start a campaign to make it another holiday! Just think of the cards they could come up with:
Happy Birthday! You get one more hour to celebrate tumbling over the hill!
I love you twenty-four hours a day...but this weekend, I love you twenty-five!
Time passes so slowly when we're apart...it seems as if there's an extra hour in the day.
Okay, so I write novels, not greeting cards...but you get the drift. I'm sure there's a passel of people out there who can come up with something better, so lay it on me!
The only thing I hate about it is that dreary weekend in April...when we have to give it back!
So...what do you do to take advantage of that annual, blessed hour?
