I am taking this from Wikipedia...a bit of a paraphrase...'in most countries with a five day work week, Friday is the last day of the week giving us cause for celebration and/or relief.' However if you lived in Saudi Arabia or Iran, Friday is the last day of the weekend, Saturday being the first day of the work week. I'm guessing that I would feel a bit differently than I do today if I lived there.
In Germanic languages, Friday means the day of Freya who is the goddess of love. Similarly in romantic languages, Friday is derived from Latin dies Veneris, "day of Venus", Spanish viernes or French, vendredi and vineri in Romanian.
This goddess comes to me at a good time.
I believe in the power of the universe, providing what you need when you need it. In my life, I run into people for a reason, have conflict and strife for a reason. I believe that all events are meant to help me evolve. My oldest child. The child that has pushed me to the limits from the day he was born...not sleeping through the night until he was three. If I didn't learn patience then, he continues to provide me with opportunities. He is here to teach me patience, acceptance, and gratitude.
The power and the beauty in the mother Freya is in me. I can draw from her energy, her passion and her strength.
