Fridays and Good Friday Memories by Mae Clair

What do you love best about Fridays? For me it’s the adrenalin rush of knowing the week is coming to a close, that the weekend is right around the corner. Friday is the equivalent of the day before you leave on a vacation. A perpetual high.

Good Friday is a bit different, somber. When my mother was living, we often attended services together for Stations of the Cross. It’s one of my wonderful memories of her, just the two of us together on Good Friday afternoons.

To kick off this particular Friday, I’m visiting with Sarah Ballance on her blog. Naturally, I’m talking about creatures and cryptozoology in honor of my novella, SOLSTICE ISLAND.  If you’re out wandering around the blogosphere and have a moment to spare, drop over and say hello.

Whatever your plans may be on this Good Friday—whether a moment to attend church and share in the stations of the cross, or simply to rejoice over the coming weekend and the Easter Holiday—I hope your Friday is all that you desire it to be!

  1. Happy Easter Mae! What a lovely memory, and one I’d like to create for myself. I am of a family of five girls, all of us seeming to vie for the attention of my mother at this point in our lives. There was a time when I was overseas when we spoke rarely, once every couple of weeks, but I’d love to have just a mother-daughter day, her and me.


    • Hi, Cd! My mom and I had a really close bond. I’ve got two older sisters and an older brother, all of whom had special relationships with my mom. My mom spent most every Saturday together from the time I was in my 20s until I was in my mid forties. It was our weekly “girls day.” I’m so thankful for the times we shared. Grab some mother/ daughter days, or even girls’ days with all of you. They are something to treasure! Happy Easter!
