Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on June 22, 2015 |

Every Monday I have the song “Monday, Monday” by the Mamas and the Papas playing through my mind. Perhaps because there is an excitement about starting a brand new week. Do you eagerly look forward to Monday’s? While most of the song is about the sadness of waking up Monday Morning alone, the first two […]
