Every Friday evening is anxiously awaited by all. It starts the weekend mood. Minds begin to hover in advance with pleasant memories. Saturday always comes with cool memories of relaxed life. Here is an incident that would bring smile on your face.

Weekend joy

Weekends bring joyful moods!

Saturday always comes with cool memories of relaxed life. It makes you relaxed from your morning tension and slow down your daily chores.

While I was in India, one of my neighbors used to beat his drum (music instrument) early in the morning and disturb my pleasant sleep of Saturdays. One day I got irritated and asked him why he was doing that and disturbing all. He got shocked and asked pardon for what had happened. He actually enjoyed his hobby of beating his drum and he was thinking that others also will enjoy that.

It was not his mistake. It was my mistake that I could not enjoy such a sweet music. After that incident, he did continue his hobby but was very careful not to disturb his neighbors.

A Saturday lesson

He taught me a great lesson. Saturday is to enjoy and also to make others enjoy. From that time onward, I always enjoy "Saturday joy" of beating drums. I do not mean just beating a music instrument drum; but doing a good to others and making them happy.

The Free Dictionary defines the idiom "beating the drum" as "beat the drum for someone or something means (Figuratively) to promote or support someone or something. (As if one were beating a drum to get attention.) I spent a lot of time beating the drum for our plans for the future."

Let us share joy

Doing something good for others may be a "Saturday joy of beating our drums". Monday through Friday we work for earning for our livelihood. The Weekend is meant for relaxation. It is meant for finding joy in social life.

This post of mine was published in a site sometime back. It made others find joy in promoting my posts and they said that it was their "Saturday joy". I love that idea of Saturday joy. Hence, I share this Saturday joy with you all.
