When I was younger to be honest I didn't love shabbos, until I started work and got a family, it is one of the best gifts in my life.

Ok, let the popcorn begin.

When you get older you will realize any day can be Shabbos.

"can be" and "are" are fundamentally different.

If the purpose of shabbos is rest, then yes. Rest whenever you are tired.

We actually have (the virtual) equivalent of Shabbos 3 times a day, during Davening.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Maybe he create a miracle; Shabbos will come out on Wednesday and Wednesday will be Shabbos!

ETA: I wonder how many people will get this reference.

But the question will always remain "When is next Wednesday".

A better question is when is the next Shabbos?

With you JJ. When I started working in the dot com boom in the late 90's Shabbos was a welcome reprieve. Especially when I hung up the phone 2 minutes before shabbos and turned it on 2 minutes after shabbos.

Now I appreciate it even more, it's the one time a week where I actually have a meal with my wife and kids.

You need to make time other than this one day.

There are many levels to Shabbos. That one is one of the more superficial ones.

That's a completely wonderful thought. I do spend quality time with my wife and children every day. But schedules as they may make it difficult to get the 5 of us at one table at one time. Other than Shabbos.
