Sunday’s Best

How do you spend your Sundays? For many people Sunday’s have different meanings. For some it’s a day of rest, other’s it’s a another day. Some people work on Sundays.

When I was a little girl for us Sunday’s meant family time, we would start it off by going to church then after service we spent the day as a family, We could not go and hang out with our friends because Sundays was family, mom would prepare a nice dinner and we girls would be playing in the family room or helping mom set the table.

The moment we say down at the table we gave God thanks for the day and then mom and dad would ask each of us girls what we learned in church today.

After dinner was over we would read or play games as a family, at first I never understood why we could not play with our friends but once mom and dad explained it to us, I saw the reason and understood. My parents wanted us kids to know the value in spending time with family,

In our culture today we have gotten away from the family values, we aren’t spending that quality time like we should. Life comes and goes but family is a value that none of us can let die. I thank my parents for the valuable lesson, and it’s that same lesson I passed on to my daughter.
