Until I sat down to write what I did for my Sundays I didn’t even realize what I did on Sundays is because of my childhood.
For as long back as I can remember Sundays in my family has been the day that we all spend together. In our family you knew you were not to make any plans on Sunday —it was a family day. On Sundays some of us slept in late while others were up early, everyone knew they had to be up in time for brunch. Since I was an early riser I either read a book along with my other siblings who also liked to read or we’d debate about books we’d read. Lots of fun with our varying views. When everyone was awake we’d make a big brunch together, eat it then relax watching movies, playing games and talking about everything and anything. Sundays is our day we caught up on what was going on or happening in our lives. Throughout the day we would have snacks not eating too much since we knew a big fabulous dinner was coming. When it was close to dinner we would again prepare the meal together – we each had our part of the meal we did – then as we waited for those foods that took longer to cook we’d go back to relaxing with movies, games and just having fun. Once the meal was completed we ate our meal and during that time we’d discuss what the upcoming week would be like or plans we had. It wasn’t until I was older I realized it was our parents way of ensuring they knew what was going and also making each of us care about what was happening with our siblings. It is why we all are so close even to today. Even now many years after my childhood I have fond memories of Sundays spent with my parents and siblings.
As mentioned my Sunday’s now are very similar to that of my childhood. Sleeping in late on Sunday then when I wake up I then make brunch. After my meal it’s time to watch movies, read and just relax. Throughout the day there are calls my siblings, family and friends to chat with them and their families. That is the one day my phone is constantly ringing. LOL. Later the dinner meal is cooked and eaten then the rest of the time before bed I think of and plan what will be happening for the upcoming week. My siblings have also kept the tradition and do something similar as we did in childhood with their own families. Keeping the tradition of what I did in childhood is how I spend my Sundays and I love it. It revives me for the upcoming week and is a great way to start a week.
Have a happy Sunday!
