When I ran across this, for a minute I thought I wrote it myself. OK, not really. I can just relate so well to this. Only difference, Seventh Day Adventists worship on Saturday unstead of Sunday. My mom was a stay at home mom. My dad is an electrician running his own company since I was a child. We had popcorn and ice cream every Saturday night. When I grew up and married. Bought a house - invite both sides of the family over at the same time for holidays and bbqs and now our weekly Sunday Dinner...

I was lucky to grow up with a stay-at-home mother, something this economy rarely allows the luxury of any longer. My father ran his own business, as an electrician, so he had to work 6 days a week, which meant we didn’t have a lot of time to do family activities together. However, Sunday was always dedicated as “family day” a day that consisted of church for us girls in the morning, then a big meal with everyone around the table in the afternoon and followed up with a friendly game of Badminton in the back yard until evening.
When I bought my first house at 21 years old I took some of those family traditions with me. In the summer I would invite everyone over to my house for a barbeque and a game of Horseshoes in the back yard, and in the winter the entire family would gather at my house for holiday meals and finish the evening with a friendly game of Parcheesi. I kept these traditions going on for over 15 years and in return they have given me some wonderful memories to cherish for a lifetime.
I hope your holiday is surrounded by those you love, making wonderful memories. May you find peace and happiness this holiday season.
