Supper is over. The dishes are washed and put away. The kids have had their showers and settled down watching TV and reading. The animals have all been fed and settling down for the night. William and I talked on the phone about our day. Got the house picked up for the day. I actually have time to watch TV, read, write, or just sit and talk with the grands. I just love Sunday evenings! I remember as a child looking forward to Sundays. After church we would have a big meal and then play outside all afternoon. Mother would call us in to take our baths and put our pj's on so we could settle down in front of the TV with soup and sandwiches to watch "The Wonderful World of Disney". My sister and I would have pillows and be laying on our tummy on the floor. My brothers would be sprawled out on the sofa. Mother and Daddy had their own chairs. Didn't matter what was going on in the world or in our family. For that little while each Sunday evening all was right with the world. In the rush of our lives we forget to take time to just relax and enjoy each other. We don't have to hop in the car to go somewhere. We don't have to spend a lot of money on toys or games to entertain each other. We just need to take time to sit, relax and just enjoy the moment. What wonderful memories are you making with your family?
