Family Traditions

I love to look back at my childhood and see what family traditions we had. I want you to pause a moment and think back to your childhood. Did your family have any traditions?

One of my favorite childhood traditions happened every Sunday. We would get up, my mother would have our Sunday breakfast, Donut Sticks, sitting out. We would enjoy the morning at our church, then Sunday dinner and a nap. Once we woke up from our nap, we began our Sunday ritual. My Daddy (yes, he is still Daddy to me!)would dip me, my brother and himself some ice cream then we would lounge around the living room while my Dad would get the Sunday paper and find the comic section and read them aloud for us. It was such a simple tradition that didn't take up a lot of time, but we loved it! My brother and myself would look forward to our ice cream and "Funnies" each week.

When I think about my favorite childhood traditions, I think about my children and how I would love for them to look back and have happy childhood memories of our family traditions. A tradition doesn't have to cost much, if anything!

My goal for the rest of the year is to set a family tradition for Sundays and stick with it. What will that tradition be? I'm not sure yet, but I will let ya'll know when we come up with one!

Challenge yourself to start a family tradition. If you like, feel free to share what your tradition is or will be!
