I love family traditions for the same reasons….they give me a feeling of contentment. Thanksgiving dinner at the house I grew up in…complete with the jellied cranberry sauce, and Mom's mashed potatoes. Christmas Eve at my in-laws with generosity and love spilling all around. Christmas Day here at home where our kids relax in their pajamas and family pops in at a casual pace.
I thoroughly enjoy Saturday morning chores and Sunday morning's slow start with warm muffins and CBS Sunday Morning. Perhaps it's the routine that I love,or the people or the places. Perhaps it's the feeling I get. Some would say "same old, same old" and equate that with BORING! I say quite the opposite. Familiarity allows me to breathe!
