Introducing yet another new family member. He was adopted by DS# and his family just yesterday

To celebrate is to observe or honor an event with rituals of respect, festivity, or rejoicing.
Yesterday I celebrated DS#4's birthday. I wasn't able to be with him yet I was celebrating. I so remember the day he was born and how happy I was to have him. I do the same with all my children. I celebrate no matter where they might be.
In fact every day is a day to celebrate to my way of thinking. Each day is a gift. We don't know what the future holds so today is the important thing. I rejoice in each one as it comes.
Traditions and rituals are a part of my life. I always go to church on Sunday. I love the hour spent worshipping and praising with others. I've know a lot of the people there most of my life.
I consider myself renewed and refreshed, rested, relaxed and ready for a new week after Sunday is all done and said. Maybe others have a different way of doing that but for me Sundays remain pretty much the same. It's always been a time for family too and now that camping season has begun I'll be spending a lot of time on Sundays with at least part of my family.
Part of my Sunday ritual is getting ready for church. I can wake up slowly sip my good cup of coffee and then shower and dress. I like dressing up a bit as it's really the only time I get to do so. My lifestyle is so casual that occasionally it makes me feel good to dress up. Of course dressing up is nothing like it used to be in the days of my youth. Styles have changed a great deal
I can remember coming home from church to fix Sunday dinner and donning my apron. Aprons were always worn to protect our clothing from stains. I still have them stashed away somewhere.
Our weather has improved finally and it should be a warmer day here so hopefully I can get outside this afternoon. Puttering about with this and that. Life in the slow lane is wonderful.
I hope that whatever you do, in whatever way pleases you, you will be refreshed and renewed too this Sunday.
