Family Dinners, a must!
One of my favorite times of the week is Sunday Evening. And today happens to be Palm Sunday, so even more reason to be thankful for the many blessings we have. During the week we get busy with schedules and life and more times than not if feels like a race to see how fast we can get dinner on the table, eat, get the kids bathed and everyone to bed; while also each of us managing to get our workouts in…did I mention housework? Most of us can agree life with kids, while it’s rich and full of love, is chaotic! Sunday’s for the Sinthusy Family start with church followed by a slow paced afternoon and a delicious Sunday dinner; that typically takes more than 30 minutes to prepare. We eat together and enjoy each other’s company without rushing through our meal.
We were doubly blessed this weekend because we were able to enjoy two great family dinners and beautiful weather on Saturday. Our family spent the day outside working on the yard, cleaning the cars and enjoying fun family time together. Afterwards we ate dinner outside; turkey burgers on whole wheat buns and homemade summer salad (tomatoes, red onions and feta cheese in a balsamic vinegar mix). We ended the night with some delicious homemade coconut-mango ice cream.
With all the chaos in this world and the hustle and the bustle the work week brings its important to stay connected as a family. It’s amazing how enriched and exhausted we all felt Saturday after a day of work and family. For us, if doesn’t matter so much what we are doing as long as we are active and together!
Have a Blessed Sunday!
