Home growing up memories Sunday music

Sunday music

by Shawni
Growing up sometimes we would wake up on Sundays to classical music blasting through our intercom system.

We rolled our eyes at our mother…the culprit of that grand idea.

My mother also always claimed that only classical music could be played in her car (during carpools).
More eye rolls.
But that classical music has become part of the fiber of who I am.  It moves me and I adore it more than I can say.
I couldn’t help but smile a few Sundays ago when I turned up my Sunday classical mix (we listen to it every single Sunday and have for as long as I can remember) to fill up our house with that beautiful, mellow, peaceful feeling it gives and I caught a small eye roll from one of my children.
I had a little vision right then and there of that daughter of mine as a mother some day, turning on some beautiful music on a Sunday to the eye rolling chagrin of her children, just like her mother did.
Just like her Grandmother did.
And I pictured her little secret smile at those eye-rolls.
That would match mine.

And how the beauty of that music would feed her soul.


That little glimpse couldn’t help but lift me up to make my whole heart smile.

You mean there are people in the world who get up early enough on Sundays that they have time enough to spare a second to turn on an iPod?! I need to work on that!

I always enjoy classical music… but feel overwhelmed about where to start when it comes to purchases and/or making my own playlists… would love to hear some of your favorites!!! Sunday worthy and not. Love your blog!

I grew up with the sounds of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on Sunday mornings. I do the same in my own family now. It soothes my soul too!

I am also curious what is on your mix. Like someone else said, it overwhelms me to figure out what to put on such a playlist. Hope you can share! Thanks! I think this is a wonderful idea and it is one of my goals this year to have more music playing in our home.
