Easy like Sunday morning

The lyrics to the Commodores song - with the exception of the title - have nothing at all to do with how I feel about Sundays.  I love the laziness of Sunday mornings - nothing to accomplish except to get to Mass, no chores waiting, no rushing to get out the door for school or work.  I get up when I want, play on the computer, cuddle with the cat and make a pot of tea.  Oh, the tea!  Not a hurried, dump some hot water in a commuter mug tea, but an honest-to-goodness pot of tea to relax with and enjoy.

I can take a long shower.  Watch CBS' Sunday Morning.  Catch up on some email.  Check to see if spring is here yet (it's not).

Ooh that's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning
That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning!


During Lent, Sundays are a little reprieve from our Lenten fast.  Since Sundays are always days of celebration (like a mini-Easter every week) and never a day of penance, we can choose to forego our Lenten fast.  It's a little reminder of the joy of the Resurrection.

Ooh that's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning
That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning!


For a lot of us, Sundays mean a family dinner, a lazy day on the couch to watch sports, or a family outing.  It's a day of rest - ordained by God.  Enjoy!
