Where We Sit



When we are at Mass, we always sit in the same pew. Every Sunday. Our seats are not as pretty as those in the picture, but are much more comfortable! I may have mentioned before about our Church, it was made out of a pole barn that was donated from a family in our community. They donated several acres of land, on which sits our Church, Rectory, Resource Center, and Community Center. We have trails, and a lake to fish, and a campground. So as you may be able to tell, its a country church! :) Our seats are comfy plush chairs, each pew has several chairs linked together and a kneeler on the back of the chairs.
     For some reason, it is always important that we sit in the same pew each week, and it is very upsetting if someone sits in our spot! Sometimes Mass will be packed and if we don't get there early enough we lose our seats. Usually one of my family members will get there early and save the row for us all. Luckily we are women who have purses, and diaper bags to spread around the seats!
   This is the best part, our whole family (that attends this particular church) can fit into the entire row. Most people know us and know that is where we sit. The ushers know who we are and call us "The Family" like were the Mob or something. lol.  In our row sits my parents, my step-brother and his son, my sister and her husband and there 3 almost 4 kids, me and E and Gabe and Gemma. Sometimes when they are not in school, my little brother and sister too.
  As our family grows, though, we will no longer all be able to sit in the same row together, the babies are getting bigger and when they can't sit on laps anymore, will need a seat of their own. It's very sad for me. Especially since I lived away for 7 years, I've missed so much of my family growing up. I love that I have this opportunity now to claim our own row in church, to pray together with my family, to be a role model for my nieces and nephews, to just be together as a family. It's amazing.
  And so what if we save an entire row of seats every Sunday? My family is big, and we have lots of love. We may not always be able to see each other during the week, but Sunday is it. We claim our row at Mass. I will be sad when we have to split up, but for now we are "The Family" that sits and prays together, and I wouldn't have it any other way :)
