Building Traditions - Making Memories
Now that I'm married and we live far from our families, we aren't able to be with them for the holidays. It's a little sad not being able to see them and for me to taste my mother's stuffing, turkey, and gravy. But, it has become a blessing. It has allowed me to be able to call my mother and get her recipes, it has allowed me to teach my girls how to fix and prepare certain thanksgiving meals. It also allows me to see how blessed I am to have a dear husband who loves me and the kids. Being able to see all of this makes me forget about other family members (not in a bad way), but it helps me to remember who are my closest and dearest family members. That we pray will one day build on our traditions and will make memories for them to share with our grandchildren in years to come.
Thank You, Lord for giving me a wonderful family right here in my home. May Matt and I continue to look to You to build many traditions and memories for our little ones. In Your name, Amen.
