What family traditions are you are most grateful for?
Traditions are indeed how we keep our balance. And if I am going to re-learn or put into practice the life lesson I'm most grateful for (see this post for that information), I need to experience some balance through tradition this year.
A family tradition I'm grateful for is celebrating the holidays with family. It's not always the same way or the same place or even the same time, but we spend it together. I enjoy the time spent cooking, planning, crafting, and sharing. We eat, we talk, we play games, and we celebrate. Work schedules or other family vacation conflicts have often meant that we don't do our celebrating on the particular day of the holiday, but we do always have a time we get together.
