Connections & So Much For Which to be Thankful

There are many wonderful things about this time of year . . . celebrating Thanksgiving and focusing upon the many things for which we have to be thankful, enjoying time together with the ones we love, all the joy which comes with celebrating Jesus' birth, taking family photos, enjoying established family traditions and beginning new family traditions. The Thanksgiving and Christmas times of year are truly wonderful times for many reasons.

This time of year is also wonderful, because of our grandchildren. Watching as they learn and celebrate the family traditions, taking photos, laughing together, taking photos, building memories together, taking photos and handing down the faith - there are so many wonderful opportunities to hand down the faith as we celebrate the Holidays . . . and of course, many wonderful opportunities to take photos as well!

I love this quote by Lois Wyse - "Grandchildren are the dots which connect the lines from generation to generation." We hand down the faith to our children and our children's children - this time of year we often do this through family traditions - and we trust and pray the day will come when they will do the same. We share memories, and if we have them, old family photos as we hand down the faith; and in so doing, we are able to help our grandchildren feel "connected" to those who came before them and understand how when they do the same, those who come behind them will also feel this connection.

So, with the Holidays before us, enjoy the time together. Enjoy handing down the faith. Enjoy the family traditions - new and old. Enjoy the family photos. Enjoy the "connections" between the generations and as you do, you will find you have even more for which to be thankful.
