When Something You Create Becomes Meaningful

Homemade donuts

Holiday traditions can be time consuming, a lot of work and very inconvenient. It becomes so easy in our busy lifestyles to say “oh, let’s just skip that tradition this year”. Yet, we said that last year too, and what about the year before?

Our family, like many others, have members who not only remembered the traditions that were handed down, they kept them going faithfully through the years. Until the years got to be too many, and they were no longer able to tackle them.

I didn’t want another year to go by, another party to go by, without mom’s famous donuts being served. Did they take a long time? yes, Was it kind of a pain to do? somewhat, but it was SO well worth it!

It wasn’t just donuts, it’s what they represented. It was a display of the past, and a promise to carry on what is inconvenient but oh so important in the future.

I hope you get a chance to create something meaningful today.

All the best,

Diane Long

 

Grateful for the Memories

Collection of pictures in frames

Although some of these people are no longer with me, I am grateful to have known them and embrace the impact they have had on my life. It’s not always easy during the holidays to be without those we love, but we learn to embrace even tighter, the ones we have in front of us. Hug someone today.
