In truth a family is what you make it. It is made strong, not by number of heads counted at the dinner table, but by the rituals you help family members create, by the memories you share, by the commitment of time, caring, and love you show to one another, and by the hopes for the future you have as individuals and as a unit.
Last weekend Stan and I took the kids away for a family retreat. We have not had a free weekend since the end of July. It was a wonderful 3 days together hiking, eating, playing "Scattergories", laughing and great conversation.
Many memories were made and the kids decided that this fall get-away needs to be a tradition.
I am currently taking an online class with Stacy Jullian. Today she shared these thoughts and I wanted to share them with you.
"as we head into a very busy time of year - What does your holiday calendar look like? What can you do now to commit to family time that will create happy memories and develop a wonderful sense of hope for the future?"
