As I thought about what to share this month, the song “My Favorite Things”, from the Sound of Music, came to mind and lead me to share a few of my favorite things during the Christmas season.
What are some of your favorite traditions during Christmas?
Join me over at MomHeart as I show and tell some of our favorite traditions, memories, and things I enjoy doing during Christmas.
Jon has family from Norway so over the years we have been given many Norwegian Christmas Dolls and knickknacks. These are a few.
I began collecting pieces for this nativity set years ago. I like it because it’s non breakable so my girls could play with it.
Join me at MomHeart to discover the many values of family traditions.
Traditions are invaluable as they are part of the super glue that binds families together. Traditions give children a sense of security as we live in an ever changing, uncertain world. Traditions create closeness within the family as the repetitive events build memories and stability.
Does your family have special traditions you’d consider to be the ”super glue” that binds the family together? What traditions do your children enjoy most? To read more go to MomHeart.
As I ponder where to begin this post, my eldest daughter, Caryn (23), stopped by unexpectedly to say hi. It’s 10:30AM and we’re both yawning. Enthusiastically she decides we need to go grab coffee as she was up late packing for her upcoming move. Ugh! I’m trying to start this blog and her sister (11) is doing school. What’s a fun intentional mom suppose to do? “I don’t have time,” is the thought going through my mind. However, she lovingly drops this bomb, “Mom, just one more week before I leave.” (She’s moving to Detroit) Wisely I choose time with her to celebrate her last week home before she embarks on life’s newest adventures. Creating memories, especially with older children, often occurs in the midst of activities done spontaneously together.
Children, regardless of age, spell love T-I-M-E.
