Today is a day of reflection and one that is all about tradition. Don't you just love having traditions? There are as many traditions as there are families, I'm sure. Each has it's own special and unique way of doing things. I think it's really a very important part of keeping family close. Traditions give people a sense of security and a sense of belonging. They allow people to form wonderful memories, as well as provide them a chance to look forward to things to come in the future. Today my family will be:
I'll try and get things a little organized around here;)
Write down goals for the New Year, as well as reflecting on the one that has just passed. Also, finishing up the Christmas thank-you's.
And of course we will be partaking of traditional southern fare. Our plates we be filled with ham, collard greens, black eyed peas, cornbread, stewed tomatoes over rice, and sweet tea! We don't like rice pudding at our house, so Miss Bonnie is making bread pudding instead. I wonder who will find the nut this year?
Whatever traditions you and your family participate in today, I pray that you have a joy-filled day making wonderful new memories, and have the happiest of New Years!
