Tell it to your children, and let your children tell it to their children,
and their children to the next generation.
And so went the passage of Christmas....With some absences felt, I believe the wisdom of this biblical verse sums up how our holiday went. It was tradition, handed down from my grandparents to my parents to us--and now to our children-- that ultimately provided peace and joy and comfort. Maybe not physically, but my Mom's spirit was ever present. And Lucy's wonder and excitement at experiencing all things new, along with the togetherness of family, were priceless gifts--in fact, the best of them all.
