Oyster soup, baked goods, and a time of fellowship filled the house. Aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and neighbors flooded the house to share in the joy of the Christmas season. This tradition continued even after my mother and father-in-law moved to a senior housing apartment building, but at the various relative’s homes. This year was no different with the family gathering at Ed’s sister’s house.
Tomorrow’s blog will start my “2012 Traditions” series. Our pastor told us earlier in the month, “Watching and waiting require action!” As you watch 2011 wind down and wait for 2012 to arrive…this week’s blog series will prompt you into action for a positive and fruitful new year.
