Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
One of the first lessons I learned when I started to date the man I'd marry was the difference in meal choices on holidays. I don't know about you, but until I started "venturing out" to another family's holiday festivities, I thought EVERYONE had ham on Easter. I was wrong. Did you know some dare to eat turkey? Everyone knows this is a Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner meal. Seriously!
Okay, relax. Before anyone gets to upset or the loud jeering of "Yes, yes, finally, someone understands." Guess what the first lesson I learned as the future bride to Mr. Buske, every family has their own traditions and their own favorite foods to enjoy on the holidays. Unlike my teen and early twenty-something self, this is not wrong, it's just different. Difference is what makes life interesting and also exposes us to tastes, aromas, and possibilities we may never know exist...if it wasn't for this variety. To have turkey on Easter is not taboo, it's just different than how I was raised.
Can anyone else relate or am I alone in this thought and realization? What sparks this main course discussion, or debate depending on who you share it with? Let me tell you, because yesterday my sister-in-law hosted the family after church and she had both ham and turkey so regardless of your Easter tradition, it was covered. (Well for herself, her in-laws, and guests) Everyone was happy and selected their meat of choice, or possibly had a sampling of both. Although I'm a "ham on Easter" gal, I must admit, the turkey smelled and looked so good...I ate turkey. (Yikes, don't tell my family, lol)
Seriously...what is your families Easter traditional meal?
