planning the holiday

There is something about saying  "we always do this"  which helps keep the years together. Time is such an elusive thing that if we keep on meaning to do something interesting, but never do it, year would follow year with no special thoughtfulness being expressed in making gifts, surprises, charming table settings, and familiar favorite food. Tradition is a good gift intended to guard the best gifts.

                                                     -  Edith Schaeffer


  1. And yet business and modern wisdom are telling us that the concept of tradition is a bad one......hmmmm.

    1. And it's the cause of so much fragmentation and purposelessness in our society.
