I love traditions, especially Christmas tradtions so this morning, I wanted to share with you a wonderful tradition that my friend Lindsey does with her family. Reading her family tradition has really made me take a look at my life throughout the holiday season. Her family does a really selfless act all to glorify God. I think about all the stories in the Bible of how Jesus served others and
1. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
As a mom, I think we all want a certain tradition that we pass on to our children and that we are able to create that memory with them. For my family, I think my favorite tradition growing up was serving breakfast to a women’s shelter every Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Now, I can tell you that this tradition some years was a struggle, especially in my teen and young adult years. My selfish heart just wanted some extra sleep those early mornings of Christmas and some years I just wanted to open gifts faster.
As, our family has grown and will hopefully continue to, the tradition we want to pass to them is the act of service. Whether it be in helping to serve breakfast, or picking out toys for another child, or even writing thank you cards to the women and men who serve our community and delivering them with cookies, this family tradition of service is one that we hold dearly to our hearts and truly want our kids to hold on to and cherish.
Hey y’all, I’m Lindsey. I was born and raised in the South. I met the love of my life while attending college in South Carolina, and have since relocated to Maryland. I’m a mom to two boys, so life is crazy and full of adventure most days. I also work as a nurse and love to blog about motherhood and the journey each day can bring, whether it is good or bad! I’m a daughter of the King! It is through His grace and love that even in the rough times on my journey through motherhood, he continues to teach me about grace and forgiveness. I enjoy time gathering with friends and family around a table of food and good wine, doing DIY projects around the house, watching college football, especially the Clemson Tigers, a good cup of coffee, and running!
