Homework: Family Matters Seminar: Tradition!

Homework: ~Write about a tradition that has influenced your life in a positive way. Idea: "Our family always had family prayer before we opened the Christmas presents; my mom always wrote a letter to us on our birthdays; my grandpa always told us he loved us at Thanksgiving Dinner."

We have a tradition of going to our son’s grave on Easter Sunday. We bring flowers, and the cemetery staff has placed a plastic egg on each of the graves in the area in which Taylor is buried (called ‘Babyland’). We place the flowers on the grave, we take a picture, and we talk about the resurrection. We talk about families being together forever. We talk about what it all means, and how it affects us.

And then we tell the kids to put those toys back on the other headstones and to stop touching the balloons and get back in the car.

What is this? Why, it's homework!
You can get in on the fun, too!

I love visiting Taylor.

And remember that time we couldn't figure out where all those toys went? That was awesome.
