Holiday Reflections

Family stories that keep seasonal traditions alive.

Oftentimes words are worth repeating. For me, this is true as it relates to many of the stories I previously shared on this platform.

The holiday season encompasses all of us like a warm and cozy blanket. And a lot of my past words that were written in previously published family stories fill the heart with the spirit of the season.

As you read each story, I invite you to reflect on the meaning of family, happy memories, giving, diversity, and creativity often associated with this time of the year.
