I just returned from a trip to Texas to visit my family. The most wonderful & hardest part of my visit was saying goodbye to my 91 year old Mamo. Her health is failing and I know I will not see her again. We had a wonderful time "remembering."
This got me thinking about tradition and culture and how much it means to me. It isn't something you can just set aside is it?

Tradition is becoming more important to me and specifically passing it to my children.

Tradition is important, it gives kids a good sense of history and helps them feel connected to a larger group of people who have survived hard times and still flourished. I think that these are important lessons to share with our kids. Plus having a grandma who always makes sure there is a big pot of pasta and meatballs waiting for them when they come over isn't bad either.
