Day of Thanksgiving #27: Tradition & Reflection. Today we celebrated another year of blessing and provision. My dad always say, "we don't have any traditions". But in the last few years, we have realized that there really are things we do every year - things we come to rely on for our security and happiness. We laugh about some things that have become tradition simply because we're reminded of those events each year - and that is a tradition in itself. We may not think about when mom spilled the water in Matt's lap at all this year....until we sit down to Thanksgiving next year...it WILL come up.
