Routines don’t necessarily have to be something you do every day, or even every week. Traditions, the more sacred and special routines that we participate in, might not have such a strict and regular time schedule, but they are still parts of our lives that mean something to us and our families.
They too can be a strong and unbroken fibre in our family tapestry. Year after year we partake in the ritual of something we hold dear. Whether it’s based in our ethnicity, steeped in our beliefs, or merely a way to create some regular family fun, the traditions we follow become important parts of our everyday story. It could be as simple as a recipe you cook together for a special occasion, or a place you visit each summer, but whatever it is, don’t forget to document your yearly traditions. In the not-so-distant future you will be able to lay them all out next to each other and see an entire timeline of your life.
