That’s the way the story goes…

The holidays are times the old family stories are repeated. They may be slightly embellished as the years pass – probably viewed with much more humor and enjoyment than when the events actually occurred.

But repeated they are – even as new ones are added to become part of this valuable oral family history.

For children and adults alike – this is a connecting bond.  It’s a sharing of family ties – stories warm, bold and ridiculously funny – that with each retelling strengthens the web of family lore.

So rather than sighing when great-uncle George starts off with  “‘remember when ….”, sit back, listen and feel the gift of the generations.

Enjoy the holidays with your family.
